Why Does the Inside of My Foot Hurt?

Monday, 04 January 2021 00:00

The inside of the foot refers to the inner edge of the foot, along the side of the big toe. Pain in this area can be indicative of various foot conditions. Pain on the inside of the foot near the big toe may be caused by a bunion, a bony growth located at the base of the big toe joint. Pain along the inside arch of the foot may be due to a strain of the abductor hallucis muscle, which can be caused by a walking pattern in which the foot rolls inward too much. Pain in the middle of the foot could be due to a stress fracture of the navicular bone. If you are experiencing pain on the inside of your foot, it is recommended that you seek the care of a podiatrist who can diagnose and treat your condition.
