Complaints of tired, sore, swollen or painful feet can mean something different for each person. For some, pain develops due to a lack of natural fat padding on the bottom of the foot. Other sufferers develop plantar fasciitis, an inflammatory condition of the plantar fascia (the thick connective tissue beneath the skin that runs from heel to toes). We also treat many nerve problems that have to be considered in an examination.
