Symptom: Walking pain

DESCRIPTION: Pain in one of the many joints, muscles and tendons involved in walking can sidetrack even the most determined walker's routine. A sore back, aching knees, stiff hip, tender ankle or throbbing toe can make taking a stroll difficult. Common causes: •Shin splints. Common in new walkers, shin splints causes pain in the lower leg. It may be caused by overstriding or wearing heels that are too high. •Plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can cause severe pain and occurs when the tissue connecting the heel bone to the base of the toes becomes inflamed. Walkers who exhibit over-pronation (rolling the foot inward excessively with each step) may be prone to this condition. •Achilles tendon injuries. The Achilles tendon – the thick tendon that connects the heel and foot to the back of the calf muscles – can become inflamed or even rupture due to repetitive stress, an accident or injury or improper footwear. •Knee and hip pain. Pain in the knees and/or hips may be the result of arthritis, an accident or injury or inflammation or misalignment of the joints. •Foot pain. Bunions, toe fracture or ill-fitting shoes can contribute to aching feet.
