Women’s feet are quite different to men’s feet – women usually have a broader forefoot and narrower heel and have more flexible feet and ankles compared to men.
Women tend to suffer more regularly from foot pain and are also more vulnerable to certain foot problems. This is largely due to the wearing of narrow fitting shoes that squeeze the toes together and from high heels that cramp the forefoot and pose risk for arch and ankle problems.
Other reasons women may suffer from foot and lower limb problems:
Women are more prone to getting the following foot and ankle problems: Bunions, Morton’s Neuroma, Metatarsalgia and other forefoot pain, Plantar Fasciitis or heel pain and Ankle sprains.
