Flooring and Your Feet

Many people have experienced foot pain from standing all day, either at work or at home. As it turns out, the floors installed around your house may be making the problem worse. Whether you are young or old, aches and pains can easily come from constantly being on your feet so any efforts made to decrease the discomfort can make all the difference in improving your physical and emotional well-being. These efforts begin with making your home as comfortable as possible, as the type of flooring you install can greatly impact your feet as you continue to go about your daily routines. Laminate, linoleum, vinyl, and carpet are just a few examples of floors offering physical benefits to homeowners who are all too familiar with the effects of minor and moderate foot pain. Selecting new floors for your home may seem challenging since each type comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. But doing so may help to improve existing foot pain. If you are considering changing the flooring in your home for relief from foot pain, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist for specialized recommendations that would best suit your needs.

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with Darren Day, DPM from Hawaii. Our doctor will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.


Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
  • Flat Feet
  • Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.


Treatment depends upon the cause of the foot pain. Whether it is resting, staying off the foot, or having surgery; podiatrists have a number of treatment options available for foot pain.
