Our feet are the foundation for our entire physical body, and they carry us around on average about 160,000 kilometers over the lifetime.
The foot is a complex anatomical structure which may be affected by disease within the foot itself or the body.
Osteoarthritis (OA) involves inflammation of the tissues around the joints in the foot, like – the toes. In addition, OA can develop in the ankle, this is typically following a previous injury to the joint from long-standing inflammatory arthritis.
Bones in the feet can break for a variety of reasons. For instance, impact fractures can occur if you fall from a height, landing on your feet. Also, fractures can occur when the bones are crushed by a heavy object.
A bunion is a bony growth which presents at the base of the big toe. Bunions are most frequently the result of wearing tight fitting shoes with a narrow toe box.
This condition can make it substantially difficult to fit shoes properly and foot pain can result from the bunion rubbing against footwear.
The plantar fascia is a weblike ligament which connects the heel to the front of the foot. The plantar fascia supports the arch of the foot and helps you walk.
This condition usually occurs when that ligament gets inflamed, due to stress and tension on the heel, that can be caused by high-impact activities (such as – running) or wearing shoes with high arches.
What Do Feet Symbolize From A Spiritual Point Of View?
Our feet help us walk into the future, and if you are afraid of the future or think that your life can not go a certain way, your feet will begin to slow down or even stop your future progress.
Look at your situation consciously and accept your fear or any other feelings of resistance. If external progress is not possible, look within and find the peace and trust regarding what you really want and what can be done without too much difficulty. Take the necessary steps.
This way, you will be able to go through life with optimism and joy once again.
The left foot represents the emotional side and not being able to go to a place, even if you want to.
Spiritual Meaning of Right Foot Pain
The right foot represents the rational part and not being able to go to a place, even if you have to go to that place.
From a spiritual point of view, plantar fasciitis indicates that the person doesn’t find the way to move forward in life. Either you experience a great fear, or you feel like others hold you back. You are uncertain about your path.
Spiritual Meaning of Broken Foot
Our bones symbolize stability and support as well as the fulfillment of norms, and a fractured bone indicates that you have missed the end of a phase in your development. Now your body tells you to break free of the past.
It is also possible that you have experienced too much stress in your physical activities and not enough interest in spirituality. Let yourself be interrupted on your way or, even better, take a break from the rigid part of your path.
If you have a flexible spirit, you will be flexible in the way of life as well. When you are malleable, your bones will give you stability, and there will be no need for them to break.
Experiencing pain in the Achilles heel always indicates a certain weakness of your inner state and mental vigor. That’s why you are so easily hurt and you cannot forget even a small hit, as shown by your bruises.
Ask yourself what you really want and stay true to yourself and to the desires of the Self, then you will find more support.
Do not always be the one who offers. Be yourself; you will no longer be dependent on the love of others. You will discover the benevolence of love and the beauty that hides within the depths of your being. Thus, you will be able to share it with others.
Pride, stubbornness, selfishness or unconscious fear prevents you from being humble and making concessions once in a while. This may cause inflexibility and stiffness in your knees.
If you manifest more tolerance and sympathy and learn how to forgive, you will be able to prevent more serious knee problems in the future. Once you have learned humility again, you will be able to move your knees easier.
