Causes of Foot pain originating in the foot include broken bones, calcaneal spurs, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, and infections. Systemic conditions and diseases, such as peripheral neuropathy resulting from diabetes and peripheral vascular disease (atherosclerosis) can sometimes result in foot pain.
