Viewer Question:If a person has back strain in the lower lumbersacral area and has petella femural syndrome, can these problems cause an individual to have foot trouble (i.e. Pain under the bottom of feet)?
Doctor's Response:It is possible to have pain, numbness, and/or tingling on the bottom of the foot when the nerves from the lower part of the spine that supply sensation to the feet are injured. This most commonly occurs from a disc herniation, but can also occur when bone of the building blocks of the spine (vertebrae) is directly pinching on these nerves.
Thank you for your question.
