One of the most common explanations for bottom of foot pain is Capsulitis/Bursitis. With this condition, ligaments on the bottom of the foot become over-stretched and inflamed. Abnormal foot structure, or a trauma to the foot are the typical culprits. The resulting pain can be treated, however.

First of all, make sure you are wearing proper footwear that is supportive and fits well. Avoid high heels that put too much pressure on your forefoot. Sometimes getting soft insoles or orthotics to wear in your shoes can help as well. Icing the affected area and taking an anti-inflammatory is also beneficial. If these treatments do not work, ask a podiatrist about cortisone injections.
