The prevalence of foot problems in the general population is 10%, and in the elderly it ranges from 53% to 95%. Proximal plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of painful feet in clinical practice, and is twice as common among women as among men. Metatarsalgia is probably the most common cause of foot pain among middle-aged women.
