20 Jul Treating Arch Pain
Do you experience pain in the arch of your foot with every step? This pain could be coming from a variety of different factors. Arch pain can interfere with your mobility and keep you from the activities of daily living. At Cherrywood Foot Care, we are committed to helping you relieve your pain so you can maximize your foot health.
One of the most common foot concerns is arch pain. The arch of your foot is the area on the bottom of your foot between the ball and heel and plays a critical role in activities where you’re on your feet. The arch helps stabilize your movement, absorb shock, and adapt to changes in terrain. You may feel arch pain in the balls and heels of your feet, but the pain can spread to the tops of your feet and ankles. Some of the causes of arch pain may include:
- Plantar Fasciitis.
- Flat Feet.
- High Arches.
Arch pain can also result from a tear or structural issues aggravated by weight gain, overuse, or aging. Our team of board-certified podiatrists will be able to determine the root cause of your arch pain and treat it accordingly.
While home remedies like resting and stretching can help alleviate arch pain, some people may have trouble finding relief without the help of a podiatrist. Our team will evaluate the severity and cause of your arch pain and determine a course of treatments to help you find relief. Some of these treatments can include the following:
- Manual Therapy.
- Night Splints.
- Cortisone Injections.
- Custom Orthotics or Shoe Inserts.
- Braces or Casts.
When you start to notice arch pain, it’s important to rest to allow the tissues to heal. We also recommend that you avoid unsupportive footwear to avoid aggravating your pain and worsening your condition.
