Arch Pain is Painful
Do You Have Arch Pain
Arch Pain is an inflammation and or burning sensation at the arch of the foot. Causes of arch pain can be related to many conditions. Do not let arch pain go without treatment. Because your arch supports the weight of your entire body, arch pain tends to affect other areas of your feet, ankles, knees, legs, and back.
Symptoms of arch pain is a progressive condition that may contribute to more serious foot ailments such as:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Lower Back and hip pain
- Knee pain
- Achilles tendonitis
- Heel pain
- Morton’s neuroma
- Ball of foot pain
Arch Pain Causes
Causes of foot pain can be related to many conditions. Arch and ankle pain is not a condition in itself, but a result of some underlying cause. However, most frequently the cause is a common condition called plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a pain in the arch due to excessive stretching and tearing of the tendons on the underside of the foot, usually due to over-pronation. With repeated tearing, these tendons can become inflamed and very painful. Once the tendons that support the arch lose their elasticity they are no longer able to support the structure of the foot, resulting in arch pain while running and walking.
Treatment And Prevention
This is a common foot condition that can be easily treated. If you suffer from arch pain avoid high heeled shoes whenever possible. Buy supportive shoes, purchase sturdy shoes with cushioning along the sole, and walk around before purchasing to evaluate their strain. Depending on your lifestyle, your shoes and insoles need to support both your everyday activities (like work) and more intense activities (such as running, jogging, or sports). When the foot pain is pronation related (flat feet) a proper arch support is recommended for treating the pain. Arch supports provide shock absorption and cushion your feet as you walk.
