Arch Pain

March 3, 2012

Arch pain is referred to as any pain across the bottom of the foot, between the heel and the ball of the foot.

The root cause of arch pain is often flexible, flat feet. As the arch falls to the ground with every step, the muscles responsible for keeping the arches in tact wear out. This results in pain often described as a sore, fatiguing, burning sensation. Another cause of arch pain is due to strain or inflammation of the plantar fascia (a long ligament on the bottom of the foot).

At Footcare Place Toronto, our treatment plans include professional fitted orthopaedic shoes with supports, or custom-made orthotics.
