Symptoms of Foot Arch Pain
Most heel pain is caused by plantar fascitis, a stress injury reminiscent of carpal tunnel syndrome or tennis elbow. It affects the plantar fascia, a ligament extending from the heel bone to the ball of the foot, in other words, the arch of your foot. This ligament is responsible for supporting the arch of the foot, sustaining weight during walking or running. The condition is characterized by soreness throughout the ligament. Depending on the severity of your case, foot arch pain treatment may range from basic cold compression therapy to advanced direct treatments such as splinting, orthotics, taping, and physical therapy.
