Overuse Stress: Your pain appears to be related to overuse, or possibly a biomechanical issue. If you are an excessive pronator or supinator, you could be creating additional to stress to the foot and joints. Possible a more supportive shoe, off the shelf insole, or possibly a custom prescription orthotic may be needed.
