Arch support: Many types of foot and leg pain are caused by lack of arch support. The mechanics of the foot are very complicated and if there are even small variations it can cause a lot of pain. Wearing an arch support in your shoe that is the right fit for your foot type can help a lot. I recommend you see a podiatrist for evaluation and treatment.
