Absolutely: The plantar fascia ligament plays an important part of the foot arch structure as do the bones. If you fracture a bone considered part of the arch then it could place more stress on the plantar fascia ligament for support. See a podiatrist for evaluation and treatment if you have this issue. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Born w/flat feet & fallen arches. Slight pronation on sprained ankle than other foot. What does traumatic tendonitis secondary to pronation mean?
Not necessarily: Most things in excess aren't good. Most (not all) arch problems come from flattening of the arch and insufficient arch support in shoes. High heels normally provide good arch support because they don't let the arch flatten out. ...Read more
Extremely painful tibialis sheen on long or fast walk. I already wear custom orthoses with arch sup &metatarsal pad for flat foot and metatarsal pain?
CLARIFICATION: "Tibialis sheen?" Do you mean tib. posterior or tib. anterior? I will speak to the tibialis posterior tendon. If this is your diagnosed problem, I always utIlize an MRI to look at the tendon. Then, orthoses, bracing, or a cast can be tried depending upon the integrity of the tendon. Therapy is another option. If all these fail, surgery can be discussed. I have pretty good success with a brace. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Definately yes: A custom orthotic made to fit your foot will redistribute pressure across the entire foot, can ease heel pain, arch pain, even knee and low back pain. You need to see a podiatrist to have a cast taken. Don't use a cast where you step into a foam box- not accurate enough, either plaster or computer scan. The computer is not better than plaster- only neater. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Use orthotic 4 overpronation+bunion used 2 wear aa width shoe age+bunin med width now.Heel backof heel&ankle still narrow should wear custom made shoe?
Gel heel liner: There are so many shapes and sizes of feet that shoe manufacturers cannot possibly make shoes for every need. What i would recommend you do is find a shoe that fits your toes and then purchase a gel heel liner that goes into the back of the shoe to help snug the shoe around the heel. You can search online for gel heel liners and you will likely find a company that sells them.N. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Post cavus surgery-3 mo after surgery arch dropped. Big toe stuck-bones jammed on xray. Surgeon "never be as good as pre surgery & orthotics" Can fix?
Post- operative: healing and rehab takes one full year with any reconstruction. After that point, if patients that are still having pain, return of deformity or non-optimal results I would discuss possible surgical intervention. If you would like a 2nd opinion for a review of post-surgical xrays and possible treatment options currently and/or future treatments, please consult me! ...Read more

Curve lasted shoe: I am in your shoes in terms of foot structure. We are in the minority. Most people have a flattened foot structure. Depending on how much you walk, you can use a good running shoe as well. Orthotics is another option that will help you. They sure helped me...and that was 35 years ago....You need a shoe that helps with shock absorption. Supinators have a rigid foot structure. Road Runner Sports. ...Read more

Yes: Running barefoot is a fairly new fad.Change in activity, should be done gradually.When going from a good supportive shoe to no shoes, different muscle groups are worked and bone and ligaments are stressed differently.This can lead to overuse and breakdown(injury). If you are going to try barefoot or minimalist shoes, start with kicking around in them for few days, then short walks to running.Dr l. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How can physical changes in foot from untreated compartment syndrome - high arch, cavus foot, & claw toes - be fixed? Can an Achilles lengthening fix?
Feeling "pulling" in arch of foot when walking. Tender arch. I am flat-footed. Is this plantar fasciitis? Home treatments? Podiatrist copay is $50. :(
Sounds like but: Sounds like it, but plantar fasciitis is not the only condition that can create pain in the arch. Tendon dysfunction, tendon tear, foot sprain, nerve entrapment or even fracture are some of the conditions thay can create pain in the arch. The co-pay is nothing if you consider how much it would be if you leave something untreated. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
