Try some over the counter arch supports - such as super feet or smart sole brands. Avoid gel at the arch. ...Read more

If pain continues, this will also tell the doctor there is underlying pathology and more tests or advance treatment is necessary. Hope this answers your question. ...Read more

Exercise via swimming for now. ...Read more
