Need new orthotics!: If you used to wear them and now they are either too small or they are worn, your body is telling you something. For the pain, rub your foot in the arch area to warm it up. Also, a nice cold bottle that you can roll your foot on will help decrease the pain and pulsating. ...Read more

Plantar fasciitis?: Plantar fasciitis, or an arch ligament strain is a very common reason for arch and heel pain in the boot of the heel.

While good supportive shoes and supports are a cornerstone of treatment, anti-inflammatories, steroid injections, physical therapy (including stretching) may be necessary. Prescription foot orthoses may work better than over the counter arch supports. See a podiatrist. ...Read more
