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 more

Pain to touch in arch of foot. I have flat feet and had dr scholls inserts in my shoes. Could that have caused the pain and what can I do for it?

Often, I recommend breaking in insoles a few hours per day at first. This allows your foot to get used to the insoles.

I walk a lot my foot started hurtingunder the big toe at the side near the arch of foot when walking, doesn't hurt when touching it also throbs at night?

Big toe: There is a condition known as hallux limitus. That causes first joint arthritis in the foot. When you walk the pressure that translates to the big toe irritates and causes pressure on the nerve passing along that side of the toe. See your podiatrist for an x-ray and diagnosis. Treatment for this condition can vary. Orthotics can help or you may need surgery. ...Read more

Calf is achey. History of sciatica. The arch of foot seems to be collapsing with weigh. A little tender to touch. No swelling, heat, or redness. Cause?

Its All Related: Back is related to how the arch fell in your foot resulting in knee joints changing position that results in hip issues then translating to stress in your spine resulting in pieced nerves causing your sciatica. That's said, likely improving your arch with support/orthotic will help reduce the back pain. Remember this will not happen overnight but will take time and your feet will hurt initially. ...Read more
