One foot hurts in arch and heel areas.  I have flat feet.  What to do about the pain?

Think, Think!!!!!!!!: No doubt, your flat feet have been with you for some time now. I doubt the flatness is the immediate cause of your pain. Having said that, try to think of something that you did just before you began having the issue. Possibly shoes, activity, of increase in activity are examples. Find the cause and stop doing it. In the meantime try heat, Advil (ibuprofen) and rest to begin the fix. If no success, see a doc. ...Read more

Pinhed nerve: You may have a pinched nerve to the area on the bottom of the arch area. When you wear the brace the pressure is taken off the area and it feels better. Talk to your doctor about a medication that can help to get rid of the pain in addition to the brace. ...Read more

Arch pain: Many people suffer from flattening of the arches when they stand up (flexible flat foot). This changes the position of the tendons and joints in the foot, causing muscular imbalance and sometimes even arthritic changes. It can also put stress on ligaments, such as the plantar fascia, which runs across the bottom of your feet and supports your arch. Visit your podiatrist if it does not go away. ...Read more

However, barefoot or dancing shoes usually do not lend themselves to orthotic use. Consider learning taping techniques to support and protect your arch while dancing. Also remember to warm up and stretch well prior to any practice or workout. ...Read more

Be seen: I would definitely be seen rather than give up your previously more active lifestyle. It may be something as simple as a minor foot malalignment issue that may completely respond to an orthotic or change in your shoe wear. Be seen. ...Read more
