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

Spain or strain: It sounds like a strain or sprain. As mentioned previously, rice therapy is a good first line of treatment. Orthotics will help as well. 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

Combo treatment. : If you have plantar fasciitis, and hurt most with the first few steps in the am, the more you can do together, the better: #1: supportive shoes. #2: firm inserts/orthotics. #3: oral antiinflammatories (check with your dr). #4: stretching your foot/calf. #5: icing (10 min at a time). You may also need physical therapy or cortisone injections, or eswt if available in your area. Soaking won't help! ...Read more

My doctor said that my arch is too high and as a result the middle of my foot hurts once it is lifted of the ground. Why is this happening?

Pes cavus: An excessively high arch can cause the muscles to work harder when you're walking or wearing high heels. This can be a fatigue of the muscles and can usually be easily treated with orthotics. If you're also working out a lot you might be dehydrated or need electrolytes. ...Read more

NEED FOR SUPPORT!: Most shoes aren't always what is bad, usually it's the crummy insoles they come with! there are many possibe reasons (plantar fascitis leaps to mind) that you may have pain in the heels, but try arch supports like spenco polysorb (http://www.Spenco.Com/products/footcare/poly-sorb) and otc anti-inflammatories (like aleve). If these don't help, see a podiatrist. ...Read more
