Hi doc, lately I've realized that my foot have become wider, and looks the foot arch have reduced. Causing pain behing ankle, near arch. Pls help?
What is Cause. A collapsing arch could is commonly due to wear and tear but can also be arthritis, tendon problems and other causes. This change will affect the way you walk and contribute to other joint pains. Simple-try an over the counter arch support at a running store. I would certainly consider seeing a foot specialist to know the cause of the problem so that it can be addressed appropriately.
Plantar fasciitis. Get arch support, roll a can of soda under foot, roll a towel with your toes, strech you calf (bent foot upward) take tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin.
