In brief: 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.
