There is a band of thick tissue called the plantar fascia that runs across the bottom of your foot, it connects your heel bone to your toes. Often times this band becomes tight and inflammed thus causing heel and arch pain.
This condition requires a lot of treatment and supportive care
. Visit a podiatrist(foot doctor) for assistance. In the meantime take advil
for pain and inflammation
, request physical therapy
, and buy a pair of orthotics
. You may need custom orthotics in the future.
