One of the most common causes of foot arch pain is plantar fasciitis. It’s a condition that affects the tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes, which is called the plantar fascia.
If you’re experiencing foot arch pain, such as inflammation or dull tingling, you might have plantar fasciitis. The pain is caused by excessive running, poorly fitting shoes, or weight gain. You can do many things to reduce your pain or even get rid of it completely.
Treatment possibilities include stretches, ice, anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, physical therapy, foot orthotics, ultrasonic treatment, or surgery.
Suppose a podiatrist says your foot arch pain isn’t plantar fasciitis. In that case, your podiatrist may look into a case of bone spurs, cavus foot, overpronation, or posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD).
