Arch Pain / Arch Strain
Check products that provide immediate pain relief for Arch Pain Check products that provide immediate pain relief for Arch Pain
Definition

The term arch pain (often referred to as arch strain) refers to an inflammation and/or burning sensation at the arch of the foot.
Cause

There are many different factors that can cause arch pain. A structural imbalance or an injury to the foot can often be the direct cause. However, most frequently the cause is a common condition called plantar fasciitis.

The plantar fascia is a broad band of fibrous tissue located along the bottom surface of the foot that runs from the heel to the forefoot. Excessive stretching of the plantar fascia, usually due to over-pronation (flat feet), causes plantar fasciitis.

The inflammation caused by the plantar fascia being stretched away from the heel often leads to pain in the heel and arch areas. The pain is often extreme in the morning when an individual first gets out of bed or after a prolonged period of rest.

If this condition is left untreated and strain on the longitudinal arch continues, a bony protrusion may develop, known as a heel spur. It is important to treat the condition promptly before it worsens.
Treatment and Prevention

This is a common foot condition that can be easily treated. If you suffer from arch pain avoid high-heeled shoes whenever possible. Try to choose footwear with a reasonable heel, soft leather uppers, shock absorbing soles and removable foot insoles. When the arch pain is pronation related (flat feet), an orthotic designed with a medial heel post and proper arch support is recommended for treating the pain. This type of orthotic will control over-pronation, support the arch and provide the necessary relief.

If the problem persists, consult your foot doctor.

it may be plantar fasciatis as YMBL posted.  I've had it and your symptoms sound similar to mine.  I had a very nad case where i needed to go to physical therapy and get implants for my shoes.  I had to wear the implants for several months.

I had a mild case that developed from playing basketball in worn out shoes (playing indoors keeps the sneaks looking new, but the cushioning wears out).  Damn it was painful.

Thanks guy the pain is pretty bad I guess I will go see my doctor.  I wear flip flops all the time even when I work out. Do yall think that could have something to do with it ? The only time I do not wear them is when I am at work.

I have a job where my whole body hurts the next morning. I think when landing on your feet allot, like when you step off of something. The weight from your body can irritate your feet. I'm on my feet all the time at work, so I definitely have some comfortable shoes. There's a chance that could be your problem to. Shoes last for up too three hundred miles, then you'll have to get a new pair. Foot pain is usually because of old shoes that youíre wearing. If you canít buy some new shoes at that time, try to buy new shoe insoles.

Good shoes will help, as well as calf stetching. You can also massage the plantar fascia origin with your toes extended (very painful but does help). Sit with your knee crossed over the other and pull your toes up towards your knee, the use your knuckles or a massage tool to beat the hell out of the origin by the heel. Doing this for 5-10 mins a day will help quite a bit.

Cortisone shots are not usually very effective anyway and can weaken the fascia leading to tear.

The problem occurs when you sleep - most people plantarflex their feet; this shortens the fascia and it scars in a shortened state.  Then when you stand up in the morning it re-tears, setting up a daily cycle of injury.  The first thing to try is keep your foot dorsiflexed at night - there is a sock that can help:  http://www.thesock.com/  During the day an orthopedic boot can help to immobilize it.

It is important to tell whether it is actually your arch, though.  Make sure the doc you saw is sure.  Posterior tibialis tendon problems can become chronic and debilitating if not treated.  Early on, arch supports are the treatment.  Advanced painful arch collapse is treated with tendon transfer, osteotomy or fusion.

Karl,
Go to a shoe store that tends to have old people as a customer base.  They should have birkenstock inserts that you can insert into what ever shoe (not open shoes like flip flop though) you are wearing.   Have the people working there to "fit" you for the inserts.

My workout partner, husband and I ALL had Planter F.  We used the inserts for a few months and now none of us have Planter F.  Mine was so bad I would limp in the mornings for awhile.

Onlyme had terrible Planter F and I believe he got some relief from the inserts.

The are about 50.00.  WELL WORTH the money.

Get them I guarantee they will help you Cheesy

I had the same thing.  What I did was keep a tennis ball next to my bed.  In the morning before I would walk around i would roll the ball on the floor with the arch of my foot.
