Arch pain, often caused by conditions such as plantar fasciitis, flat feet, as  well as high arches, can significantly impact daily activities. Custom orthotics, specifically designed shoe inserts, provide tailored support and cushioning to alleviate this discomfort. These orthotics help distribute pressure evenly across the foot, reducing strain on the arch and improving overall foot mechanics. Common causes of arch pain include overuse, wearing improper footwear, and biomechanical abnormalities. Treatments typically involve rest, and anti-inflammatory medications. Stretches that target the arch, Achilles tendon, and calf muscles can enhance flexibility and reduce pain. Risk factors for arch pain include obesity, prolonged standing, high-impact sports, and aging. If left untreated, arch pain can lead to complications such as chronic pain, altered gait, and additional foot problems. If you have persistent or worsening arch pain, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist who can diagnose the cause of the pain and recommend custom orthotics and other treatments to restore foot health.
