What Is Causing My Arch Pain?
Arch pain is a common issue that can affect anyone. Our arches are all different heights and take on a lot of pressure from the body, which is why arch pain is so common. It affects athletes most often, but can also occur in people who are not as active. Dr. Jeffrey Agricola, your podiatrist at Prestige Podiatry in Indianapolis, and Carmel, IN, can help you if your arches are causing you pain.
What’s Causing Your Arch Pain?
The arches play an important role in your foot health. The arch stretches from toes to your heels and helps bear weight, absorb shock, and keep your balance. When you’re experiencing arch pain, it can really affect your ability to enjoy your normal activities and you may actually experience pain throughout other parts of your body that stem from your arches.
Dr. Agricola can sit down with you and discuss what could be causing your arch pain. Flat feet or high arches can be factors of arch pain that stem from structural issues. These can cause further issues to occur and cause you more arch pain.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of arch pain and is caused by inflammation or overuse of the plantar fascia which runs through the arch. You may experience pain and stiffness throughout your foot and it can become even more painful after prolonged times on your feet.
If arch pain is severely affecting your ability to enjoy your normal life, it may be time to see your podiatrist for treatment to increase your quality of life.
