Arch Pain / Ball-of-Foot Pain / 2nd Toe Pain



Pain across the bottom of the foot at any point between the heel and the ball of the foot is often referred to as "arch pain” Although this description is non-specific, most arch pain is due to strain or inflammation of the plantar fascia (a long ligament on the bottom of the foot). This condition is known as plantar fasciitis and is sometimes associated with a heel spur.
In most cases, arch pain develops from overuse, improper shoes, weight gain, or acute injury, such as repetitive trauma. If arch pain persists beyond a few days, treatment should be sought to prevent this condition from becoming worse.
Generally, conservative measures such as custom prescription orthotics, can relieve the painful symptoms by compensating for the biomechanical dysfunction (how internal and external forces affect the foot).
