Review of the Causes of Ideal Feet Complaints – Part 2

28 Dec

You will probably never realize how many steps you take in a day until you begin to experience chronic pain with each placement of your foot. There is little that is as debilitating as losing the ability to walk or run without feeling a dull ache or sharp stab of pain.  At Ideal Feet, we talk to people every day who are tired of not being able to run or work out due to the health of their feet. Our job is to help educate and provide a custom tailored solution to the causes of their injury.

Today we take a look at the 2nd most common complaint we hear from Ideal Feet customers – that of arch pain.

2.    Arch Pain – Ever notice the bridge that runs along the lines of your foot? This area is called the arch which takes on much of your weight whenever you stand on your feet. As such, this specific region is prone to stress that can easily lead to swelling, tenderness and leg cramps.  Arch pain can also be indications of problems pertaining to obesity, poor blood circulation, and arthritis.

Pain along the arch is often confused with flat feet, but they are not the same issue. You can have perfectly formed arches that still ache consistently due to high impact activities like running or sports combined with improper support. When your arches begin to collapse due to being over-stressed, the entire alignment of your feet, knees, and back is disrupted, which can lead to aches and pains throughout your body.

That painful lower back could really be an arch support problem, which is why it is important to speak with a doctor about your feet and keep them healthy. We at Ideal Feet hear complaints about foot pain all the time and are happy to answer what questions we can, so let us know how we can be of service. Stay tuned for our 3rd installment of problems we can help solve where we look at heel pain complaints.
