If you struggle with arch pain in Owen Sound, our clinic is here to help you overcome it.
Your arches absorb stress when you walk or run and stabilize your body whenever you stand or complete any other type of motion. They also help your body adapt when you stand on uneven surfaces. Since your arches play such a large role in your daily function, at Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic, we realize how annoying, and in some cases, debilitating arch pain can be.
Whether you’re experiencing arch pain due to age, excessive activity, overuse, or an injury, we’ll determine the exact cause of your discomfort and introduce you to effective treatment options. For example, if your arch pain is chronic, we may recommend wearing orthotics. Custom orthotics can restore normal foot function and support your arch whenever you’re on your feet. This will help ease some of the stress put on this part of your foot.
In addition to the treatment options we prescribe for you, we may also provide you with helpful recommendations that can help you ease some of your arch pain on your own. For example, we often tell our patients who want to overcome the pain in their arches to:
- Do their best to maintain a healthy weight
- Limit how often they wear shoes with a high heel
- Wear proper shoes, especially while exercising, to make sure their weight is evenly distributed throughout their foot when they move
