There is so much to see in The Blue Mountains area, but if arch pain is slowing you down, come see us.
Back in the days before we really understood the workings of the human foot, when someone was observed walking in obvious pain, the first thought often was, “That poor dear, she has fallen arches!” We now know that there are many different causes for arch pain because that area of the foot plays such a large role in walking and moving around. The arches absorb stress, stabilize balance, and help you adapt to uneven surfaces.
The foot is a very complex part of the human body. With 33 joints, 26 bones, and more than 100 ligaments, tendons, and muscles, it stands to reason that arch pain could easily occur after overuse, excessive activity, improper footwear or an injury. The important thing to remember is that pain is the body’s response to a problem that needs to be resolved. If you are experiencing arch pain, give us a call at Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic. We can determine the exact cause of your discomfort and discuss effective treatments or changes that you should make to restore normal foot function.
Our recommendation might include reducing the amount of time spent in high heels, or other footwear that doesn’t provide the proper support, or how to choose the right shoes for your activities. Proper footwear, particularly during exercise, will protect you from arch pain going forward. Maintaining a healthy weight is also a good way to keep your feet healthy.
