We highly recommend seeing your podiatrist at the onset of arch pain. We will sit down with you and ask you questions about your pain to help us diagnose which structures may be affected and what might have been the cause of injury. We will assess your feet for any biomechanical abnormalities and assess any of the footwear that you wear to see if appropriate for your feet. If we think it is necessary, we will refer you to get an x-ray or diagnostic ultrasound to get a better idea at what your diagnosis may be.
Once we have a working diagnosis, we will be able to come up with a short term and long term management plan to get you pain free and active again as soon as possible. Methods of treatment we may recommend may include: Footwear changes, Stretches and strengthening, Activity modification, Padding or taping the foot, Orthoses, Shockwave Therapy, Therapeutic ultrasound, or Dry needling.
