Do the arches in your feet ache after standing for a while?
Or do they hurt when you are walking and running?
Seeing as the arches in your feet are specifically designed as a mechanical structure to support your feet and all that is above them, it is no wonder they can hurt from time to time! Quite often, arch pain is due to them collapsing gradually over time, which reduces the amount of support the foot can provide.
Other times it is simply due to poor structure and function of your feet which can be an inherited feature. This very common problem can be readily addressed and corrected using the proper assessment techniques such as computerized walking assessment technology using the SiliconCoach digital analysis software which we have onsite.
We can also examine and recommend the appropriate prescription orthotic device if required to assist in supporting and maintaining the arches in the desired mechanical position and hence reduce the amount of fatigue and discomfort that you are experiencing.
