What Is Arch Treatment?
The arch of the foot is the middle area that curves upward into a bow shape. Because the arch must bear a significant amount of the weight of the body, it can be subject to significant stress. In addition, the muscles that connect the arch to other parts of the foot can be affected by problems in those areas, such as the heel. Arch treatment corrects problems such as fallen arches or arch sprains to allow better support of foot structures and relief from arch pain. Arch problems may derive from inherent structural issues of the foot, or they can be caused by injuries or medical disorders.
Benefits of Arch Treatment
Effective arch treatment can provide a number of benefits for patients:
- Reduced pain to allow patients to engage in their normal activities more comfortably
- Greater ability to enjoy exercise and sports to maintain overall health
- Greater ability to enjoy social activities with friends and family
- Increased stamina and relief from pain to allow better effectiveness at work
- Better overall foot condition and function as you age
Types of Arch Treatment
Professional treatment can address a number of common arch pain causes:
- Plantar Fibromatosis –causes nodules on the bottom of the foot that often respond well to non-invasive treatments, such as corticosteroid injection, orthotics, and physical therapy.
- Navicular Stress Fracture – a very common foot problem that occurs as a result of athletic activities. Splints, casts or surgery may be required to aid in the healing of the bone.
- Flatfoot – occurs when the entire sole touches the ground on a flat surface. A number of treatment options are available to help flat feet and related problems.
- Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction – the posterior tibial tendon of the upper foot can become inflamed or torn, which can lead to chronic pain. A number of treatments are available, and surgery may be performed to repair severe cases.
