ARCH AND HEEL PAIN
Pain across the bottom of the foot at any point between the heel and the ball of the foot is referred to as arch pain.
Most arch pain is due to strain or inflammation of a long ligament on the bottom of the foot.
Arch pain develops from overuse, unsupportive shoes, weight gain or injury. If you experience arch pain, schedule an appointment with Dr. J. Leonard Knudson - a Culver City Foot Doctor for treatment to prevent the condition from becoming worse.
Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present.
Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as :
a stress fracture
Because there are several potential causes, it is important to have heel pain properly diagnosed by a Foot and Ankle Surgeon. Dr. J. Leonard Knudson is a Foot and Ankle Surgeon located in Culver City and near West Los Angeles that is able to determine the underlying source of your heel pain.
