When we're on our feet, our arches are the primary structures, of our bodies, that absorb and return force. When this support structure is altered, pain and injury may result. There are many causes of arch pain. Direct force trauma, ligament sprains, muscle strains, poor biomechanical alignment,stress fractures, overuse, inflammatory arthritis, or... the tightness or lack of tightness of the joints in the foot may all cause pain in the arch.

Injury to the plantar fascia is a common cause of arch pain. The plantar fascia is the thick, connective tissue which supports the arch on the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel bone to the toes. In addition, Sprain, strain, bruises, and fractures can cause stress to the arch resulting in pain. There is also a genetic component when it comes to arch pain.
