    Arch Pain

    What is it?

    Arch pain is common in people with a typical structural problem known as flat feet. Arch pain may also occur in people with fallen arches (a fallen arch is one that has collapsed due to bearing weight).

    Flat feet can lead to extreme stress or inflammation of the plantar fascia, possibly causing severe discomfort and leading to other foot problems. Without properly supported arches, simple movement can pull your body out of alignment and cause stress, strain and fatigue to your lower body.

    Do I have it?

    You may have arch pain if you feel pain in your arch and/or fatigue in your arch, heel, knee, leg or lower back.

    What causes it?

    Flat feet are often hereditary. Arch pain may also be caused by wearing shoes with inadequate support, standing or walking for long periods of time in high heels, or overuse of the feet during work or sports. Being overweight also places additional stress on the feet, especially the arches.

    How can I help prevent it?

    • Maintain a healthy weight
    • Use insoles to support your arches
    • Limit how often you wear high heels
    • Use proper shoes, especially when exercising to evenly distribute weight through your foot

    Not medical advice, see a doctor if problems persist.

    Lower Back Pain

    What is it?

    Pain in the area surrounding the lumbar region of the lower back.

    What causes it?

    Many medical conditions can cause back pain. However, lower back pain can occur after spending long periods of time on your feet, from being overweight, having improper posture (standing or sitting), from quick or straining moves of the lower back, or having improperly cushioned and supported feet.

    For some, the combination of stress and strain placed on the lower back during walking and running, especially without proper support for your feet, coupled with the shock that can travel up the legs to the lumbar region can aggravate and strain the muscles responsible for supporting the back and as a result cause pain.

    How can I help prevent it?

    For lower back pain caused by being on your feet all day:

    • Maintain a healthy weight and strengthen the back and stomach muscles
    • Wear shoes that fit properly and provide adequate support
    • Use insoles or inserts that provide a combination of shock absorption, cushioning and support for your feet

    Not medical advice, see a doctor if problems persist.
