7 Answers | Asked by Mary Kershaw on Jul 20, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jul 20, 2013

Hi Mary, I would suggest to hold your question until you have a diagnosis. A pain in the arch can also come from problems with the posterior tibialis, and I am sure there may be many other reasons. Even though we may sometimes have hunches as to the possible cause of pain or injury, a diagnos...
