Plantar Fasciitis Flat Feet

There’s long been a debate among the medical community about what exactly causes plantar fasciitis.  Some medical professionals point the finger at high arches, while others go totally the other way and say it’s because of flat feet.  So which is the cause of plantar fasciitis pain, high arches or flat feet?

Simply put, the problem lies with the doctors themselves.  It’s not uncommon for a medical doctor, physiotherapist or even podiatrist to point the finger at “your high arches”, and you could literally walk down the street to another professional and they will say exactly the opposite, “You’ve got flat feet”.

So one has to ask, why does it seem that doctors are always contradicting each other?  How can sufferers ever learn how to treat plantar fasciitis successfully so the pain is gone for good?

The answer is that both high arches and flat feet can cause the pain associated with plantar fasciitis.  So the lesson here is that you can suffer from plantar fasciitis if you have high arches or even if you have flat feet.  If you have too high of an arch in your foot
the fascia does not stretch enough and may draw too much force to fast.  As a result the fascia becomes inflamed and irritated over time.

So what should you do if you have flat feet and plantar fasciitis?  What other plantar fasciitis symptoms should you be aware of?

To be straight up front with you, one former plantar fasciitis to another,  plantar fasciitis will not go away without an effective plan of attack.  How many times have you ever thought to yourself, “my feet must be taking a beating” or “I need to take better care of my feet?”

I’m willing to bet the only time is has ever crossed your mind is when you slowed down to take a rest and your feet started throbbing, right? We pretty much ignore them and expect them to get us from point A to B, everyday without thought or hesitation. If we do work them a little harder than usual we expect them to heal and be ready to go the next day.

If you’ve tried taking a break from the activities that caused your plantar fasciitis and it’s done nothing to stop the pain, then it’s time to go that extra step but…

You don’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars of your hard earned cash on doctors or podiatrists visits.  You don’t have to waste your money on custom orthotic shoes or inserts.  Forget getting painful cortisone injections in your feet.  No need to spend a small fortune on custom shoe inserts or insoles either!
