The flexible tissue that forms your arch is composed of three distinct arch sections, one transverse and two longitudinal. This tissue is quite strong but the daily stress and pressure of walking, working, and exercising takes its toll. Small tears and stretching of the arch tissue can lead to a painful condition called plantar fasciitis that can also lead to the development of heel spurs.
Your arches are interconnected with many other components that can radiate pain to the arch, so see your foot doctor for the correct diagnosis..
