Heel and Arch pain.

Pain in the heel or arch of the foot is what the Peninsula Foot clinic team help people with every day.

Heel pain may be a sudden or more gradual onset and can vary from first step pain in the morning to achy feet by the end of the day.

The arch of the foot is a complex structure of bones, ligaments, joints and muscles.

Much like the span of a bridge the arch supports our body weight as we land and move across the ground, assisting with shock absorption.

Poor foot posture, inadequate support in shoes and other stresses of Sport or daily living can contribute to pain in the heel and arch of the foot- stopping you from leading an active life!
