Arch Pain

Pain across the bottom of the foot at any point between the heel and the ball of the foot is often referred to as arch pain. Although this description is non-specific, most arch pain is due to strain or inflammation of the plantar fascia (a long ligament on the bottom of the foot). This condition is known as plantar fasciitis and is sometimes associated with a heel spur.

There is a plethora of treatment modalities available for this pathology. If all the conservative options fail, you may benefit from surgical release. A plantar fasciotomy involves the release of the plantar fascia. Dr Ozcan uses a minimally invasive keyhole technique for the release of the plantar fascia. Surgery is often done under general anaesthesia, with immediate walking recommended. This highly successful approach has been a life saver for many chronic arch pain patients who have tried almost all the other treatment modalities.
