Arch Pain

Arch pain is commonly experienced by middle-aged women whose feet have a tendency to overpronate or roll in. It is also commonly associated with bunions and hammer toe. The plantar plate is a thick ligament type structure with attachments which inserts into the base of our phalanges (toe bones) in the area of the ball of the foot. The plantar plate is designed to protect the head of the metatarsal from pressure and prevent overextension of our toes preventing our toes from spreading or splaying.
