Debilitating pain in the heel, in the ball of foot, in the high arch, in the arch of foot and foot pain come from causes such as stress on the heel, age-related loss of resiliency in the ligaments, wearing incorrect shoes, some form of arthritis like ankylosing spondylitis of Reiter’s syndrome and tendency of the foot to roll inward (pronation) upon walking. Diagnosis is made by taking into consideration a patient’s medical history and physical activity and foot pain symptoms.
