Fallen arches and inflammation
My podiatrist has diagnosed pain and burning on bottoms of my feet as fallen arches and inflammation due to wearing shoes with poor support and my age of 79 years. I am wearing sturdy, lace-up shoes with an orthotic insert and, at home, rolling a frozen bottle of water over the floor with my foot to decrease inflammation. Two applications of ice has not improved the burning redness. What is the actual medical term for fallen arches and should I get a second opinion for my condition?
