I don't know if anyone posts here anymore, but here goes: For a few months now I've been having pain in my arch when I run. It's really severe when I run, it feels like the whole arch just completely seizes up. It's just mostly lingering soreness or tightness the rest of the time. My first thought was a PF recurrence, but I don't think it's quite the same pain and traditional PF fixes aren't helping at all. I've been icing it, stretching, rolling it over a golf ball, and I've taken plenty of time off running. Nothing seems to help. I can't afford a consult with a sports doc or anything right now, so I was hoping this sounded familiar to someone.

I have had the same issue and saw a PT. He did all of the gait testing and so one, but turned out one leg is longer than the other. He gave me a heal lift and it seemed to fix it at first. Now I don't have arch problems, but get terrible shin splints. I don't know if the PT helped or hurt me. :(
