However, this does not mean that you should not invest on the right equipments while at it. In fact, it pays to buy and use the most comfortable walking shoes.

Normally, one may take three to four months to recover from such injuries. However, complications can arise if the patient doesn’t follow the necessary precautions during the recovery period. Though surgery is rarely performed since certain risks are involved and other treatment options are quite effective, doctors might resort to the surgical option in cases where the symptoms have persisted for more than nine months and other treatments are not really working. Besides anesthesia-related complications, there is also the increased risk of the patient developing flat foot deformity in event of over-release of the fascia. The patient might even suffer from an infection or a nerve injury.

Take your time in making sure that the shoe fits comfortably. Seek the assistance of the salesperson in accurately measuring the width and length of your feet Some peoples feet do not have the same size. So if one of your feet is larger than the other, get the pair shoes that fit your larger foot Your feet should wiggle room in your shoes, so make sure that the shoes are wide enough. The fit should be snug, not tight. It is a must for you to walk in the shoes before buying them. Walk around the store, so you can feel if the shoes are comfortable.

If you have a very high arch then you may want a shoe with superior cushioning. High arched runners will tend to fall into the normal or supinator category. In running supination means that your foot is rolling to the outside as opposed to a more normal roll to the inside. High arches tend to result in more impact shock traveling up the leg as opposed to being absorbed by the foot so this is why you will want a cushioned shoe with no added stability or motion control features. Always go to a shoe store at the later part of the day, as feet tend to expand a little.

An excessive high arch, also known as Pes Cavus, literally translates in Latin to a “hollow foot”. A cavus foot type is less common that the flat foot type, with about 10% of the population having this foot type. Despite the rarity, people that have this foot type can have just as many symptoms in the foot and ankle as people with flat feet. Flat foot, the opposite of high arch, often is misidentified as fallen arches or broken arches. Actually a flat foot is a structural abnormality in which the foot bones maintain a low angle, thereby giving a appearance of an absent or low arch area.
