Foot arch pain
Pain under the foot is also described as pain on the bottom of the foot or sole of foot pain. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of pain in the arch of the foot. This can occur gradually and may start with tightness around the area. Sometimes a change in floor surface (especially hard surfaces) or having no support of the arch can bring on pain in this area. A sore foot arch is often worse first thing in the morning and eases as the day goes on. Foot arch pain can also be due to inappropriate footwear or a surface issue where overload as occurred and is common in sport.
