Answer

Conditions that can be associated with pain under the arch include the following:

  • Distal plantar fasciitis - The tenderness is under the midfoot, and, as opposed to proximal plantar fasciitis, dorsiflexion of the toes aggravates pain
  • Plantar fibromatosis - Painful nodules or lumps are palpable in the plantar fascia [10]
