Could the pain in my arches be caused by tight calves?

Asked 3 years ago

I exercise most mornings, but I usually am too busy to stretch properly afterward. Recently, there has been this throbbing pain and sometimes tingling feeling in the arches of my feet. I am wondering if this could potentially be caused by tightness in my calves?

Tight calves will pull on the Achilles tendon of your feet, forcing your heel to go up, and overloading your forefoot, knee, hip and lower back. The overloading of these joints will cause pain in your arches. Stretching your calf muscles regularly is good practice to avoid the throbbing pain.

Tight calves strain the Achilles tendon near its insertion into the heel, causing arch and foot pain. Consequently, the downward tension overloads the ankle joint, forcing it up during movement. The downward pressure then strains the tight calves further. Practice stretching exercises regularly to relieve the calf tightness.
