    Hello and thank you for your question. Without examining your feet it is difficult for me to say exactly however I would start with general foot mobilization. Our plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot, which if tight can start to cause heel pain, arch pain or ball of foot pain. Release the foot by rolling the foot on a golf ball or RAD Roller (www.radroller.com) 10 minutes every night. Follow this with 30 minutes of Correct Toes (www.correcttoes.com). If your feet also itch then I would consider the possibility of a fungal infection. For this you can use tea tree oil topically on the foot every day for up to 2 months. If your pain or itching do not improve then I would see a Podiatrist in person for a more thorough evaluation. I hope this helps!
