I have been in pain from my right foot for years. I have no arch in my right foot at all. It happened three years ago when I broke a bone in my foot where the arch is. It causes foot, ankle and back pain, because everything is out of alignment. I wear an orthotic, but it is being repaired right now which is going to take another month. I have been having a miserable time walking. This week a physical therapist taped my arch. I didn't even know that could be done. It's a miracle, no pain! I went to Walmart and bought some KT tape in the sports department, watched a video on You Tube and re-taped my foot myself today. I am absolutely amazed at how well it works! No more pain walking. I wish I had known about this three years ago. I just used the method that wraps around the foot, not lengthwise. I also made sure I used KT tape. It doesn't irritate the skin. It costs a little bit more, but well worth it. It can stay on a few days. I was also very careful not to wrap too tightly.
