I'm Kitty, I'm a teenager, and I love going barefoot. I started last summer and a few days later noticed pain on the inside of my ankle. I got it checked out several months later and was told that my arches were falling and I needed to wear orthodics 24-7.
I've since been doing physical therapy for about a month and, when I'm wearing the orthodics, the pain is gone. However, my dream is to spend long periods of time doing vigorous physical activity barefoot, and as of now, whenever I do anything barefoot, the pain comes back quickly.
Is there anything I can do to get rid of the pain and strengthen my feet? Any suggestions are deeply appreciated.
