Question by Natalie: Pain at middle area on the bottom of the foot?
Today I somehow injured myself (not sure how it happened), and now I have pain on the bottom of my foot. (I think that the pain is near the plantar fascia area, at the bottom middle-part of my foot.)
Sometimes it hurts for me to walk, and I can’t run very well without experiencing pain. It doesn’t feel extremely painful; it’s more like a sharp sting. (a little itchy, too) Does anyone know what this foot pain is called? How can I treat it?
I’m 14, if that helps. Thank you.

You have a muscle under your foot that can have pain because of how you stepped on something. Here is how you can release that muscle to get rid of the foot pain:
With your foot in your lap place your fingers side by side at the back of the arch right in front of the heel and press in hard and hold. After 30 seconds slowly raise your toes up as far as you can, release the pressure but hold your toes there for another 30 seconds.
