Re: pain in the arch

I do a lot of running along the hike and bike trail here in Austin,Texas. I have flat feet. I've tried inserts and cushions but I seem to always have the same problem which is I'll tear the achilles tendon. Should I wear arch supports or a support for my achilles tendon?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
