I have been diagnosed with tenosynovitis of the flexor hallucis longus, with a very painful L under arch of foot, making it painful to walk, let alone run. Caused by repetitive plantar flexion from running and climbing, and probs old and dodgy trainers.
I just wanted some advice from anyone who has had this in the past, I wanted to know what worked best for them, what treatments they used and how long the recovery took for them.....??????
I also wanted to know what cross training you have been able to do, as even walking, weight bearing is painful????? Swimming is ok, but pushing off from the side aggravates it.
So far I've
Got new trainers - Which I'm wearing to walk in at work
Am wearing new insole in other shoes
Anti Inflamms - As pain is increasing throughout the day - As am walking around on it at work
Have strapped the foot (Mid arch support)
2 x Ultrasound
Little bit of friction
Helpppppppp! Just wanna idea of how long I'm gonna be off running, as want to train for my marathon and ultra - Which I'm running in Sep.
