  • Latest therapy....www.treatwithswift.com costly though. alternative, Faulkner needling...to stim te immune sustem  or electro surgical removal....radical, but successful . But the wound healing becomes an issue. 
  • Indeed rather see a foot specialist like a Podiatrist who also knows manual therapy .
  • When it comes to knee.....you may need to look from the bottom up...via a Podiatrist, or hip down via a Physio who understands pelvic function. 
  • Quadratus Plantae referral trigger point, can give an generalised heel pain, and the Flexor Digitorum Brevis can contribute to the arch pain.  Gonand see a Podiatrist who has an interest on biomechanics and acupuncture. 
  • Can I ask,  is this a one sided foot problem? how would you describe your foot strike what shoes are you wearing  how would you describe your arch profile is this your 1st pain, any previous injuries. do you have a good flexibility routine  have you…
  • Ok, time to see a Podiatrist. To check your gait.
  • Personally, I'd regard a piece of toast, poor nourishment.  Try eating food that has vitality and less processing.  Supplements are tricky, as a lot of the products out there do not deliver what they propose to. Cheaper products are a waste of money…
  • I did a 30 day challenge once, to run at least one mile a day. i admit it was e catalyst to get me back into running. No knee issues though. i think if you want to start something, get yourself analysed for potential issues.
  • With all due respects to running stores. Who utilise youngsters barely out of school to take a look at you running on a treadmill.  Please don't tell me that you value that opinion as the be all that ends all.  There is a lot more to foot function t…
  • Ankle joint mobs can be done by a Podiatrist trained in soft tissue work and mobilisation.  Physios should be able to do this as well. Although the techniques may vary.  The NMES is a device which we use a lot in clinic as part of our rehab protocol…
  • It's all in your history.  A one sided foot problem, indicated assay entry in your gait, possible caused buy a functional leg length discrepancy. why don't you go and see a osteopath, physio or chiropractor. 
  • Get a review Mac
  • There is always a fundamental reason why this condition happens.  It is a multi faceted problem. but when linked to outside of foot pain, that points towards 4th and 5th metatarsal cuboid joint pain.  In order to get is pain, the foot has to be fun…
  • It sounds like there is a combination of stresses at play. to me the medial collateral ligament and now this pain have something in common.  Adult acquired flat feet.  The deep posterior tibialus may be taking a lot of load. you need to review your…
  • Podiatrists are foot experts, that's what all their training is about.  But some do not specialise in Biomechanics and sports injuries.  So find one 
  • Compex NMES may be useful in conditioning the muscles around the ankle to help auto-support. Foot mobilisation, and soft tissue work can help foot alignment and proprioceptive feedback from the foot. 
  • Certainly sounds like Sesamoiditis.  This needs to be dealt with as it can stop you in your tracks.  Look for a sports Podiatrist who can assess the forces involved in the creation of the condition.  Have you changed your footstrike ? do you have a …
  • Emma hi, the physio, has to have enough sense to know when our interventions are necessary.  Go with the program 
  • An orthotic, can be outdated, and not doing what it is meant to.  And your feet may need further treatment, like joint mobilisation, soft tissue work, and streategic fact that you have bunions, already tells me a lot about what is gong wrong in term…
  • Knees are inbetweeners. The source of the stress on the tendon may be from the foot up, or the hip down or both.  You may need a gait analysis to check features of your foot function and a pelvic check to see if the pelvis is twisted leading to a f…
  • Ask the physio t issue you with an orthotic, there are cheaper off the shelf devices that can help. But you may need a custom one. If so see a Podiatrist. Our approach   would be focussing hard on calf flexibity and deep tissue work on the leg. Ank…
  • We deal with this condition a lot in our clinic.  Its is a complex problem in that ere are multiple factors involved.  1) flexibility routines are important, however there are a number of techniques that may work better than others.  2) foot functio…
  • Friebergs is a growth plate injury in Young people up to the age of 15-16. similar to Severs disease. there are always fundamental reasons why this will happen.  You you should have your Biomechanics looked at to find out why there are unreasonabl…
  • Gait and foot posture can change,  you may need to focus on cross training to deal with muscles like quads and gluts. These muscles become deficient over time in runners. Which can then contribute to knee trouble and worsen pronation.  AP shoes are …
  • Posterior Compartment syndrome is a possibility. 
  • Look up a good stretching regime, and stick to it. Pre-run warm ups and post run warm downs even with short runs. Get into the habit. there is a chance  arches sagging, as a consequence of too much weight. Perhaps a combination of a supportive shoe…
  • Ball of foot area, may be a sesamoiditis. see as above 
  • A one sided problem will always point towards asymmetry. The osteo picked up a twist. Probably mobilised the pelvis, and massaged the glut.  Normally this may help, but it seems your glut med has progressed into a tendinosis. the tendinous junct…
  • i see this type of 'diagnosis ' everyday. with all due respects to running shops. There is more to biomechanics than looking at someone running on a treadmill.  remember their primary focus is to sell a shoe, that attempts to help, improve your …
  • An you've been told you are a Neutral runner bu whom. and what does that actually mean, in the context of an injury? i would not accept that being a Neutral runner means anything at all.   Shoe shop diagnosis in no diagnosis at all.  There…
