Understanding Foot Pain: Causes And Treatments

Understanding Foot Pain: Causes And Treatments

Our body is a mechanical wonder and it is truly amazing how each part, from head to toe, has its own role to play. Our feet has one of the most complex mechanisms in the body. The way it works is just so intricate and fascinating! But, due to being so complex, there are a lot of things which have the potential to go wrong and cause a foot to begin to pain.

Taking into account the various troubles the foot can have, does it not make sense to learn what some of the causes are?

Sprains and strains are just so common when it comes to the causes of foot pain. That being said, there are quite a lot of people who do not really know how to tell the difference, exactly, between an injury such as this and something which is more serious. This is what causes a lot of terrible injuries to go untreated for quite some time, leading to them getting progressively worse.

While the name of the condition may be difficult, plantar fasciitis is the fancy name for a swelling up of a certain ligament and too much pressure is the reason behind it. The ligament is the one which is responsible for connecting the heel bone to the toes. When it comes to what is to be done in order to treat this sort of condition, the most important thing is to make sure the foot is rested to a sufficient extent. After all, it is too much use which got the injury to occur in the first place, right?

In addition to this, heel and foot stretches are of high importance and if the pain is very bad, pain relief medicines are to be taken, but a person should make sure that he or she does not become too reliant on these sort of medicines.

A stone bruise is something, which need not take place due to a stone, but the term does quite a good job of explaining why such an injury occurs in the first place. If a hard object is stepped on, it can cause an injury to the heel or to the ball of the foot. Again, in a case like this, it is important to rest the area. Also, applying ice to it will help it go away sooner than it normally would have.

A heel fracture may have similar causes to a stone bruise, but is more intense. Serious medical attention is required as it may not only break the heel but also cause related damage. A wheelchair or crutches are the way to go and a cast is required in most cases.

For severe back pain, generally we need to do a back examintion and if required for further investigation xray and mri might also be advised. For temporary relief you can take a pain killer.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Check your sugar levels immediately. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Consult after 5 days.

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your neck pain which means duration of pain and mode of onset. You have mentioned that your fingers get numb occasionally and you are also a diabetic. We will have to actually see whether this numbness is due to your long standing diabetes or spine issue. My advice for you will be: - to get a detailed neurological examination (both motor and sensory done for yourself) so that I can understand whether there is any compression at neck region - please send me your x rays and mri cervical spine region - you should continue with anti inflammatory medications, adequate sugar control, medications for neuropathic symptoms like pregabalin and/or gabapentin, vitamin b12 supplementation, adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation etc. Once I have investigation reports with me, I will be able to advise you in a better manner. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

The MRI of my spine revealed" Posterior annular bulge of C5-C6 intervertebral disc causing anterior thecal sac indentation with mild spinal canal compromise noted" I wish to understand what does this mean in simple terms - is it the same as neck spondylitis? Can this be permanently cured through exercises or rest?

Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Yesterday when I was playing, I feel down with my palm support on the ground. The ground was filled with small rock pieces and sand. Now my part of palm just below my index finger has swollen up and I feel the pain whenever I try to catch a ball or do anything that involves touching of that part. What to do?

To loose weight: step 1-stop taking sugar & fat e. G. Ghee/fried stuff. Step 2 take a plat of salad before meals reduce no. Of chapatti gradually. You are most probably suffering from oa of knee. Knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, in our hands. We have well equipped centers in delhi. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Surgery should be done only when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Kindly show me x rays before a final decision can be taken. You will be thoroughly investigated before surgery is under taken.

I have a back ache problem. Whenever I lift a weight load my back aches. Please tell me the solution of these problem. Is there any natural way to solve it?

Hai lybrate-user, it's due to the strain to the vertebrae you feel pain on lifting weights. Please try to bend your knees while lifting any weight. Please try to apply heat to back using hot water bag. Prefer to have a hot water bath when you have pain. Once pain get reduced, try to do backward exercise. Like laying on bed upside down, try lifting both legs without bending knee. Like that try lifting head also hands by the side of chest.

Hi, you have coccydynia which has no particular cause or it may be secondary to injury to coccyx due to fall which starts acutely. I suggest use a ring pillow which has a hole in the centre, whenever you sit, in the office or home. So coccyx doesn't come in contact. If pain becomes unbearable or prolonged local steroid infiltration to be done if it is not secondary to trauma. Medication like analgesics, vit d3, vit b12, may be given. Consult ortho surgeon.
