1. Looks like she has plantar fascitis (foot loses its normal arch below and becomes flatter). 2. Use 1 course of pain killers with vitamin c.3. Use shoes made for plantar fascitis that maintains the arch of the foot. 4. Tennis ball/arch stretching exercises are available on you tube and can be implemented once the pain reduces after taking medication. 5. If she is post menopausal and not on any calcium supplements / consider using calcium and vitamin d3.

My 2 year old son who is very very active, wakes up crying in the middle of night due to leg cramp. When I check, his leg (calf) muscles feel tight. It happens only at night and affects his sleep. I massage his legs with oil before putting him to bed. But it still happens every three/four days. Kindly advise. Is there any medicine for this?

If he calms down with massage, avoid medicine. Leg pain in children is also frequently described as “growing pains.” although there is no scientific proof that the growth of bones causes pain, it is well known that children sometimes experience leg pain, often at night, for no obvious reason. These nonspecific types of pain are localized to the muscles and improve when the area is massaged.

Ice. Use an ice pack or cold compress on your foot for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. This is especially beneficial at the end of a long day or when you’ve spent a lot of time on your feet. Or, roll a frozen water bottle under your foot. This method incorporates a bit of massage, relieving tightness in the bottom of your foot. Massage. Massaging the arch of your foot helps to relieve pain and promote mobility. Use your fingers and knuckles to deeply massage your foot for 1 to 5 minutes at a time. One technique is to place both thumbs at the center line of your arch and move them to the outer edges of your feet. Inserts. Use cushion inserts in your shoes for additional support and cushioning. Inexpensive options can be purchased off the shelf. Wear supportive shoes with thicker soles and extra cushioning for additional support that can help to reduce tension in the plantar fascia. Kinesiology tape can be used to improve arch and heel support. Night splints. Many people find quick and effective results by using night splints. They can be worn while sleeping to stretch the plantar fascia. They help to keep the plantar fascia relaxed and prevent you from pointing your feet down. Exercisefoot flexuse your hand to pull your toes back toward your shin. Hold this position for about 30 seconds.Do each side two to three times. Toe towel grab place a small towel under your foot. Curl your toes to grip the towel. Raise the front of your foot off the floor. Hold this position for a few seconds. Release the towel as you lift up your toes and spread them as far apart as possible. Heel and calf stretch to do this stretch: 1.Stand facing a wall. 2.Place your hands on the wall and move one foot back as far as you can comfortably. Toes on both feet should be facing forward, heels flat, with a slight bend in your knees. 3.Lean into the stretch and hold for 30 seconds.

Rest as much as possible. Apply ice to the heel for 10 to 15 minutes twice a day. Wear shoes that fit properly. Wear a night splint, a special device that stretches the foot while you sleep. Use heel lifts or shoe inserts to reduce pain. Do an x-ray of affected heel. Consult online with details.

Respected Lybrate user. Please consult physical therapist and starts physio therapy along with orthopaedic doctor medications. Regularity is mostly very important and follow - ups are important to both (orthopaedic and physio therapy). I hope you are returned to your normal life.
