I’ve got a spiky plastic ball that’s golf ball sized and that helps my pf 😊 Like some other posters I buy off-the-peg orthotics from shoewawa and they are just as good as my custom made pair. You do have to replace them regularly though as they flatten down over time but it costs a lot less than buying new pair of shoes everytime.
Mine is £25 an hour and she generally has discounts for block bookings. She’s ace-going to a PT opened up all sorts of stuff I hadn’t really considered exercise wise (I hate classes and I find yoga and pilates beyond dull) like boxing and tons of exercises that don’t need equipment and can be done anywhere. I had an initial block and then…[Read more]
Iv been suffering from plantar fasciitis for quite a while now. Fitness definitely helped me-doc said to work glutes and thigh muscles, I’ve been seeing a PT and doing some boxing since (and changed my car which wasn’t an intentional intervention but it was my right foot and I commute). I get the occasional twinge-mostly if I have been walking in…[Read more]
So I thought a swim last night would be a good idea.
I went on the basis that if it hurt I’d get straight out even if I just did 1 length. Actually it felt really nice and I had a very gentle relaxing swim.
Everything else has loosened up nicely but my knee isn’t thanking me for it today, even though it didn’t hurt at all yesterday?!
I will play…[Read more]
Pain is at the back of my knee and to the right/outside when going downhill/stairs. In general it’s a bit sore all over now, if it seizes up a bit, when I try to stretch it, initially it’s a bit like cramp or like something is going to snap if I try to extend my leg fully.
Frozen peas is a good shout – I keep intending to buy some but then end up…[Read more]
I did the 3 peaks challenge on Saturday.
Got up Ben Nevis fine, went to come back down and had a shooting pain in my knee. Totally unexpected and no reason for it that I could tell. Had the same issue with the next 2 mountains, romped up them and crawled down. I could however walk down the steps backwards fine?!
Now it’s just sore unless I keep it…[Read more]
I started getting something awful on one foot this winter, the skin sloughed off and the Boots pharmacist thought I had scalded my foot, but the treatment made it worse. The NHS Minor Injuries Dr said it was athlete’s foot, but it was a shed load of skin coming away.
They gave me antibiotics, antifungal cream, and steroid cream. It did not do a…[Read more]
@martin Since my teens I’ve what can only really be described as tender feet. They bruise easily for want of a better description, I get quite a bit of toe joint pain including occasional toe and ankle gout flare ups, heels especially get very sore from standing or walking too much on hard ground. I can’t stand much pressure on the tendons (heel…[Read more]
I’ve had it on and off over the years, mostly it was triggered from running. Stretching calves helps. Pain killers help. Soft soled shoes/trainers or insoles in sturdier shoes/boots. Never bothered with anything fancy, cheepy shop-bought 1/4″ gell/foam insoles without much structure were plenty to take the edge off it even when it was bad.
