Podiatry 12 years experience
See a podiatrist: A podiatrist or foot and ankle specialist will examine the foot, take x rays if necessary, and treat your foot pain.
Dr. David Hettinger
Podiatry 36 years experience
See a podiatrist...: You can take otc or prescription anti-inflammatories to decrease the discomfort of arthritis, wear cushioned insoles to decrease pressure when walking, or have a surgical procedure to potentially re-align or fuse the joints that are giving you pain. It's impossible to tell for sure without a face-to-face exam.

Dr. Michael Swor
Obstetrics and Gynecology 40 years experience
Menstrual pain: Severe pain should be evaluated by a gynecologist. Mild to moderate cramping can be relieved with NSAID meds like Ibuprofen or naproxen. Check out no-drug methods too like massage, exercise, and a new menstrual belt called ziivaa.

Several things: Start with gentle but regular aerobic exercise (walking, cycling, water exercise). Build up core strength (tummy and back muscles). Eliminate tobacco use. If such simple measures have been ineffective, consult your primary doctor or a spine physician.

How should I treat my foot pain for acro-dance?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Howard Fox
Podiatry 42 years experience
Acro dance: Can be pretty hard on the feet. If you're having pain, it might not be from the acro-dancing, but the acro-dancing brought it out. (if you were a couch potato, your feet would feel fine.) i recommend you see a podiatrist and get evaluated and find out why you're having pain, and there may be a pad or device or strapping that you can use when acro-dancing.
