Got diagnosed with navicular accessory type 3 and gave me a boot but its un comfortable should i buy a better on for comfort and faster recovery?

Comfort Is Important: If you are having pain with the accessory navicular it is best to immobilize it via a CAM walker (boot) to prevent you from putting excess pressure on the area. If you are able to tolerate this that would be in your best interest. If it is still painful it would be best to get a more comfortable CAM walker or to ask your doctor about a corticosteroid injection for treatment of pain and swelling. ...Read more

Leg wound: You need to see a physician (p)to see if your non-healing leg wound is due to either a varicose vein under it, peripheral artery disease (pad) or an osteomyelitis (o). If you have a venous stasis ulcer, a venous doppler study of your leg veins may diagnose a varicose vein beneath it. If there is one, a vein ablation can help cure the wound.

Hi, i'm suffering from problems in my right heel, it occurs mainly when i put pressure on it or put on my work boots. What could be the cause of it?

Could be...: Plantar fascitis if the pains occur mainly in the heel area and even possibly the arch. It could also be generalized arthritis and a number of other possibilities. Take the insoles out of your shoes and replace them with ones that have more arch support. The one i recommend most is the spenco polysorb cross-trainer insole. If you don't need as much cushioning, the total support is also good. ...Read more
