Can Supination Of Foot Cause Si Joint
Physio says SI joint pain can cause nerve pain down leg and be reason for my pins n needles it foot, doc says pain doesn't go below knee, who's right?
Injured back 9 months ago. Why does my right si joint pop sometimes when I raise one of my legs or if I squeeze my feet together?
SI joint popping:
When patients come in stating this I tell them not to worry about it. Popping isn't a bad thing; chiropractors make a living popping joints. :)
if that pop is associated with pain, that's when you have to worry and do something about it. Pt and a si joint strap may help if that's the situation. ...Read more
I have Si joint imflamation or piriformis sydrome, lately I have pins n needles in left foot no leg pain just a bit of si pain, could this be related?
Yes: The sacro-iliac (si) joint in the back is located near the roots to the nerves that supply the lower extremity - any swelling in the area can cause irritation/impingement of the roots which control sensory (what you feel), motor (how you move) and autonomic (things that are automatic like swelling) nerves...Talk to your pcp who may refer you to a back specialist. ...Read more

Hi I have Si joint pain or piriformis, sharp pain in back, stabbing pain in thigh and calf it doesn't travel. Now stabbing pain in front ankle, related?
In my experience, "SI joint" and "Piriformis" syndromes are commonly over-diagnosed by mistake.
Instead, I do see a lot of cases of sciatica from degenerate discs and pinched nerves in the lumbar spine. From your description, I wonder if you might have a pinched L5 nerve in your lumbar spine.

For 3+ weeks I have had pain in the top center of my foot. Feels like a joint- when I bend my toes it hurts the most. No injury caused it. Why?
I get hot, and I also get tingly sensation in my feet and other joints. These symptoms do not happen at my apartment. What can be the cause?

Arthritis. If you are a smoker, diabetic, have high cholesterol you may want to talk to your doctor about getting your circulation checked. Sometimes other issues such as with the thyroid or nerve related issues from the spine (herniated discs, sciatica) can cause these to develop.

Have your leg lengths checked and use a heel lift/orthotic for correction to see if your pain improves. ...Read more
What causes ur body to b stiff specifically after a workout? Why would my joints crack so much when I workout? Knee/ foot/ankle painful after wo.
Exercise...especially without the proper "stretching" og our muscles prior to the exercise we "break" microscopic blood vessels and they bleed a very very small amount of blood! This is like an INTERNAL bruise!!! We call it a "charliehorse" or STIFFNESS!
Your joints are YOUNG and have CARTILAGE which is LIVING TISSUE!! Same rules apply!
Hope this helps!
