Doctor insights on:
While jogging, how are you supposed to land your foot-flat to the ground or on the balls of your foot?
Heel to toe.: Land on your heel and roll through to the balls of your feet, then launch off from the balls of your feet. Try not to bounce, as that would make it more impactful upon the knees and ankles. Keep your stride as horizontal as possible, and drive forward off the balls of your feet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

11 mo old weighs 11 kilo and not walking yet. Can cruise mostly on tip toes but can also put his foot flat. Should u b concerned? How to stop tip toe?
Toe-walking that : Persists 3 months after walking first begins is considered atypical. Then one looks for associated language delays ;/or signs of autistic spectrum disorder (though it's not clear why toe-walking is associated with these). Ask his doctor to check muscle tone, strength ; reflexes. Does he play pat-cake, wave "bye" back, roll a ball back to you ; other imitative games? See www.Firstsigns.Org. ...Read more
What type of streches/exercises can I do to at home to stretch my 10 months old baby's Achilles tendon; ankles are very tight and never puts foot flat?
See doctor first: I would not advise doing any stretches on your baby's feet or ankles without first checking with the pediatrician, preferably a pediatric orthopedist or podiatrist. While stretching may be helpful, it can also cause problems such as subluxing joints or tearing or rupturing soft tissues (tendons, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stepped in a hole and twisted my foot. cant put pressure on my foot flat but i can walk on my heel. pain is at about a 7 at resting. Theres swelling?
Severe disruption.: Swelling is certainly a sign that something is amiss. There is a distinct possibility that you may have severely damaged your foot in mid arch area. Without an evaluation to assess the damage, it is impossible to say. Initial treatment should be using the "RICE" protocol. Rest, Ice, Compression and elevation. I suggest that you move to have an immediate examination of the injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pretty much...: We start out treating it with sympotmatically, mainly with a type of arch supports. These can be custom made orthotics, made specifically for your individual feet, by seeing a podiatrist. For otc supports, i really like spenco medical products.

After sciatica i got a knee hitting together sensation in right knee , when using any foot ware , bare foot/ very flat heel footwear is fine,?
Knee: This vague knee symptom is nonspecific and doesn't suggest entities like cartilage or ligament damage or tendonitis. The sciatic nerve travels from the buttock down the back of the leg and generally doesn't cause knee symptoms. Perhaps foot ware changes the mechanics of walking enough to produce your knee symptom. You could consult an orthopedic specialist for evaluation and advice. ...Read more
