I get foot cramps while roller skating, why?

I get foot cramps while roller skating, why?

Skates=no arch: Roller skates and bowling shoes have no support. I'm thinking you have a high arch foot. You need some decent arch supports. A podiatrist will most likely have a very affordable solution to your problem!

Toe injury: You may have a broken toe. Apply ice and take some medication for pain. If it is very swollen and painful you will need to get a Xray to evaluate for a fracture

Tape them together: If the toe is straight and you can bend it without a lot of pain then split it by taping it to the toe next to it. If the toe is crooked or very painful, go get an X-ray

Likely Quad atrophy: After an acl tear or post- surgery it is common to have atrophy of the quadriceps muscle. Building that back up is prudent as that will help prevent other injuries and anterior knee pain. If you opt for acl surgery, a stronger quad will ease recovery and rehab too.

Very possibly: Keep the area dry and use an over the counter antifungal. Also disinfect the skates with some spray and use an antifungal powder. If no improvement see your podiatrist or pediatrician.

My toes bend downwards when I stretch?

Tendons.: You have several tendons in your feet that connect to your toes, and when you stretch, you tense muscles in your leg. This likely tugs on those tendons and pull your toes down. If you're concerned or experiencing pain, see a podiatrist.

Sounds like somethin: Is in your toe. Perhaps you stepped on glass and a piece is stuck. I would see a dermatologist who can numb the skin and dig around to find what is stuck under the skin

Any chance you: Are on a statin? I would look at the medication you are taking for any possible side effects. I would also look into any vitamin or mineral deficiencies like magnesium or potassium.

Why is it so painful to stretch my Achilles tendon so that I don't walk on my tip toes?

Why is it so painful to stretch my Achilles tendon so that I don't walk on my tip toes?

You may have: An equinis deformity or contracted steer muscle group whether it be the Achilles' tendon or gastrocnemius muscle. I'm not sure if you wear high heels but high heels cause the Achilles to contract and so they are not particularly healthy for the tendon. Eccentric excercises, stretching are good, you may need the help of a physical therapist.
