Running Pain Outside Arch
I have pain in my ankle bone down to the arch area. I'm running regularly, what could be the likely cause? Thanks.
Tendonitis: The tibialis posterior tendon is a large tendon that runs the course from the inside of the ankle into the bump of bone in the mid arch. Overuse of this tendon can cause pain and inflammation. Underlying flat foot structure is a big predisposing factor as is overtraining and poor shoegear. Additional arch supports, new shoes and nsaids are helpful. Dont wait on this, if not resolving see dr soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a pain near the ball of my foot in my arch. Recently lost 80 lbs through diet and excercise, started running then pain happened?
Plantar fascitiis: Could be the diagnosis. I would recommend you try an over the counter orthotic and ice the foot and see how that works out for you. Ball of foot is not the most precise descriptor so a neuroma would be added into the mix but i would recommend the same treatment for you as a starting point. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A trial of inserts could be helpful. Are you overtraining? What about your stride length? Too many hills? ...Read more
Yes: Running barefoot is a fairly new fad.Change in activity, should be done gradually.When going from a good supportive shoe to no shoes, different muscle groups are worked and bone and ligaments are stressed differently.This can lead to overuse and breakdown(injury). If you are going to try barefoot or minimalist shoes, start with kicking around in them for few days, then short walks to running.Dr l. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My podiatrist said my ankle pain could deal with tendons and told me to get arch supports. Do I have to wear them all the time or just while running?
Popping in arch for a while, recently elevated to moderate pain when running. NOT PF. Feels Joint/skeletal based. Any cause besides stress frac.?
Foot pain: While this certainly could be a stress fracture, it could be from ill fitting shoes, a deep bruise, tendon injury, or poor support for your arch when running. I suggest you see a podiatrist of an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in feet for an evaluation. Bring your running shoes with you to your visit. It may be as simple as an orthotic to solve your problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

ACL recon: 22 year old lady s/p ACL reconstruction. What method did your surgeon use? Patellar tendon, Achilles allograft, hamstring?
