Shin feels like stretching rubber band when moving ankle. Hit with hard ball. Att tendinitis?

Shin feels like stretching rubber band when moving ankle. Hit with hard ball. Att tendinitis?

Not achilles.: Sounds like a good bruise from getting hit wiith the hardball. There is little tissue covering the tibia so not much protection there from injury. Ice followed by heat would be a good way of clearing this up. ...Read more

Yes: Should be fine since boots have more depth. Just make sure liner is flat and does not tilt orthotics. Try it out and see if they feel any different compared to shoes without liners. If unsure consult with your doctor. ...Read more

Extremely painful tibialis sheen on long or fast walk. I already wear custom orthoses with arch sup &metatarsal pad for flat foot and metatarsal pain?

Extremely painful tibialis sheen on long or fast walk. I already wear custom orthoses with arch sup &metatarsal pad for flat foot and metatarsal pain?

CLARIFICATION: "Tibialis sheen?" Do you mean tib. posterior or tib. anterior? I will speak to the tibialis posterior tendon. If this is your diagnosed problem, I always utIlize an MRI to look at the tendon. Then, orthoses, bracing, or a cast can be tried depending upon the integrity of the tendon. Therapy is another option. If all these fail, surgery can be discussed. I have pretty good success with a brace. ...Read more

I have plantar fasciitis and spur at ball of my foot. New orthotics have an arch and I walk flat footed. Foot feels bruised. Try to adapt? Damaging?

I have plantar fasciitis and spur at ball of my foot. New orthotics have an arch and I walk flat footed. Foot feels bruised. Try to adapt? Damaging?

Give it time: If you have just started wearing the orthotics, your foot may just need more time. Just like anything new, start slowly. Meaning, wear the orthotics in short durations and build from there. If the foot does not come around quickly, see a doctor to check the fit of the orthotic. ...Read more

I have over-pronation & use orthotic. Told heel counter in shoe should hold foot snugly. Foot heel does ride up, how much too much?

I have over-pronation & use orthotic. Told heel counter in shoe should hold foot snugly. Foot heel does ride up, how much too much?

Shoe counter: It may well be impossible to find an otc shoe that fits that well . If there is a lot of room move to a narrower shoe and remove the inner liner of the shoe as well to allow the orthotic to fit better. You may need some additions to the counter area of the shoe (inside) as well to promote fit. Good luck. ...Read more

Why does walking barefoot on hard surface hurt so bad with plantar fasciitis?

Why does walking barefoot on hard surface hurt so bad with plantar fasciitis?

A couple of reasons : It overstresses the fascia. PF involves inflammation, degeneration and/or microtears in the fascia. Barefoot walking both loads and stretches the damaged fascia. I preach to patients with PF, "good footwear at all times!" ...Read more

1-must wear straight shoe lasts for overpronation & flat feet? 2-can sneakers have mesh and leather tops?

??: Not so much a straight last as much as a last of some kind / cheaper shoes may look ok but if you can bend the shoe easily at the heel-forefoot junction then this is not a good shoe for you a good shoe with a last coupled with a good otc or custom made orthotic is the ticket as long as the construction is of reasonable quality what the upper is made from is not too much of an issue. ...Read more

What's better for the foot? Sneakers, sandals, running shoes?

What's better for the foot? Sneakers, sandals, running shoes?

All can be fine: This is hard to answer. It depends on the quality of the shoe, how well it fits the shape of your foot and, most importantly, how well it feels. As a rule, the thicker the sole, the stiffer the shoe, the better the support, the better the shoe is for you. It does mean that other shoes are bad. Using generalities, my best answer to your question, would be a good running shoe. Dr l. ...Read more
