Calf is achey. History of sciatica. The arch of foot seems to be collapsing with weigh. A little tender to touch. No swelling, heat, or redness. Cause?

Calf is achey. History of sciatica. The arch of foot seems to be collapsing with weigh. A little tender to touch. No swelling, heat, or redness. Cause?

Its All Related: Back is related to how the arch fell in your foot resulting in knee joints changing position that results in hip issues then translating to stress in your spine resulting in pieced nerves causing your sciatica. That's said, likely improving your arch with support/orthotic will help reduce the back pain. Remember this will not happen overnight but will take time and your feet will hurt initially. ...Read more

I have a foot contusion, the foot was rolled badly on the arch, it was 1 month ago and it still has swelling around/on arch. How long should it take?

I have a foot contusion, the foot was rolled badly on the arch, it was 1 month ago and it still has swelling around/on arch. How long should it take?

Many weeks: Foot contusions can take 6-8 weeks to get better. The length of time also depends on your ability to stay off it and let it rest. It takes much longer if you continue to walk on it and reinjure it while it is trying to heal. You may also have an occult fracture that would benefit from a cast -- see your doctor for a re-examination. A repeat xray or MRI will tell if a more serious problem. ...Read more

Plantar fascia tear: This may represent a tear of the plantar fascia and/or one of the adjacent soft tissues. A fracture is less likely.
