Foot arch pain from running. Who is best to see? Podiatrist, Physio, Chiro or Other? This is a reoccurring injury - knee related I think :(
Which type of doctor should I see? I have an inflammed nerve in my right hip/buttocks area for the last week. It started after a 5 mile run. It now is painfull all the time and twitching, and today I have numbness in my right foot for the first time.
It : It is possible that you are experiencing piriformis syndrome from your run. The muscle is deep in the butt cheek and lies over the sciatic nerve.You should be seen to rule out other things but a quick test is to lie down on your back, bend your right leg up so the heel is close to the butt and pull the right knee to your left side.

If you had a ruptured disk straight leg raising would hurt. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is my leg cast too tight? I fractured my fibula and tore a ligament near my ankle. Yesterday my doctor repositioned my foot/ bone in preparation to be casted. I didn't experience much pain or discomfort once the cast was set but today I am experiencing a
It : It is very important to keep your leg elevated above the level of your heart to prevent swelling after a reduction and casting since the cast is circumferential and if your foot swells it may cut off circulation. I would keep it elevated and apply ice and if the pain and swelling does not subside or if it worsens i would go to the nearest er and have the cast split or removed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
