Inner heel discomfort is caused by a compression of a nerve branch, which can occur when a nerve is forced against a bone, ligament, or other connective tissue. Medial longitudinal arch entrapment can affect sole feeling. It is also known as Jogger’s Foot. Doral Health & Wellness provides round-the-clock Podiatrist Brownsville access. Podiatrists are medical and surgical specialists that treat problems with the lower extremities, including the feet and ankles. They assess patients, make diagnoses, and execute surgeries on those suffering from lower limb injuries.
When does one contract Jogger’s Foot?
Jogger’s foot is common among runners who regularly engage in long-distance running training and competition, including those who compete in marathons, ultramarathons, and Iron Man competitions. As the horizontal arch of the foot protects the runner from shock, an athlete with foot problems is rather likely to get this injury. An uncommon manifestation of this has been observed in ballet dancers.
What are the typical Symptoms & Signs of this injury?
- A sensation of weakness in the ankle
- Sensations of pins and needles, loss of feeling, or burning that start in the ball of the foot and spread to the first (large) and, frequently, second toes
- Arch pain and discomfort that is worse by jogging or standing on the affected foot’s toes
- Symptoms that are exacerbated by, and sometimes limited to, flat-ground running
What causes this injury?
The surrounding connective tissue that resembles ligaments has the potential to compress the middle nerve at the sole of the foot, which is found in the foot’s arch and the ankle.
What are the possible dangers?
- Repeated ankle sprains
- Symptoms such as foot joint looseness, flat feet, or a stiff big toe (hallux rigidus)
- Sports where running is a significant component, especially at long distances
- Contemporary, highly arched arch supports
- Shoe problems can be caused by direct pressure on a nerve, which can occur with poorly fitted shoes, thin soles, a lack of shock absorption, or the addition of arch supports (orthotics)
- Diseases and conditions such as diabetes and thyroid problems
What are the potential problems?
- Foot and toe numbness that won’t go away
- Constant foot or ankle pain
- Constant pain prevents you from competing.
What are the safety precautions?
Keep up with regular conditioning:
- Mobility in the foot and ankle to prevent postural imbalances
- Heart health and fitness
- Having a lot of muscle strength and stamina
- Make sure your footwear and orthotics are a good fit
- Preventing foot injuries and nerve-pulling injuries may be aided by taping, supportive strapping, and wearing a brace, or high-top tennis shoes.
