Foot injuries yoga

Common Questions and Answers about Foot injuries yoga


Avatar f tn Ever since I was placed on Aceon 4mg/day for HT, I seem to accumulate injuries and I have trouble with muscle weakness. In the past 3 years, I sustained a grade 3 AC joint separation (left shoulder), torn meniscus (left knee) and now I have trouble with very severe plantar fasciitis in my left foot. This really limits my exercise options, because I cannot even walk for more than a km before my PF becomes too painful, despite prescription orthotics.
Avatar n tn A few days ago I had a sensation of the floor vibrating under one foot. Since then I have realized it is my foot. It is felt in bloth feet, one at a time. Never both at the same time. I feel it when I am standing r walking. It is like an intermittent buzzing sensation. It comes in short bursts on after the other then stops. It will happen when walking and I will feel it with every third or fourth step. What could be the cause?
Avatar n tn Hi there, I'm 21 and have experienced swelling in my right foot for the last 2 1/2 years. For me, it was following a few very painful injuries on the foot (girl trod on me with heels etc) and an intensive ballet show. I have seen orthopaedic doctors, physios, had MRIs etc etc. Eventually I saw a vascular surgeon this year and he thought it was lymphedema due to the trauma and prescribed me compression stockings to wear every day.
Avatar m tn The latter can be walking, sit-ups, push-ups, aerobic, and yoga like stretches. As far as your foot tingling, without seeing the results of medical evaluation it is difficult to say the cause.
Avatar n tn When I go to bed at night - I still feel the vertigo sometimes and I told my husband. I am also a crazy runner and have hip injuries/IT band issues. I sit with my right leg crossed over my left..all the time. My foot feels like it is sleeping but not pins and needles. I came home today and my husband is sitting obsessing that I have multiple sclerosis and has been telling me this over and over and that now, I am worried. I think it is ridiculous.
Avatar m tn Those who added a 60-minute routine twice a week improved their arthritis symptoms by 7 percent, and even better, reported noted psychological benefits such as an increased sense of well-being. Yoga Much like tai chi, yoga will stretch and relieve tension throughout your entire body, says Sari Harrar, author of Relief At Last!. The slow, controlled movements of yoga give you the exercise you need to stay fit and nimble while also helping you build muscle for a stronger structural foundation.
Avatar n tn Hello Dr. Simran, Thanks so much for the reply. I don't have any spinal injuries at all. It's really very strange. The last thing that happened was a broken metatarsal on my left foot about 12 weeks ago from dancing. Then the other day, after I woke up in the morning my entire left arm was asleep. That was no problem getting the feeling back...very normal. As of yesterday, all that happened was that I woke up from a very short nap and my left shin had no feeling.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Practiced regularly, it can also strengthen the relaxation response in your daily life. Since injuries can happen when yoga is practiced incorrectly, it’s best to learn by attending group classes, hiring a private teacher, or at least following video instructions. What type of yoga is best for stress? Although almost all yoga classes end in a relaxation pose, classes that emphasize slow, steady movement, deep breathing, and gentle stretching are best for stress relief.
Avatar n tn Apart from these 2 incidents i do not remember any other injuries. as I said i use PCs for almost 5 to 6 hours a day. Recently for the last two months, i have been feeling pain in the following areas: 1. once in a while, very little or no numbness in last two fingers (little finger and the next one) 2. continuous irritation in a single spot in the back shoulder plate. Painful some times but most of the times, irritation/burning senstation.
Avatar f tn You can do the early rehab exercises with light ankle weights or resistance bands, and you can ride a stationary bike at varying degrees of resistance to strengthen your muscles and work on your range of motion at the same time. Consider taking yoga or tai chi classes. Both are recommended by the Arthritis Foundation as effective range-of-motion exercises, and both focus on slow, controlled movements.
Avatar f tn he refused to believe that i had injured myself badly because I wasn't playing a sport that is prone to knee injuries at the time (I did play netball which is prone to knee injuries but that was a few moths before my injury)but according to my understanding the nature in which those injuries are obtained is the same way in which i obtained mine, I then elaborated further on the extent of the pain (walking up and down the stairs was difficult at the time) and he said that i should have a MRI tak
Avatar n tn Neurological complications of habitual leg crossing tend to result from peroneal nerve compression, which manifests as foot drop, not sciatic nerve (too far up). You can get sciatic nerve problems with prolonged sitting in the lotus position (as in yoga - with your legs flexed and hips abducted), especially on a hard floor. 3.Depends on exactly what nerve (s) are involved, to what extent/degree the injury was, and your height (length of nerve in you).
Avatar f tn I have had the same symptoms on both feet (pain when bending over at the waist and not the knees, pain worse in the morning and lessens during the day, walking does not bother it, legs straight out are fine but if I flex my foot backwards it causes the pain). The right foot was a problem for almost a year and a half and the left foot just started a few weeks ago. The right side problem was the accumulation of a lot of tightness on my right side over multiple years.
Avatar m tn I started for my own pain relief, and my first instructor had a back injury, so she was very receptive to other injuries. Yoga strengthens the core, stretching allows for less injuries, more flexibility, and strengthens all body parts as a whole, as many actions use all body groups.. and it also increases balance, and helps heal the mind. It gives you time to think about you! Please please book yourself a massage though!!! The ART (active release) you can just book yourself.
Avatar n tn I broke my neck and had several other injuries in my profession. I've had 12 operations since 02. Forced to retire after 20 years, 6 years ago. The doctor that preformed the first surgery on my neck later got arrested for taking kickbacks off material he used such as plates or screws, cadaver material. So my pcp took care of me after that. I have had a Doctor that specializes in spinal injuries for the last year or so. He, in my opinion is a good, carrying professional.
Avatar m tn Sprinting is one of the most traumatic things you can do to your body -- doing it occasionally when you need to get somewhere quickly is natural, but doing it over and over isn't, and this sport is notorious for muscle cramping (hamstrings, anyone?), foot injuries, ankle injuries, etc. Look at any Olympic sprinter and then look at injury history -- for most of them it's a pretty painful pursuit.
1711722 tn?1356491154 I have pre-existing Tendonitis and (because of some bad computer habits) it has flaired up again. Still, I was told that Hep C tx can cause certain injuries to "wake up" again. Has anyone had this happen? They said it could even wake up broken bone pain. Ouch! 2. I recently noticed a long groove/indention on my thumbnail. Check your nails and let me know if you have experienced this. 3. Emotional numbness. The anti-depressant is working.
Avatar m tn There are a variety of typed of yoga - one that will fit nearly everyone's capabilities. There's even yoga for seniors and chair yoga. Additionally, I find that the more I weigh, the more difficult it is to exercise.
1132574 tn?1271676066 I work with computers and have repetitive strain injuries. While that is separate from the Lyme, the two seem to play off of each other, as the bunched up muscles from the strain injuries are aggravated by the inflammation from the Lyme. Alternative therapies should always be a personal choice that is well-researched. Just throwing in my testimonial for how well the chiro care is going for me.
12832842 tn?1448732401 I do exercises to help my left foot flop. There is chair yoga or exercises. I lift small weights too everyday. Oh and stretches first thing in the morning. I also do horse back riding. I found a local lady who teaches me for a small fee. There is therapy riding. Riding works your core. I like riding because a horse can give me speed again even at a walk. You work your body and it is great for balance. I have also done yoga. It was not for me. You have to find what works for you.

544292 tn?1268886268 I had such incredible sensitivity to light, sound, people, loud noise. It truly was like having a migraine and having the flu and having my back injuries all at the same time. Add in zero appetite. And no sense of thirst. (Weird!) Anyhow I am over here feeling like Snow White; wanna sing and dance and have birds come help me put on my dress! Totally amazing and I have to remember it, so I am writing about it.
7188197 tn?1399467911 I have been crying the last 4 days because it hurts so damn bad it goes from my butt all the way down to the heel of my foot (right leg only) OMG I just cant take this anymore!
212795 tn?1194956174 some things that come to mind are pinched nerves (i had this when i was pregnant and stretching helped) or maybe lack of circulation which would be addressed by a dr. overall, maybe go and get a physical. i highly recommend yoga at least 2 to 3 times a week. more if you can fit it in. stretching prior to exercise is great but yoga is that extra kick w/ a bonus of getting to know yourself way down deep. It helps you fall in love w/ your self from the inside out. man, i sound cheezy...
Avatar n tn Most reg MD's have a daily job of non-complicated illness so when they get a report w/ scattered foci, they don't have time to do or repeat clinical exam for transmission (hammer knee/ pin-*****/scrape foot) basics, that Neuro should do. Hopefully Neuro will look at films or faxed report from referral. You have a rt & left brain & ea. has 4 lobes. The scattered means just that. It forms no significant pattern nor large enough to justify measurement.
Avatar m tn For the next twenty minutes I was unable to walk and any time I tried to put pressure on my left foot it felt like someone was stabbing me in the hip joint with a butcher knife. The only relief that I felt is if I bent my left foot up to my bum (backwards) and held it there. At this point each time I tried to move my leg I continuted to feel the stabbing pain in my hip.
4271307 tn?1353468375 I have two blown disc in my upper back, plus years of damage from sports injuries and arthritis. I am a candidate for surgery, but there is only about a 60% chance that it will help and it is quite possible that I could end up worse than I am now. Again, I have very bad insurance and the doctor I have is the only one within 25 miles of where I live that would accept my insurance (and was accepting new patients). I have a feeling that I will have to travel farther to find another doctor.
211940 tn?1267884866 Q? With MS, should I be exercising? I have gained quite a bit of weight (30 lbs.), since my accident back in July, last year. In previous years, I would exercise, I have an "exercise bike", that I was doing 40 miles in an hour (and burning tons of calories). Then I had foot surgery and was unable to exercise.
Avatar n tn It started 4 years ago down the side of my left foot to my little toe. Huge burning /tearing sensation when I extended my foot out. AS in to kick a ball or to kneel on the floor. This came and went for a while but slowly got worse...moved feet and now it is a constant numbness in my right foot to my big toe and heel - which pulls on the tendon when I extend my foot upwards - opposite to the toe pain. The constant numbness is annoying. I'm a 36 Y/O Male Fit Fat person who enjoys a tipple.
Avatar n tn The only thing that has seemed to make any difference was going on an anti yeast (candida) program and exercising, stretching in particular. in the form of yoga. Over the course of the last many years I have been on antibios for prostatiitis/epidimitis many times for periods of 30 and 45 days. almost every time I have ended up with nasty systemic yeast infections.
