Avatar f tn I recently watched this show about feet. I was particularly interested because I had super flat feet when I was a kid and fell often enough (scars on knee to prove it). Not that I'm saying you shouldn't go to the doctor (by all means). Just something to keep in mind. Childrens feet aren't fully developed. Correcting a "problem" now could result in the foot not develpoing correctly on it's own. Look it up, I think it may have been a PBS special.
Avatar m tn Any chiropractic or podiatrist will tell you that as well. So yes, if you have been having foot problems, your back pain can be caused from the foot/feet.
Avatar f tn As a child I had femor anteversion, I went through physical therapy. I have always had flat feet, left foot worse than right. My left foot is so turned inward that it has caused my knee to turn in when I walk/run. I plan to discuss this with my Dr, what options will they give me ? Will they say knee replacement? Or surgery ? Or bionic leg ?
Avatar f tn From your flat back position, bend one knee to a 90 degree angle while keeping your foot on the floor Allow your knee to “fall” gently to the opposite side of your body, letting your hips twist Rest your foot on the floor for support and try to keep your back and hips flat on the floor Repeat on both sides for 10-20 seconds Pretzel Stretch This stretch is excellent for releasing tension in your buttocks and pelvic floor.
Avatar f tn Dear Michelletremoni, welcome to the medhelp forum. These symptoms are suggestive of patellofemoral pain syndrome,caused by overuse injury. Conditions like flat feet, high arched foot can contribute to the pain. You can refer an orthopaedician for appropriate arch supports in footwear. You must do exercises as recommended depending on suspected group of muscles responsible for the symptoms. Try applying ice, over the counter painkillers, though these only provide temporary relief.

1308443 tn?1302693321 I'm a 17 year old girl and have had bilateral knee problems for 3.5 years and despite lots of doctors visits I still have no diagnosis. I have learned that I overpronate and I'm very flat footed. MRIs and blood work is normal. This weekend my right knee began to have pain at the top of my knee cap. It feels like it is stuck on the pop. I can still get my knee to pop but it still feels like it is stuck on another pop.
Avatar f tn leg weakness (causes my walking to be more of a waddle) - numbness - calluses - knee problems (due to the weakness which would cause more pressure to the knees.) That's my theory but from the neuro's mind I don't have no problem even though he was the one that noticed the weakness.:( Sorry for the vent. Just had to get it out!!
Avatar m tn swelling can be caused by incompetant veins (venous stasis), congestive heart failure, or COPD. if the swelling is caused by the veins and not the above mentioned, knee high compression stockings with 15-20 mmHG compression helps tremendously. they would have to be donned first thing in the morning and taken off b/f bedtime. the swelling in the legs can contribute to the feet throbbing. wearing supportive comfortable shoes help too.
Avatar f tn She put in needles WITHOUT alcohol swabbing in my elbow crease area on R and L arm, and straight on side of index finger in addition to sides of feet near big toe. I had tingling sensations and uncomfortable ever since. I have uncomfortable tingling in my left arm and left wrist, it was difficult to type with both hands without a weird uncomfortable sensation for first 3 days including intermittent pins and needles in both my feet.
Avatar n tn I walk up to 13miles a nite and have very flat feet not to mention bunions. The bunion on my left leg is much bigger than the one on my right leg! I occasionally forget things I'm going to say or forget where or what I was going to do next, but being 40 I thought this as normal. My vision may get a little blurred but I work 12 hr.shifts. The only med. I am on is LEVOTHYROXIN100MCG. My mother has a chronic case of arthritis. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn This happens due to mal-alignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint. All these aspects will have to be investigated by your doctor. Other possibilities are bursitis (inflammation of fluid filled sac over joints), tendonitis (inflammation of cords joining muscles to bones) or due to weakness of patellar bone.
Avatar m tn Jones fracture is a fracture at the base of the 5th metatarsal caused by pull exerted by some tendons such as peroneus brevis muscle. There is pain, tenderness and swelling at the outer border of the foot, most marked at the site of 5th metatarsal. Diagnosis is easy by an X-ray. Treatment is by below knee walking plaster cast for 3 weeks. Take care!
Avatar f tn My Baby is 2.3yrs. She has flat feet her knees touch each other when standing. The Dr. claims that it is normal for that age group.. I am NOT happy about this and asked for a second opinion - there is however a very long waiting list. She badly needs new Supportive shoes. Can you suggest anything for her? Thank you so much.
Avatar m tn Now, I notice that tons of people never encounter this problem wearing Chucks or flat-soled shoes... Would my feet be shaped a certain way that made them more prone to these problems? Are there any kinds of inserts that might offer support for me in this area? Thanks for your time!
Avatar f tn when I was almost 13 years old I jumped off a balance beam flat on my feet. I could hardly walk the rest of the days, very sore and I had a fever. Years down the road I fractured my right foot. For years now if I walk for a while, like in the store, my feet hurt and I have to leave....When I was in my 20's and especially in the summer my feet would hurt (the arch) when I first got up in the morning...
Avatar m tn Hi. Last night my big toe has started to hurt incredibly bad. I can't bend it and keeping my foot in the air has causes it to give me immense pain. I know I've been not drinking water (dehydrated) and eating once a day for the past week and I'm afraid it might be gout considering the pain is mostly centralized in the joint that connects the toe to my foot.
Avatar f tn There are orthopedic surgeons who are also foot specialists. But I'd see a podiatrist, as Mom suggests. But it sounds like your problem isn't just flat feet, it sounds like you also pronate. I don't know what kind of shoes you wear, but if you go to very high end running shoe store they can look at your stride and tell you what kind of shoe you should be wearing. But your symptoms do sound like it could also be neuropathy.

1308443 tn?1302693321 I'm 16 and for 3 years now I have had knee problems. I have had x-rays, 2 MRI's and 2 sets of blood tests. I have seen my doctor, 2 orthopedic specialists, and a rheumatologist. I went to physical therapy for a few months 2 years ago. They said I had flat feet and gave me orthotics. The second orthopedic specialist said I had adolescent anterior knee pain and there was nothing he could do for me. A few weeks ago I went to the rheumatologist and he diagnosed me with bursitis.
Avatar f tn Was the brace fitted specifically for you by a specialist? I wore one when I fell and injured my knee years ago and a Physical Therapist fitted the brace to me to be sure that it was a good fit. This is something to bring up to your Doctor to be sure that it's the correct fit for your leg, if it doesn't "feel right" to you. Remember that we aren't Doctor's on this website, but I'm wondering if you might have developed Arthritis after all of the surgeries?
Avatar f tn I guess it would be near the knee joint. If his foot sat flat on the floor it would be where our heal is? He is just one year old, but is a very large boy! Not overweight, just mighty!
Avatar m tn Pain in the back of the knee can be caused by arthritis or Bakers cysts (cystic accumulation of synovial fluid, also causes a swelling). So as you can see, arthritis can cause an overall knee pain. Ligament injury causes pain to worsen on walking, bending and stretching the knee. Meniscii too if torn or injured, result in joint instability—that is you are not confident the knee joint will take your weight. Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint.
