Knee problems shoes

Common Questions and Answers about Knee problems shoes


Avatar n tn I am interested in MBT shoes (Masai Barefoot Technology). I had a knee operation (reconstruction of legaments) 10 years ago, and even though I do a lot of sport, I still have sometimes an unstable knee where it comes to running or aerobics. I would like to know if by using MBT shoes my situation is at risk of becoming worse or deteriorate as these shoes are imitating an uneaven surface, hence, might challenge unstable knees.
Avatar f tn Being flat footed doesn't help much either so I have orthodics in my tennis shoes. I only wear two kinds of shoes either my tennis with the orthodics or my chacos which help with arch support. HELP!!!
Avatar n tn It is a quick, sharp pain that seems to be inside my knee; I thing maybe a muscle or ligament, perhaps behind the knee cap or a little lower. I have been trying to be careful but the injury continues to linger, sometime bad, for over five months now. In the past, I have had tendenitis when I was younger, and I have had my it#?#? band injured that makes the little muscle on the outside of the knee hurt, but I am certain that this is a different injury than either of those.
Avatar m tn Now that your wearing supportive shoes the pain has went away. The wrong shoes for a lot of us can cause all sorts of problems with not only our feet but also our knees, ankles, back and neck. You can buy inserts at any drug store but you might want to think about having them specially made for you. They will take like a cast of your feet and custom make them for you. It can be expensive but you can always check with your insurance to see if they cover them, if you have insurance.
497951 tn?1209833333 I have knee problems and will most likely need a knee replacement on my right knee eventually. Also, I have heard the excuse about *scar tissue.* I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right wrist in Oct. 2007, and it still bothers me and the doctor blamed it on scar tissue. I don't know. I'll be honest, I don't really know what to tell you. I have a lot of joint and muscle pain and other problems with blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.
Avatar n tn Bruce you need to go to an expert podologist for advice on proper footwear and do’s and don’ts after your problems with your feet. Knee problems, due to arthritis, ligament tears cause lot of pain and the gait is changed in individuals over the years. This is a challenge for the orthopedic surgeon who replaces the knee and does some correction. After the healing and physiotherapy you should wear proper supportive footwear based on expert advice.
Avatar n tn one day I went on a very short walk with my husband to the store to buy some ice cream, The next day, my left knee started giving me problems, then sometime the pain would go away. I now can be sitting and try to get up the pain is there until i walk it off. In the morning, i get out of bed, the pain in there again until i walk it off.. it feels like a headache, but i have to walk it off, I didnt pull a muscle, didnt fall. didnt twist my knee..
Avatar f tn I'm not a doctor, but maybe the standing is causing all of your problems? Standing is worse than walking around. Maybe some supports in your shoes would help? Might be a low back issue, too. A disc issue in your low back from standing all the time might cause the knee and foot pain - I don't know. Keep after you pcp to help you figure it out and get you some relief. Good luck.
1470596 tn?1286717570 I had this problem and realised thanks to my physio, that I overpronated when running. This can cause knee problems which is why I needed to buy shoes with arch support which stops the foot rolling inwards. For walking you can buy orthotic insoles but I would not recommend running with these. I use Adistar Salvations to run. A good running shop will check you for pronation before you buy. Also this might seem obvious but are you stretching before and after running.
Avatar f tn I'm 17, and I've had knee pain in my right knee as long as I can remember. it is usually happens after standing/walking for long periods of time. Ive been to my doctor and to an orthopedic doctor, and they don't know what it is. I've gone through many xrays, and the only thing they found was a small, thin line going across my kneecap, but they said that it was nothing to worry about.
Avatar m tn I have not had any problems with anything until this summer. The same doctor did many adjustments and I have not had problems. SO my chiropractor did an adjustment (this time not 2 years ago), and I started to get a small consistent pain in my lower back. Then he did several more adjustments looking at the lenght of my legs etc... RIght after the second or third visit.. I started getting a "numbness" feeling in my knee.
Avatar m tn The right knee I sometimes have problems, but it's mostly the left. I finally got new running shoes and have started more leg strengthening exercises as well as stretches for the specific muscles (quads, hamstrings, etc.). But right now, my left knee is bothering me to the point where I don't really want to keep using it for fear of worsening the injury. From everything I've read, it seems to be Runner's Knee, but I'm not really sure.
963902 tn?1248365604 doctor. i had underwent an knee arthroscopy..its 4 weeks now..but i stilll feels some pain in my knee ....sometimes its as it was before arthroscopy.....i m not feeling fully comfortable withe my knee..
Avatar m tn There is also pain on the outside of my knee (to the touch) usually with moderate pressure that is located on the right side of my knee. I need some insight on what this might be, I have no insurance and looking for help/tips for treatment. Thank you for your time.
Avatar f tn I spoke to my mum about this a while ago and she says that it is from wearing skinny jeans and flat shoes, which made sense to me so I was more careful with what I wore. I now wear shoes with more structure to them and the pain seems to be less regular. However, just before it all started happening I knew someone who would dig his fingers into the back of my knees as I stood up.
Avatar f tn I am a 42 year old female, 6 months pregnant, no prior R knee problems. A week and a half ago, I was walking over a dog gate, tripped and fell, with all my weight on my right knee. There was some bruising alot of swelling, severe pain. The pain is only a little better, hurts to bend, cannot kneel down. Have sharp stabbing pains in it and burning. Difficult to sleep at night. My OB said that my kneecap is bruised, but it will be 2 weeks in a few more days since I fell.
Avatar n tn #1 Look to your shoes for the problem. Lots of shoes are off balance causing the problem to lodge in the knee. Think, have you gotten a new pair of shoes lately? Or are you wearing an old pair where the support is worn out? #2 Wear hinged knee braces on your walks and running about town, that will put the knees back into their proper placement. This will illeviate many of the problems you are having.
Avatar f tn I have been having problems with my knees for about 4 1/2 yrs, now. I started working on concrete floors and it all came about pretty quick. I got a pair of Z-coil shoes and they really help, but the situation is getting worse. We have no insurence and I have not even been to a specialist yet, only chiropractors and I finally said something to my M.D. I didn't want a trail with doctors if we could get insurance. So, they believe I have bone on bone.
Avatar f tn pain in leg starting in the back in the tail bone.down leg to severe pain behind knee. pinky is numb to slightyly numb. also feels like a lump is under my foot . no mater how much i feel it cant feel anything. pain is severe in knee when bent in sitting or driving position. after sitting for a while hard to get up and start walking.
Avatar f tn I kept the baby and he didn't end up playing. We went through a huge depression together since he had surgery on his knee, his job wouldn't let him back to work and the bills pulled up. He got addicted to the pain drugs because of the surgery and was always a Debbie downer...really wanted to leave, but knew he needed me for support. I worked 2 jobs and went to school full time and drove over an hour to visit him on weekends since I still lived with my parents. But we got through it.
Avatar f tn As you are increasing your mileage, you should pay careful attention to your running shoes. With your level of training, you should change your shoes no less than every three months. In addition, you may be several foot abnormalities which are now causing problems at your increased mileage. Consider evaluation by a podiatrist, and fabrication of orthotic shoe inserts.
Avatar n tn She is now walking with a walker because she recently fell while using a cane. Her right knee is now knock kneed towards her left knee. This seems to be causing her to walk on the inside of her foot, therefore, causing extreme ankle pain and a lot of foot and lower leg swelling. An insert that was molded to fit her foot was prescribed.
Avatar n tn Better nutrition and hydration before and after a workout. As you run, most of your body is focused on the muscles that are being used and are in immediate need of fuel, and this does not include the stomach. The blood flow to your stomach and digestive system is reduced to a low level, and digestion of food/fuel is slowed a lot.
Avatar m tn Hi- For the past three years I have experienced periodic flair ups with my left knee. They typically appear during periods of over use but sometimes just seem random. I was a runner for many years and once the flair ups started to occur, I switched to a stationary bike daily for only 20-30 minutes which has helped.
Avatar f tn my feet overpronate and i've been diagnosed with tarsal tunnel and wear orthodics in my shoes...around 16 years ago i smashed my tailbone on the side of a waterpark ride...never saw a doctor...only a chiropractor and only just this i don't know if all these below the waist problems are caused by the tailbone...i know there's nerves in there.... i'm going to my pcp next month for a yearly exam but i am going to bring up the problem i've been feeling in both my legs from the knee down.
Avatar n tn As I stated before, My left knee and leg has been stiff since June, 2002. In October, 2002, I noticed that after sitting in class for 3 hours, both of my knees were very stiff when getting up. Two weeks ago, I woke up and both of my knees were very stiff and achy, not sharp pain. This has not abided. I tried to do some light aerobic activity, thinking it may help. However, it proved to be too difficult.
Avatar n tn I experience pain in my left leg muscle below the knee and above the ankle, mainly the outer part of the leg. It hurts most at night and wake me up constantly. This is not a pain I experience everyday but lately it seems to have gotten worse and happen more frequently. I had test done for blood clot and everything was ok. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few years ago and was wondering if this could possibly be one of the symptoms.
892665 tn?1259175314 We have had a series of small little storm symptoms coming in and out. I have so much OA knee pain. I was dx with OA in my knees at 17 years old. I have been dealing with it for 32 years! I have tried years of meds, heating pads, cortisone shots, weight loss, aqua aerobics, physical therapy, Synvisc etc... I have limited mobility. I can get only about a 90 degree bend in my right knee on bad days, about 95-100 degrees on good days and I can’t straighten it to save my life.
2217782 tn?1394367572 Today I tried out a workout video I got for christmas and my main struggles was my knees. Everytime I done a squat there were lots of crackling noises coming from my knee caps. As far as I can guess it must be bone or cartilage? I would love to get fit but I'm stuck I'm a catch 22 situation here. Could anyone suggest what this could be? Is there any supplements I could be taking? I really need answers this surely can't be normal for a 19 year old?
