Osteoarthritis foot exercises

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis foot exercises


Avatar m tn My question is whether anyone can tell me if osteoarthritis in the lower spine can cause grabbing, debilitating pain that causes the patient to cry out it is so severe. These pains act like pinched nerves, but MRS and Neurological testing shows no nerve damage from the spine. The regular arthritis pain increases gradually when the patient is walking and prevents walking altogether after about 15 yards. The grabbing pain is additional to the regular pain. The only relief for the pain is sitting.
Avatar f tn I also have severe osteoarthritis in both knees and just about every place else it can be on a human being and I'm only 60. I've had osteoarthritis since I was diagnosed at age 27. AS far as the Bakers Cyst goes, I saw nothing at all that looked different behind that knee but I had a great deal of pain especially when I extended my leg. Then, it went away. I have since developed Planters Fasciitis and I have a really bad problem with my right foot.
1176578 tn?1263756689 I am a 48 year old female who was diagnosed with osteoarthritis (left knee) nearly 10 years ago. After multiple tries on NSAIDS which made me ill, my orthopaedic surgeon settled on pain management (narcotic) which I have been taking for the past six years. While not an ideal situation, I follow my prescription to the letter, never taking more than prescribed. Over the past year I began to experience joint stiffness in the mornings.
Avatar n tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! Foot pain could be due to osteoarthritis. It could also be due to plantar fasciitis. Refer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantar_fasciitis There is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the cervical spine region. This can happen due to overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc.
Avatar f tn Is there an agreed upon place (butt, back, foot, thigh?) to put the ice pack and/or heating pad to help sciatic nerve pain the most? If not, where has it helped YOU most effectively? I appreciate any and all responses!
Avatar m tn For the past three months I have been having this pain on the bottom of my foot right in the middle. I have seen my doctor and he doesn't seemed worried, but its a PAIN when I walk. What could this pain be and what could be causing it ?
Avatar f tn Hello. Though physical therapy is useful in osteoarthritis, several trials have found that physical therapy is only mildly or moderately useful. Different individuals respond differently to physical therapy. There are certain exercises, which should be learnt from a physical therapist. Following are some techniques, which I have mentioned here from the article "Role of physical therapy in management of knee osteoarthritis" by G. Kelley Fitzgerald and Carol Oatis.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know of low impact exercises I can do that won't further cause my left knee pain. I am disabled because of osteoarthritis in my knees and spine. Thanks!
Avatar m tn 50years old man not aware of any medical problems complains of pain related to his joints in different places ( fingers, knee, foot ankle) it takes 2 weeks relief by ibuprofen and voltaren emulgel so the question is what is your recommendation about this case ? do you advice of some vitamins especially that he is getting older?

Avatar n tn When i do certain exercises i get a strange crunching/grinding feeling in various joints when undertaking some exercises. The joints are: knees, shoulders, ankles and hips. Ive only had this for approx 3 to 4 weeks. Its very unconfortable , and restricts certain ways i can lift my arms and legs during exercies. Do i need to take some sort of vitamin or health tablet to loosen my joints?
Avatar n tn Also when you are standing keep changing the position, lift your foot off the ground for sometime and let your foot bear the body weight alternatively. If possible keep a small stool nearby on which you can rest your foot from time to time. There are various other things you can try such as especially designed insoles, night splints and wraps. Besides this there are various massage therapies, stretch exercises, and pressure point stimulation by trained specialists. Take care!
431950 tn?1262822914 Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Aching feet can be due to wrong foot wear. So check that out. It can be a peripheral neuropathy as in diabetes or hypothyroidism. Pain or soreness in the foot, that eases with time during the day, is generally indicative of plantar fasciitis. The first step you take generally after sitting or standing for a long time or when you get up from the bed is painful. As you start walking the pain clears up.

Avatar f tn What can be causing this and what are my options at this point. I also have arthritis in my hands and in my left foot (oposite of the leg that hurts). I have been told that this ostoarthritis. What can I do.
Avatar m tn I am 52 and had fusion surgery on a pinched nerve that I had on the L5 of the spine in 2012. I had no problems in 2013. This year, 2014, about a month ago, I started getting a numbness, tingling, pins & needles feeling on my left leg and right foot big toe. I have osteoarthritis and had fusion surgery in May on my right foot big toe that goes numb. The pain would start in my hip/buttock area on the left side and would go down to my outer shin area.
Avatar f tn I have Osteoarthritis in both knees and had surgery awhile ago. What can I do for exercise other than walking, which I do every day at work etc. Please help if you can, thank you.

Avatar n tn More months pass and one day my hip feels fine, and it soon travels to my right knee. and so on. Now it's in my left foot and I'm hobbling around. What is going on??? Any ideas?
Avatar f tn I have had problems with my left knee before and it always got better with strengthing exercises and R.I.C.E. This time though it has swollen and pained me ALOT. I have a high tolerance to pain. I was walking 1 week later in New Orleans(there for a seminar) and the pain in my knee got so bad that I could not even put my foot down because it caused excrutiating pain in my knee. And I have pullng of muscles from the knee down my calf and up into the back of my thigh.
Avatar n tn non-operative treatments may include • Physical therapy, • Strengthening exercises, • Anti-inflammatory medications, and • Cortisone injections. However, some meniscus tears may require surgical treatment. A thin cartilage may not favour surgery .You should go in for conservative treatment and good rehabilitation.
Avatar n tn You are perfectly with day to day life doing exercises and all sorts of movement activities but still you getting pain in the joints and stiffness means some sort of issues are there with the joints. You better consult a doctor and take the pain relievers before the pain increases.
Avatar f tn Four years ago I was dx with osteoarthritis of both knees. Dr. said that I was walking "bone on bone" and that eventually I'd probably need tkr in both knees. He advised using glucosamine chondroitin which I've done and for awhile it seemed to help. I was able to increase my exercise a bit and was walking more with less pain and swelling. In the past few months pain and swelling has increased which I attributed to less exercise and some weight gain, about 4 or 5 pounds.
Avatar m tn Lately I've noticed that when I plant my left foot and pivot on it to turn my body to the right, my left knee makes a popping sound. In the last few days I've noticed that I can feel something move in the same knee when I walk down stairs. It feels like it's located to the left (outside) of the center of the knee. The right knee doesn't have any issues. There is no pain involved but I'm wondering if I should be taking some sort of action (glucosamine?) to prevent a future problem.
Avatar m tn Almost anyway on the foot, balls of my foot, heal just below the skin, arch of my foot, top of my foot. Another common area is at the very top base of my quadricep. So when I lift my knee it will hurt and be very difficult. This past weekend I got one on the top of my hand. Kinda felt like my point finger tendon that pulls my finger open was a little swollen and hurt to the touch and operate my finger. These are not excruciating, just very annoying.
Avatar m tn Drinking wine can ward off early symptoms of knee osteoarthritis, according to recent research from the UK. Drinkers who sipped 4 to 6 glasses of vino a week were 45 percent less likely to develop knee osteoarthritis than those who abstained from alcohol. But it's not alcohol that contains the antidote for better health; it's the specific ingredients found in wine that keep your creaks from becoming more serious. (Beer drinkers actually increased their risk of arthritis!

Avatar n tn sent me to a PT he said some muscles that hold my knee cap in place never developed. Did some exercises and everything was ok. 3 years ago I dropped a large glass bottle on my foot. (on the other side) Hurt for a long time, figured I broke it. I waited a while it came and went, but never got better. So I go to the Dr. he x ray ed it, told me it was NOT broken, I had arthritis in the big toe joint.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Pain or soreness in the foot, that eases with time during the day, is generally indicative of plantar fasciitis. The first step you take generally after sitting or standing for a long time or when you get up from the bed is painful. As you start walking the pain clears up. Plantar fascia is a ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes. If it swells, becomes weak or inflamed, it causes these symptoms. After some time, you may feel pain always.
