Summer is Here, Spring Cleaning is Done, but Now My Feet Hurt

Posted on in Ask The Doc by Pam Haig, CPed., BOCPed.

Every year you dread spring cleaning. Not because of the work, but because those added steps to get the winter dust and clutter out of the house have caused you some foot pain. You don’t want this to compromise your vacations and summer events.

 

Now, I recognize that some of you ladies thoroughly enjoy spring cleaning. But for many of us, it’s a chore we’d rather pass on! But spring cleaning isn’t the only warm-weather chore that causes problems. Planting flowers in the garden can be just as much of a problem with all of the bending, twisting, pivoting, and digging we have to do.

It may start with an “ouch” kind of discomfort similar to a pinch.

Are You Suffering from Ball of Foot Pain (metatarsalgia)

Posted on in Body Recommended Ask The Doc by Pam Haig, CPed., BOCPed.
Do your shoes cause the ball of your foot to hurt? Is walking barefoot painful? You may be experiencing loss of the fat pad in your foot, or have bones that are more prominent than others (metatarsals). This prominence causes your weight to overload on those bones.

Is Your Foot Fatigue Causing Other Body Pain?

Posted on in Body Sole Ask The Doc by Pam Haig, CPed., BOCPed.

When your feet hurt, you can hurt all over. We’ve all heard “the thigh bone connects to the hip bone.” And while you can have pains in our back, hips, knees or legs that aren’t related to the foot or the way you walk (termed biomechanics), often times the feet are the cause of symptoms in these upper areas.
