These things are so painful, right?!
Not sure if you know this, but when the metatarsal bones rub against one another, the friction can generate a callus around the nerve. This compression can be due to any number of factors, but weak arches oftentimes result in a sagging-looking standing posture.
So, this is just another manifestation of an improper or inefficient gait cycle, and if left untreated, it can lead to severe problems down the line, including amputation.
The Mayo Clinic recommends orthotic shoe inserts as an over-the-counter (OTC) therapy for Morton’s Neuroma.
We also advise going for shoes with a wider toe box for runners and to avoid wearing tight fitting casual shoes for long periods of time.
Relieving the stress around the inflamed nerve is paramount to recovery. The ALPHA Foot Medic was specifically designed to support all three arches of the foot and redistribute weight so that no one place on your foot endures more hardship than another.
Specifically, our inserts feature a unique ‘third arch’ support, that supports your metatarsal arch (or transverse arch). By supporting this arch we can alleviate the compressing forces acting on your metatarsal bones (toes bones) and in turn the damage-causing friction.
It’s a tearing of the fascia (tissue) along the bottom of the foot, usually around the connecting site at the heel...in horror film terms, it feels like Freddy Krueger is playing Beethoven, and your foot is the piano!
IN SHORT, PLANTAR FASCIITIS SUCKS!
MSD stands for Musculoskeletal Disorder, which affects the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, ligaments, and tendons. Exposure to these known risk factors for MSDs increases a worker's risk of injury.
According to the Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is a broad term used to describe pain in the front of the knee and around the patella, or kneecap. It is sometimes called "runner's knee" or "jumper's knee" because it is common in people who participate in sports—particularly females and young adults—but PFPS can occur in nonathletes, as well. The pain and stiffness caused by PFPS can make it difficult to climb stairs, kneel down, and perform other everyday activities.
