Sub-4 Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Clinic in Staffordshire, West Midlands
Jogger’s Foot is a general term for medial plantar neuropraxia. It is an injury in which the medial plantar nerve at the bottom of the foot, gets compressed due to repetitive injury to the bottom of your foot.. Jogger’s foot usually affects not only joggers, but long distance and marathon runners also.
Repetitive impacts (like running) to the abductor halluces muscle, causes the muscle can become swollen and inflamed. This in turn, presses against the medial plantar nerve causing the nerve to be compressed or trapped. This is cause the pain.
Achilles Tendinopathy and Treatment
Achilles tendinopathy can be a very painful condition affecting not only the Achilles tendon but is also very vital in terms of your lower limb health, as it allows you to lift your foot when you first begin to walk or run. It enables you to move forward, walk or run easily, whilst standing or walking with considerable pressure being placed upon the affected area.
As well as allowing your leg to support your bodyweight an injured tendon can also cause considerable pain. The pain in most cases is usually caused by inflammation within the tendon, although in more extreme cases damage can be caused to other structures in the tendon.
