If you wanna cover up the pain, get the inserts
Or fix it so you don’t have to deal with it
Inserts will only exacerbate the problem[/quote]
I roll them and stretch a lot. I don’t have the option to stay off my feet. Got anything better?[/quote]
stretching is one of the worst things you can do to an inflamed ligament or joint.
If it’s an option, find an ART practitioner, and get it fixed in… maybe 2 weeks or sooner.
And about rolling…
everyone squats… some get gains, some get hurt
it really depends if you know how the fuck to do it right [/quote]
I don’t have an ART practitioner around here…
Not sure you know what you’re talking about regarding inflammation. Why would aggressive manual therapy be good for an inflammed area, and stretching bad? My achilles isn’t inflammed, so there’s that. I’ve got good standing posture, my gait is proper. Nothing but my weight and the shoes under my feet are the link to the pain. I’m not sold on myofascial work in this situation as the only option, it’s silly and I’m not moving with false patterns. The problem will just come back up if I stop seeing the manual therapist, that’s your solution.
I’m standing on my feet all day. I know at least 1 kind of shoe that helps, a lot, and am reaching out to those who have been in my situation (a lot of people on here wear chucks, this is a good site to ask this bc of that). I really don’t have the money to spend on a wonderful pair of shoes, let alone some guy to rub my feet and tell me to come back weekly.
You haven’t even asked what I wear on my feet yet dude, how do you know if x, y or z will help? I don’t need recommendations from someone who isn’t even paying attention to the situation. [/quote]
You most likely had PF because you haven’t been wearing flat sole shoes, like chucks. And it’s apparent you haven’t been wearing chucks because you’re asking about special shoes to hide the pain (there are obviously other factors that attribute to PF besides shoes). Three ways to get inflammation out is nutrition, soft tissue work, and reduced stress (emotional and/or local) And then there is aspirin, but we all know that causes all sorts of complications.
Did a professional tell you that you don’t have faulty patterns in your hip/lumbo complex? Or is that just your assumption. Because if you’ve been doing everything right, you wouldn’t have PF, right? And if you just want to know which shoes to get, then get it.
Your PF is not caused solely by a tight achilles. It’s an overactive flexor digitorum longus (sp?) and hallucis longus… which the origin of the problem can stem from anything from your foot, all the way up to your hips.
But listen, if your hip is super healthy/aligned, your knees/ankles are healthy/aligned and your foot still hurts, maybe its a tumor. [/quote]
Yes, I’ve had professionals (plural) evaluate me. No one is perfect, no need to be a smart ass, but these are not issues for me. You’re telling me -itis is caused by either a tumor or bad motor patterns? lol
Also, ‘if I was doing everything right’ is a cop out. I have TOS, got that from fucking up I assume?
If I knew what shoes to get I wouldn’t be posting the thread, you’re missing the point. That’s evident since you’ve hijacked this thread and haven’t given me any useful info. Better yet, denied someone’s testimonial who has been without pain for 15 years. I’m not an idiot, I’m very involved in the science and practice in the strength world. I’m just asking for some fucking shoes that are better than mine. Also, you’re a twat to say that insoles are covering things up. You know chuck taylors have an insole, right? The thing between your foot and the ground. I’m asking for a work shoe (have you ever wore non slips?) that is similar to that… not a useless lesson questioning my knowledge.
Maybe I’ll take your sage advice and go see a doc to remove the tumor in my foot. [/quote]
Unfortunate you are upset.
And the gentleman who “didn’t” have pain for 15 years is because he covered it up with tape. He was being genuine with his situation to help you understand covering up the pain will only keep you in pain. And with that said, good luck buddy.
