Isolation Foot Pain: Why your feet suddenly hurt

Isolation has done some very strange things to people; one of the stranger occurrences has been the dramatic increase Isolation Foot Pain from the increase in exercise that is being undertaken by those seeking relief from the four walls of their humble abode.

This sudden rush of energy is not only driving your pet beagle Bentley barmy, but there seems to be an increase in associated foot pain! In this article, we will give you some handy tips to get you pain-free, dispel a few Myths as to why your pain may be occurring and lead you in the right direction to keep you happy and Bentley the beagle tired!

Walking not only breaks up the Monotony of the day, but it has been shown over many studies to be the most significant difference to health outcomes. A video created by Dr Mike Evans, a preventative medicine doctor in Toronto Canada outlines the many benefits of being active for 20 to 30 minutes per day. The benefits are numerous, but if you’re not prepared to take my word for it, we run through the health benefits discussed in the video in my article attached HERE.

As many of you have discovered the downside of significantly increasing your walking can, on many occasions, be a corresponding increase in foot pain or discomfort. To change this let’s run through some common mistakes and some easy fixes to what’s happening

But I’m only walking!

But I’m only walking!

But I’m only walking!

“I’m only walking” is the most common statement made to me in the clinic. Some people think there is little difference between walking between the couch and the fridge and walking for an hour and a half 5 times a week. “Say whaaaaaaat!”

The term from ”Zero to Hero” is used in amazement,  not expectation! Sudden changes in the amount of walking you do will dramatically increase the load on the musculature in and around your feet and legs! It seems simple, but I often see people develop conditions like plantar fasciitis from doing this.

Answer: First head down to the part about making sure you have the right kicks! Then let’s ease into things. Start at a slow pace, Combine this with a short distance. You’re better to take 3 short walks down to the end of the street and back than heading off and tackling many km’s in one hit.

I have a patient who started by simply walking around his clothesline and built up from there.

Super cushioning is good for me, right!?

There is a bit of a Secret footwear people don’t talk about. It’s called the 10-second rule! You see they know that when you slip your feet into those shoes at the shoe shop and start walking around, the first 10 seconds are what really matters. The more cushioned or soft shoes feel underfoot in those first 10 seconds, the more likely you will buy them!

We associate SOFT with comfort. But that feeling doesn’t always last long! (Queue ominous music)

Footwear companies will do all sorts of things that will to trick you into thinking their shoes are Uber soft. Super Gels, magnificent memory foams. (who knew Airbags weren’t only for cars?)

Here is the thing, soft shoes tend to break down quicker and many times when your foot needs support it just ain’t there! As I’ve said to patients before, memory foam remembers every shitty position your foot was in and keeps it there! For patients, this seems to end in heel Pain or shin splints, so please be careful.

Answer: Look for shoes that are comfortable when you try them on but not so soft you feel like you’ve just stepped into a feather bed.

Airbags break down, or leak and foams tend not to last long.

Talk to friends who walk or run a lot. Don’t ask them what they wear now. Ask them what they’d start with.

It was only a 10 km jog

When we were kids, the preparation for the school cross country consisted of maybe the high school PE teacher taking us through the course the week before the event. Times were good. We played soccer, footy or handball every lunch. Then backed up with a game with friends after school. For many of us, that was at least ten years ago, and I’m generous.

As we get a little (cough) older, we tend to lose the ability to bound into a new activity suddenly. This is one of the most common causes of Achilles pain, (Achilles tendinitis) I see!

Answer: Consider gradually Getting back into activity. There is no problem with you deciding you’d like to get back into running. However, consider running and walking intervals for the first week or two. For example, run 400 m walk 400 m and repeat, as you Improve you may be able to increase the run section and decrease the walk section. This will build your cardio capacity and also reduce your risk of injury!

What you did as a kid, was when you were super fit ..... you’ll get there, but give it time

You will get pain as muscles change and get stronger - Expect pain from building muscle

No Pain, No Gain” if you haven’t heard this cliche, you perhaps have been living under a large rock or in a cave. This is a breakdown of a famous philosophical principle, but put in the hands of Gym junkies!

Anyone that has been serious about exercise, and in particular building muscular strength, will tell you that it is very common to have sore muscles after your activity. On occasions, this, in fact, is not a problem; it is simply Your muscles breaking down and re-growing. The caveat to this is if you are getting repeated pain over multiple occasions.

Answer: Expect a little muscle soreness from time to time. It’s normal to be a little uncomfortable. However, this is NOT to be mistaken with repeated and ongoing foot and leg pain. It should only occur in the first few occasions you begin a new walking or running program. After this, your pain is not just your muscles building strength, and it’s time to see a professional

You Choose the wrong shoe for you

Are you an under pronating (technical term), tennis playing, size 9 triple E or are you a cavoid (another technical term), court sport playing, size 9 extra wide? Those in the know will recognise I just described the same thing! Yup, it can be confusing! There is a plethora of options and even more opinions.

Answers: If you are walking Yes, you can walk in a running shoe. Try established brands like Asics and New Balance that are making shoes for athletes rather than companies that are making fashion shoes and sponsoring Athletes to wear them! Understand shoe sizes vary between brands.

For patients I see this develop again into heel pain type problems, sometimes called heel spurs, but this is almost always not the actual condition.

Tips here: If you can be measured up in a sporting footwear retailer do so! Don’t Be fixed on “your” size. Every brand has a different idea of how long a size 9 men’s is! Width is essential; if it feels too tight, it probably won’t stretch and get better in time.

Final suggestion: Stay away from gimmicks, the footwear industry is full of them! If your shoe has a connection for your Fitbit, the shoe’s athletic capacity wasn’t the focus of that shoe!

Getting the Right fit is an entire article in itself, so I wrote on here.

Change is good but...

Overall the messages are:

  • Make changes to activity level gradual.
  • Choose your shoes carefully and not based on colour trends or gimmicks.

Follow some of these simple suggestions, and you’ll be on your way!

Walking is a fantastic form of exercise, and it’s really delightful to see so many people out on the streets, away from screens. Talking and walking! Who knew a Pandemic could have such a positive effect!

Happy trails - safe steps!

Yellow Arrow shows the nasty creasing or frown lines - Remember there is no Botox for Footwear! That red line should really be straight up and down

How long do your shoes last? When do you know they need replacing? What are some of the less obvious signs your shoe is kaput!

So, we all want things to last forever; however, like the TV show Seinfeld or Cheers or Buffy the vampire slayer or even the Tiger King, all things must come to an end! So too a well-loved, well-worn pair of kicks (we are watching you, Carole Baskin 🧐🤣)

What’s the life or average life of a running shoe?

About 6-9 months for the average punter, if you are wearing them 2-4 days a week. Closer to 6 months if they are your daily footwear. This seems to blow people’s minds, that shoes don’t last forever 🤯

Running footwear is designed to be a mixture of high performing and comfortable. Think more European fancy car and less Smelly ford falcon taxi with stains and aroma of regurgitated pizza! 🤢

What signs can you look for, apart from the normal wear?

Look at the rear of your shoe. Place it on a flat surface. The centre of the heel counter (fancy name for the part that cups the back of your heel), the centre should be straight NOT leaning over to one side or the other.

If you look at these fabulous kicks Donna brought in (Donna is a cook), you can see that left shoe looks more like the leaning tower of Pisa and less like the Centrepoint tower. This dear friends is nooooot a good thing!

Donna was getting pain along the outside of her foot, making hours in a busy kitchen pretty crumby. (There’s a joke there)

Now, look at the sole of the shoe. Yup, right where those big bright red arrows have been strategically placed. See that the Creasing down the side of the shoe. They look like enormous frown lines that need filler or a shot of Botox if they were in a forehead. Sadly filler and Botox is only for Instagram models. Donna’s shoes are, yes you guessed it, bound for footwear heaven!

 

What about the shoes upper?  👟

There is more to look out for than holes where your big toe has installed its own “Air conditioning” into your shoe for you.

Look at the image with the green arrow. You’ll see that the foot has started to protrude past the outside of the sole of the shoe. “This little piggy” as the kids' nursery rhyme says has definitely “gone to market”.

If the upper of your shoes start to malform (leaning or protrude over the soul of the shoe) on either side of the shoe, then this is another great indicator that your shoe has reached its 11th hour.

What other shoe wear and tear stuff should I look out for?

So, we’ve assumed a basic primary school level of education for our readers. And we’d like to think that you are more Jerry than you are Kramer from Seinfeld.

So, the assumption is you understand that when your shoes get holes in them, or when you see the tread wear off the base, or your shoe wearing down you understand and appreciate that your shoes have lived a life well worth living yada yada yada .....

Can worn shoes affect your Orthotics?

Yes, they can! We realise not everyone that not everyone who reads our posts has orthotics, nor does everyone require them. But many of you do and so a quick note to say that Footwear that has worn such as the ones in this image can yes significantly have effects on the capacity of your orthotics to perform as they should. New orthotics are almost always better in brand-new shoes. When your shoes begin to wear and create unusual angles such as those in the photos you begin to find your orthotics don’t perform the way they were designed to.

So, that’s it! These are really simple things that you can look for that aren’t always as obvious, but will have a detrimental effect on your comfort if not addressed. Being in the whole foot comfort business thing as we are, we thought it was a good idea to bring it to your attention!

After reading this, do you need our help? Do you need more advice? Awesome! We really love helping people with foot ankle or lower leg pain! You can call our super helpful team on 9673 2987 and we will start being super helpful 😃

PS Yes, we were serious. There is no filler nor Botox available for your kicks—apologies to any Instagram models who may have taken offence.

Ready for Summer - How to choose awesome shoes for your fitness kick!

It’s that time of year where we look to putting away the winter Woolies and start pulling out the T-shirt’s and shorts. For many of us summer means trips to the beach a pool or somewhere else that requires us to bare more than we normally would hide away in winter.

This often means we also start getting back to fitness. Diving into exercise sometimes we are less prepared than we should be and we end up with foot or leg pain. Ouchie Mumma!

At a step ahead foot & ankle care If you were to ask our team of Professional foot doctors all qualified Podiatrists where people go wrong they will tell you it’s two primary areas.

Wrong shoes for the job

That’s right you decide that your jumping into activity so you rush down to buy new kicks based on ..... umm lots of you get things really wrong from here. You choose your new shoes for training based on;

  • Colour - really because you like blue?
  • Based on a brand you saw your favourite marque football or tennis star wears. - They are Professional mostly because they don’t get injured much and have awesome mechanics. Both of which you may lack!
  • You choose them because a fancy advertisement told you they were awesome. Ask yourself have you ever witnessed an advert that say “buy this, they are sort of ok”.
  • You choose them because your friend has some and they say they are awesome! Great idea if it’s a burger joint not so great when it comes to health advice.

How you should really choose a shoe

 

Generally your shoe should not only fit your foot but also your activity. Feet like both shoes and activity are all different! This means you should base your decision on more than the above. Particularly colour please not colour!

Here are tips that will help:

  • Flat feet generally go better with firm supportive runners. So if they say “super soft” and have nasty big air bags hanging off the sole these probably aren’t for you!
  • High arched feet like cushioning but not too much. Think moderation, look for shoes described as for under pronators or high arches.
  • Buy running shoes for running activities. Sounds simple but there are a lot of fashion shoes that are “runner” inspired. ASICS for example have separate fashion style shoes. Of you’ve decided to take up tennis with friends head out and get great TENNIS shoes!
  • Ensure they fit! There should be a fingers width between the end of your longest toe and the end of the shoe, when standing up. Your toes should NEVER touch the end of the shoe.

So that’s the first things as Podiatrist our team are going to tell you! As you read above this is two areas that people get a tad wrong. The other is getting into activity to fast and getting injuries that stop their activity. We will chat about that next week. So see you then.

Best shoes for Heel Pain Dr Brenden shows you what to look for

When I'm looking for a shoe for heel pain and recommending it to my patients, I'm looking for a more structured shoe.

What does that mean? In the back of the heel, this area is called a heel counter. It should never press in. It needs to be firm to hold your heel. I believe that the middle of the shoe should never bend.

Your foot doesn't bend in the middle and nor should your shoe. Really firm. However, the shoe should always bend at the Toe. Grab it at either end. It's great. It's bending there really easily. You should never wring or twist out.

See how it just can't do that? And finally, make sure that you're doing the laces up Firmly. Make that shoe feels like a glove. These are my tips for shoes when you've got problematic heel pain. It's my one tip that helps most people get out of pain reasonably quickly.

I Just Want to be Fit For Summer

I Just Want to be Fit For Summer

I Just Want to be Fit For Summer

Walk run and skip and dont stop for foot pain

Don't let foot pain stop you from reaching your goals!

The warm weather had started last September, we had a series of warm spring days and this is when Sarah appeared in my office. “I just want to get fit for summer” I am so sick of not getting there and I just need some answers. Sarah went on to explain that this was not her first attempt at getting fit, frustratingly she had tried the year before and throughout winter to get there. But despite eating the right thing her training or more accurately her foot pain always got in the way!

New Shoes might be the answer?

Sarah had been to a reputable sports footwear retailer and had grabbed a pair of runners that the store had recommended. While initially comfortable and her looking seriously cool in them ;-). After her attempts each night to walk or run she still found herself in pain. If not that night, over the following days she developed pain in her arch on the inside of her foot. It went from being a dull ache to at times being a sharp pain. It also felt like it ran up the inside of her leg a little. (ahhhh ok so that’s a bit different) If she stopped running or walking for a few weeks / days it got better but once she started again it was back!

A visit to the doctor

Kühlpack auf Fuß mit SchwellungFrustrated with this she saw her GP who suggested she try putting some ice on the area. Again, she went home determined to get better but with little result, YUP the ice made it immediately feel better, but straight after on the next walk it came back.

Ok let’s try the physio!

Still not deterred she headed to a local Physio. He said it was a heel pain may be fasciitis or a heel spur? He did a short massage, used a machine that created a type of heat and showed her some stretching. Ok so this was a bit better she thought, for several days and even a session of walking it felt bearable but ………. on trying to increase her activity again, there it was like that old uncle you can’t stand but see every now and then at family function, you don’t want to see them but bam!!! There they are!!

A solution!

Finally, after speaking to a friend, who had a similar problem, she came across our clinic. “My friend drove across the city to see you and you got her better.” She said. “You must be worth it because my friend had been everywhere and now raves about you” (feeling pretty chuffed right now)

Its NOT a heel spur!

That’s right nope and it wasn’t fasciitis! Yep these are super common MISdiagnoses for this type of pain!  If you don’t see this multiple times a day, and you are also trying to work on shoulder pain and fix dodgy knees its easy to get it mixed up!

Tibialis Posterior pain is NASTY

On watching Sarah’s walk on our Video Walk run analysis equipment it became pretty clear that her walk or “gait” and “biomechanics” in podiatry speak was lousy! We found that Sarah’s feet were rolling in too much and that put very simply her arches needed more support, to give her muscles a chance to work properly.

While the physios stretches and exercises were great, the lowering of her arch needed assistance for her to be able to do all the work they required. NO amount of super special exercises are going to get this muscle strong enough. Not if you actually want to get active!

So, what’s the plan?

I chatted to Sarah and developed a treatment plan that meant we could get her back to training and finally fit for summer! So what did we do?

  • We made a custom-made pair of orthoses for her after taking a 3D laser scan and a detail series of Biomechanical measurements – fancy talk for checking each joint in your foots movement – all the muscles strength and how all the joints and muscles work together! SOFT SOFT SOFT but more below.
  • Arranged a series of Deep connective tissue massages. While the orthoses will fix why the problem was occurring the soft tissue therapy will address the muscle, we need to help the muscle along it way to being healthy again and ready for activity.
  • Stretches which is pretty standard BUT really importantly strengthening exercise were also prescribed if you don’t get the muscle STRONG we are running in circles.
  • We addressed Sarah’s shoes. While her shoes were fantastic, and truthfully loads of patients aren’t as good as Sarahs. If you don’t get this right with patient’s treatment falters! The right shoe for the patients foot type helps, not only supporting the foot, but also working with the orthoses. The aim is to get Sarah back to exercise as soon as possible to reach her health goals.

SOFT pliable inserts – NOT rock-hard harbour bridges!

That’s right SOFT devices we never make hard rigid devices! All our custom-made orthoses are made and designed exclusively by our clinic, in our onsite orthotic laboratory it takes about 3 weeks for the process of computer aided design by our me, they are then milled out using CNC milling and finished by hand. We have a super dedicated team and these are flicked off to a lab somewhere overseas like other clinics often do. Our devices are produced by our awesome lab technician right at the practice!

While waiting for these we began the treatment plan and her DCTM, strength and stretching.

So, what happened?

In four weeks at her review Sarah reported her discomfort had dropped dramatically. She no longer had pain after every walk and had found that she was able to increase to running. We reviewed her stretching and asked Sarah to increase her Km’s of running per week. She was stoked! 8 weeks later on her final review Sarah was ecstatic “I can run” she said. “I haven’t been able to run pain free in years”!

So, where to from here?
