Quite flat footed, I think the collapse of my arch is putting pressure on my tassel tunnel, pinching my lateral Plantae nerve, which in turn is effecting the Sural nerve on the outside of foot. I know this as after the initial ins and needles what has been left is numbing down the outside of the foot all the way up to the little toe. If I press on the where the tassel tunnel is ( on inside of left ankle) it sends a little pain up the left side to the little toe.
Basically I'm afraid after all these years tendonisis or degradation of the posterior tibial tendon is now in place.
Normally my routines which are quite thorough drop the inflammation but no improvement!
Any advice guys, especially what I can do in the next few days to get the damn inflammation down.
Hi I just went through something similar last week and am 100% now. In fact I had a session on monday riding waves, and the few sessions before that it was intolerable.
I'm attaching the pic of where my pain was, I've marked up in red the pain points.. as it was on the outside of the foot and I think you're saying yours was on the inside? My tissue was inflamed for 2 weeks, I was hoping it would go down, nothing.
Anyways inflamation is part of it, but not going to cure it, I went to this chiropractor lady that I always have gone to since high school for dislocated shit and she always fixes me up, she's in her 80s now, but she has magic hands, I had a half an hour session and she basically realigned the nerves with the tendons and then wrapped it.
The inflamation goes down after that, because the nerves are no longer being extended or pinched. I didn't even have to tell her anything she just had a f'n look at my foot, I couldn't believe it.. then she squeezed the area right above the toe next to the pinky and that was painful, I didn't even know that that part was hurting, and all the way half way up the font calf, I couldn't believe it.. she massaged the nerves and tendons back in place. Then she asks me to do full foot rotations on the spot, all the pain was gone right there! Touching all the spots where that were pain points, no pain.
I couldn't do it when I sat down on the bench. Sometimes things just have to be put in place. In our sport we're dealing with a lot of force, especially if you ride aggressively or conditions are aggressive (big breaks, etc.)
What I'm saying is that you may be able to walk it off, but if its serious enough you may have something out of place, that's why the inflamation is there, your body telling you something is not quite right.
I go to her because she works, one session, sometimes two, is shit pops back out again (which is common if you let it go awhile the entended nerves/tendons try to accomomdate to the new place).
Hope you find someone who can do that for you... posterior, anterior, the point if something is off, you need to get it back on in its original place. Good luck!
