Foot complaints

You have pain in your foot and you want to get rid of it. Podiatry Thailand deals with various problems with the feet. Common complaints of the foot are: hammertoes, pinched nerves in the forefoot, heel pain, Sesamoiditis, Tarsal tunnel syndrome, Achilles tendon injuries, calluses and corns, Shin Splints, knee complaints, hip complaints, back pain, diabetic foot, rheumatic foot, flat feet, foot problems due to oncological treatments, capsular inflammation of the toe joint and a crooked position of the big toe.

Hammer toes

A hammer toe is a deviation of a toe. The joint between the first and second toe is bent. This creates a curvature in the toe or toes and we call this the hammer shape.
Hammer toes

Pinched nerves in the forefoot

Other names for a pinched nerve in the forefoot are morton's neuralgia or morton's neuroma. The nerves run from the metatarsal feet to the end of the toes. A nerve compression between the metatarsal bones can cause one of the nerves to thicken. Because you walk there is pressure on the metatarsal bones and in combination with the thickening of the nerve the pain arises. The pain usually develops between the third and fourth metatarsal.

Causes of hammer toes

There are several causes that can cause hammertoes: the crookedness of the big toe, a position deviation of the foot and a different gait pattern, tendons in the foot that are too short, a sagging foot, a toe that is longer than the other toes, wrong or too small shoes, flat feet or hollow feet, joint infections, a fracture in the foot or toe, old age, diabetes or rheumatism.

Symptoms and characteristics of hammer toes

There are several complaints that you may experience with hammer toes: the pain of one of the toes, stiffness and less mobile toes, difficulty walking and the development of a corn or callus.

Treatments for hammer toes

The solution depends on the type of hammer toe. There are both flexible hammer toes and rigid hammer toes. What is the difference between both types of hammer toes? Flexible hammer toes are bendable. Bendable means that the toes can be bent straight with the fingers. Flexible hammer toes are less painful and cause fewer walking problems. Flexible hammer toes can be treated well with arch supports and health sandals. It is possible to make an insole or health sandals to correct position deviations of the feet. Rigid hammer toes are stiff and cannot be straightened. The rigid hammer toes are painful and cause walking problems. Therapy of a rigid hammer toe is aimed at protecting the hammer toe and maintaining the current position of the toe.

Causes of a pinched nerve in the front feet

Causes that can cause pinched nerves in the forefoot are: very strong strain on the feet, minor damage, sagging feet, fractures, accidents with injuries, abnormal foot position, walking on high heels and wearing too tight shoes.

Symptoms of mortons neuralgia

Complaints of a pinched nerve in the forefoot are characterized by acute pain in the forefoot with radiating pain to the toes. The pain occurs during active movement. It causes cramp in the forefoot or a painful stab in the ball of the foot. By massaging the foot or taking off your shoe, the pain in your forefoot disappears. When the symptoms occur longer, the pain lasts longer.

Treatment of mortons neuroma

Treating a pinched nerve in your forefoot starts with adjustments to your shoes. By wearing wider shoes it is possible that the complaints in your forefoot will decrease or disappear. An insole or health sandals can help. An increase is made under the forefoot on the insole, which increases the space under the foot and gives the metatarsal feet more space. This causes less irritation and less pain in your foot.

Heel pain

Heel pain is a collective name for foot complaints at the back or bottom of the foot. Heel pain is a common foot complaint and is experienced as a stabbing pain when walking. Over time, a nagging pain remains. This is due to overloading the heel.

Causes of pain in the heel

Causes of heel pain can be: sports (in particular running and jumping), prolonged use of wrong shoes, walking, overweight, short calf muscle, standing far too long, squatting for too long, flat feet, hollow feet, steep sole of the foot, crying atrophy, osteoarthritis, inflammation .

Complaints with heel pain

Pain in the heel can manifest itself in various symptoms: pain under the heel when standing up, standing and walking for a long time, feeling stiff or tense in the foot or feeling like a purse in the foot. Some forms of heel pain are: Calcaneodynia, heel spur and tendon inflammation. The fat pad, which is located under the heel, ensures good cushioning while standing and walking. But as we get older, this fat pad loses some of its function. This means that the fat pad becomes thinner and reduces the damping capacity, which can overload or irritate the heel bone. Then there arises Calcaneodynia. A heel spur is a bone tissue outgrowth on the heel bone in the form of a splinter. A heel spur is often located where the tendon plate has its attachment to the heel bone. This can be demonstrated with x-rays. If there are no abnormalities found on the X-ray, then the tendon plate is more irritated or inflamed. The pain area at a heel track can often be pointed with one finger. A tendon inflammation is very annoying. A tendon leaf runs towards the toes and fans out to the heads of the metatarsal bones. It supports the length vault of the foot at the level of the sole (plantar) and increases the tension of the foot during running and jumping as a tensioned band. A tendon inflammation, also called plantar fasciitis, is usually caused by an excessive pulling force on the attachment of the tendon plate under the foot that is often caused by an incorrect position of the feet.

Heel pain treatment

To get rid of your heel pain, insoles can provide extra support for the feet. The goal is to reduce the tension in the foot that leads to less painful fee

Sesamoiditis

Sesamoiditis is a collective name for pain that you have at the level of the sesame bones and is a form of tendon inflammation. The sesame legs are two small bones that are attached to the long bending tendon of the big toe under the joint of your big toe. These sesame legs stabilize the tendon of the big toe. They help in carrying body weight and lift the bones of the big toe. If you suffer from Sesamoiditis, the pain concentrates at the level of the ball of the foot under the big toe. Most bones in a person's body are connected by joints. There are some bones that are an exception to this. These bones are in contact with tendons or are encapsulated by muscles. These are the Sesamids. The largest Sesamoid is the kneecap.

Causes

There can be various causes with Seamoiditis: overloading of the forefoot and big toe, a fracture, broken cartilage. Complaints and symptoms of Sesamoiditis Some symptoms you may experience with Sesamoiditis are: pain under the ball of the foot or toe, gradual pain, direct pain with a fracture, swelling, bruising, stretching and flexing of the big toe hurt.

Treatment Sesamoiditis

When treating sesamoiditis, a support sole is made to relieve the sesame bones in the ball of the foot. An elevation is made behind the head of the first metatarsal and further a recess is made for the sesamoids. If a support sole does not take away the pain, surgery is possible.
Sesammoiditis

Tarsal tunnel syndrome

Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a pinch of a nerve in the forefoot, toes or heel. In medical terms we call this the tibial nerve. The tibial nerve follows a long, tortuous route, from the back through the back of the leg to the ankle. Just above the ankle the nerve turns inwards towards the ankle. The tibial nerve lies there, along with an artery, between three tendons. All this is held tightly together by a sturdy band on the inside of the ankle. The nerve runs, as it were, through a tunnel with a few tendons and blood vessels; we call this the tarsal tunnel. When the nerve becomes trapped, the pain arises.

Causes Tarsal tunnel syndrome

In Tarsaal tunnel syndrome, the nerve is trapped in the tunnel. Because the nerve is surrounded by tendons of large muscles, it is usually one or more of these tendons that are thickened and require more space in the tarsal tunnel. This causes pressure or pinching of the nerve in the tarsal. There are several possible causes of nerve crushing: osteoarthritis, overloading of the foot, injury to the ankles and positional abnormalities of the foot.

Complaints with Tarsaal tunnel syndrome

Typical symptoms for this syndrome are a dull feeling in the foot, heel, stitches, tingling and burning. Lifting the foot and bending the ankle in often also cause pain. The complaints mainly occur in the evenings and at night, especially after long standing and running. While there are usually few complaints in the morning hours.

Treatment with Tarsal tunnel syndrome

Through research, the specialist can find out which structures cause the pinching of the nerve. Usually the cause is the deviation of the position of the foot and ankle, and especially the collapsing or kinking of this. The specialist can often correct this through arch supports. This reduces the pressure on the nerve in the tarsal tunnel and the nerve will be able to recover.

Achilles tendon injuries

An Achilles tendon injury is an injury to the Achilles tendon that runs from the calf muscle to the heel. The Achilles tendon is the strongest and largest tendon in a human body. The power ensures that you can run or jump. The tendon can become inflamed or damaged by overloading the Achilles tendon.

Causes of Achilles tendon injuries

There are several possible causes for Achilles tendon injuries: overload of the tendon, reduced muscle strength, flexibility of the calf muscle, incorrect footwear, incorrect posture, walking on an unstable surface, swelling of Achilles tendon, red skin at the Achilles tendon, stiffness of the tendon after extreme relaxation or effort.

Complaints in Achilles tendon injuries

Achilles tendon injuries can be recognized by the following symptoms: often cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the back of your leg near your heel.

Achilles tendon treatments

Initially, medication can ensure that you have less pain. You will also have to take sufficient rest. By conducting research, the specialist can assess whether there is a deviation in body posture in the position of the feet. These can be corrected with insoles. What can also help is a relieving sole with a heel lift. This sole ensures that the tension on the Achilles tendon is reduced.

Heel pain by children

Morbus sever is an inflammation of the growth disc of the heel bone. The growth disk is irritated by an

excessive pull on the Achilles tendon. The heel is the rear part of the foot. In the growth phase that children

go through, the heel bone must grow in different directions. The growth disc of the heel bone is located at

the rear of the heel bone. Just above it, the Achilles tendon sticks and some fibers appear to extend below

the heel. This condition is common in children and young adults who are growing fast.

Causes of heel pain in children

Causes of heel pain can be: intensive calf strain, spurt of growth, shortened calf muscles, flat feet, hollow

feet, instability to the foot or ankle, ankle stiffness, overweight, injury or an abnormal foot position.

Complaints about heel pain in children

Symptoms of Morbus sever resemble the symptoms that adults experience with heel spur. Some

symptoms are: nagging pain, slight swelling, pain on the bottom or back of the heel, walking on

toes, limping.

When children have pain in the heel, rest is important. Make sure that the intensive load on the

feet is reduced or stopped. Pain is a signal to keep calm. In the end, the heel pain will resolve

itself. Children between the ages of 14 and 15 no longer grow explosively, so that the heel pain

disappears. After examination, a specialist can determine whether a shoe insole is needed to

allow children to walk and exercise without pain. An insole will be needed until the growth disc is

fully grown and the heel can bear the load. It is important to act on time and to take the

complaints seriously. This way you prevent the pain from getting worse.

Heelpain by children Back

Shin Splints

Shin splints is also called leg conjunctivitis or tibial irritation. It is an injury on the inside of the tibia that is caused by overloading. The continuous pulling of the muscles on the tibia can cause inflammation.

Causes of Shin Splints

Bone inflammation can be caused by poor shoes, a deviation in the position of the foot, difference in leg length, intensive exercise or being overweight. Athletes who have previously been diagnosed with Shin Splints have an increased chance of recurrence. Women are more sensitive to getting Shin Splints than men, because women have a different movement pattern, which puts more pressure on the tibia.

Complaints at Shin Splints

The most common complaint is a nagging pain on the inside of the shins, just above the ankle. Or higher, even up to the knee. But other complaints can also arise, such as: swelling, feeling of pressure, a throbbing and warm feeling on the shins, strong pain when squatting and the overlapping of the legs. If you do not treat the complaint properly, the pain will not only arise during exercise, but also at rest.

Treatment Shin Splints

A podiatrist considers all facets of the problem. Not only the everyday movement pattern, but also sport-specific aspects are discussed. Due to the versatility of the problem, different therapies are possible. You should think of sports insoles, walking advice, shoe advice or temporary stools in combination with physiotherapy.
Back Shin splints

Knee, hip and back pain

The feet are the basis of the body. Clients with foot complaints have the chance that they will also get other physical complaints on their knees, back or hips. A wrong posture or movement can result from a deviating position of the feet.

Causes and symptoms of knee, hip or back pain

Pain on the knee can occur due to an abnormal foot, wrong shoes, leg length difference, abnormal foot position, intensive movement, abnormal position of legs, overweight and intensive movement. The complaints of pain in the knee feel like a stabbing pain. The complaints arise while standing and walking and get worse as the load increases. The complaints of hip pain are a stabbing, burning and nagging pain on the front, side or back of the hip. The complaints of back pain are a stabbing and nagging pain, stiffness and problematic movement. They are especially present in the morning when getting up from bed. With more exercise, the symptoms become less.

Therapy

In a study the podiatrist can find out where the complaints come from. Based on the outcome of the examination, the podiatrist can correct a deviating foot position with insoles. This corrects the foot, so that the complaints are reduced.

Diabetic foot

Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease in which the body can no longer keep blood sugar levels in balance. The hormone insulin plays a key role in this. The body does not produce enough insulin. People with diabetes can suffer from a diabetic foot. This has to do with blood vessels and nerves that can damage the blood circulation in the feet.

Symptoms diabetic foot

You can recognize a diabetic foot by: wounds on the foot, less feeling in the feet, sore feet, tingling in the feet, cold feet, discolored feet or toes and swollen feet. Check your entire foot regularly for changes, discolorations and wounds. Make sure you have suitable shoes and that you have good blood levels. Do not walk barefoot and have a medical pedicure or podiatrist check your feet annually.

Diabetic foot treatment

Treating a diabetic foot is necessary to prevent complaints such as wounds, fissures and ulcers from getting worse. The podiatrist checks your skin on your feet at least once a year for temperature, calluses and pressure spots and the position of your feet. The podiatrist also examines the sensation in your feet, checks for good blood flow and checks whether the joints can move freely. After checking your feet, the podiatrist will advise you on foot care, shoes and any treatments. With existing wounds, the podiatrist, together with other specialists, will ensure that the wounds heal as quickly as possible.

Rheumatic foot

Rheumatism is a disease of joints, muscles and tendons. There are various forms of rheumatism:

inflammatory rheumatism, osteoarthritis and soaking rheumatism. People diagnosed with rheumatism can

suffer from a rheumatic foot. Inflammation will then occur in and around your foot joint. These

inflammations cause wounds and pain to your feet.

Symptoms of rheumatic feet

You can recognize rheumatism feet by symptoms such as: changing position of feet and toes, crooked toes, distortions, rheumatism nodules, pain when walking and standing, red joints, fluid retention, fatigue and thinning skin. Rheumatism cannot be cured. You can do a number of things to relieve the symptoms: get suitable shoes, keep moving, wear cotton or wool socks without seams, dry your feet well after washing and keep toenails short.

Treatment rheumatism feet

Rheumatic feet are sensitive to inflammation. Have your feet checked regularly by a podiatrist or medical

pedicure with a foot score. A changing position of your feet or toes can cause you to walk in a different way.

A consequence of this change in gait pattern is that more calluses can develop on your feet. Toenails can also

change because they do not get enough space in the shoes that you wear. To reduce these pressure points,

the podiatrist can make tailor support soles.

Flat feet

Flat feet are also known as sagged feet. In medical terms, sagged feet are also called pes planes. With flat feet,

the arch of the foot has sunk to the ground. Both the inside and outside of the foot are on the ground. You are

literally flat on the ground.

Causes flat feet

Sagged feet can occur after pregnancy, old age or heredity. There are two types of sagged feet, namely the

smooth flat foot and the stiff flat foot. With the smooth flat foot you stand normally, but your feet sag. If you

stand on your toes, you can see a foot arch. This is because you tighten your muscles in your foot well. With a

stiff flat foot you do not tighten your muscles when standing on tiptoe and your foot remains flat even in this

situation.

Symptoms sagged feet

You can recognize sagging feet by pain complaints on the inside of the foot, tired feet and ankles after walking

and standing, knee complaints because the ankle tilts inwards and a wrong position of the legs.

Flat feet in children

Children are born with flat feet. The first years of their life they keep flat feet. Flat feet provide stability when

learning to walk. As children get older, the arch of the feet grows in the correct position.

Treatment flat feet

Flat feet can be treated well. The podiatrist examines your feet. If there is a deviation at the foot, supporting

soles can be made to measure. The soles ensure that you get support while standing and walking. The

podiatrist can also give you shoe advice about the firmness and bending activities of the shoes.

Foot problems due to oncological treatments

Patients with cancer can get foot complaints due to chemotherapy treatments. Oncological foot care is therefore important. The treatments can cause changes to the feet. The feet must be regularly screened for calluses and ingrown toenails during the treatments.

Foot complaints with cancer

The most common foot complaints due to cancer treatment are: hand-foot syndrome (tingling, numbness and swelling), skin rashes, dryness, changes to the skin and nails, changes in feeling in the feet, cold feet, sensitive skin.

Therapy

The podiatrist screens your feet for skin, nail and foot problems. Have your feet checked regularly by a podiatrist. A changing position of your feet can cause you to move in a different way. A consequence of this change is that more callus formation can occur on your feet. Toenails can also change. To reduce these pressure points, the podiatrist can tailor support soles to reduce pain and pressure points.
Back Foot problems due oncological treatments

Capsular inflammation at the toe joint

Capsular inflammation of the toe joint is described in medical terms as capsulitis. It is an inflammation or irritation of the toe joints. Under the ball of your foot are cups that are covered with joint capsules. These can become inflamed. Each joint is surrounded by a sturdy joint capsule that holds the bones together. The inflammation that causes the pain comes from the joint capsule. The symptoms often arise in people whose midfoot has sagged while walking or in people who have a hollow foot.

Causes capsular inflammation at the toe joint

Causes of capsular inflammation at the toe joint can be: more strain on the feet, abnormal position of the feet or wearing shoes that are too small or too narrow.

Symptoms of capsular inflammation of the toe joint

The symptoms to which you recognize a capsular inflammation of the toe joint are: pain on the ball of your foot, pain on your toe joints, trouble with stiffness in the morning, pain after a long load on your feet, red feet, stuffed feet, burning and stabbing pain and callus formation.

Treatment

The podiatrist examines your feet and discusses your daily load on your feet. This may have changed, so that you have the complaints to your toes. If there is a deviation at the foot, supporting soles can be made to measure. The soles ensure that you get support while standing and walking. The podiatrist can also give you shoe advice about the firmness and flexibility of the shoes.
Capsular inflammation at the toe joint

Deformation of the big toe

The deformation of the big toe is called hallux valgus in medical terms. It is a foot defect where the big toe points out and the first metatarsal points inwards. There is then a rotation in the toe. Often there is a lump in the large toe joint. The deformation of the big toe can cause complaints when walking.

Causes Hallux valgus

There are some causes that can cause the deformity of the big toe: abnormal position of the feet, wide position of the forefoot, heredity and shoes that do not fit properly.

Symptoms of Hallux valgus

Complaints that can occur due to deformation of the big toe are: pain in the forefoot, irritation of the toes, lump on the toe joint, calluses or corns and pain in the big toe.

Treatment of Hallux valgus

The podiatrist examines your foot. A changing position of your feet can cause you to move in a different way. A consequence of this change is that more callus formation can occur on your feet. To reduce these pressure points, the podiatrist can make tailor support soles to reduce pain and pressure points. The podiatrist can give you shoe advice so that the symptoms are less.

But other complaints can also arise, such as: swelling, feeling of pressure, a throbbing and warm feeling on the shins, strong pain when squatting and the overlapping of the legs. If you do not treat the complaint properly, the pain will not only arise during exercise, but also at rest.

Treatment Shin Splints

A podiatrist considers all facets of the problem. Not only the everyday movement pattern, but also sport-specific aspects are discussed. Due to the versatility of the problem, different therapies are possible. You should think of sports insoles, walking advice, shoe advice or temporary stools in combination with physiotherapy.
Back

Knee, hip and back pain

The feet are the basis of the body. Clients with foot complaints have the chance that they will also get other physical complaints on their knees, back or hips. A wrong posture or movement can result from a deviating position of the feet.

Causes and symptoms of knee, hip or back pain

Pain on the knee can occur due to an abnormal foot, wrong shoes, leg length difference, abnormal foot position, intensive movement, abnormal position of legs, overweight and intensive movement. The complaints of pain in the knee feel like a stabbing pain. The complaints arise while standing and walking and get worse as the load increases. The complaints of hip pain are a stabbing, burning and nagging pain on the front, side or back of the hip. The complaints of back pain are a stabbing and nagging pain, stiffness and problematic movement. They are especially present in the morning when getting up from bed. With more exercise, the symptoms become less.

Therapy

In a study the podiatrist can find out where the complaints come from. Based on the outcome of the examination, the podiatrist can correct a deviating foot position with insoles. This corrects the foot, so that the complaints are reduced.

Diabetic foot

Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease in which the body can no longer keep blood sugar levels in balance. The hormone insulin plays a key role in this. The body does not produce enough insulin. People with diabetes can suffer from a diabetic foot. This has to do with blood vessels and nerves that can damage the blood circulation in the feet.

Symptoms diabetic foot

You can recognize a diabetic foot by: wounds on the foot, less feeling in the feet, sore feet, tingling in the feet, cold feet, discolored feet or toes and swollen feet. Check your entire foot regularly for changes, discolorations and wounds. Make sure you have suitable shoes and that you have good blood levels. Do not walk barefoot and have a medical pedicure or podiatrist check your feet annually.

Diabetic foot treatment

Treating a diabetic foot is necessary to prevent complaints such as wounds, fissures and ulcers from getting worse. The podiatrist checks your skin on your feet at least once a year for temperature, calluses and pressure spots and the position of your feet. The podiatrist also examines the sensation in your feet, checks for good blood flow and checks whether the joints can move freely. After checking your feet, the podiatrist will advise you on foot care, shoes and any treatments. With existing wounds, the podiatrist, together with other specialists, will ensure that the wounds heal as quickly as possible.

Rheumatic foot

Rheumatism is a disease of joints, muscles and tendons. There are various

forms of rheumatism: inflammatory rheumatism, osteoarthritis and soaking

rheumatism. People diagnosed with rheumatism can suffer from a

rheumatic foot. Inflammation will then occur in and around your foot joint.

These inflammations cause wounds and pain to your feet.

Symptoms of rheumatic feet

You can recognize rheumatism feet by symptoms such as: changing position of feet and toes, crooked toes, distortions, rheumatism nodules, pain when walking and standing, red joints, fluid retention, fatigue and thinning skin. Rheumatism cannot be cured. You can do a number of things to relieve the symptoms: get suitable shoes, keep moving, wear cotton or wool socks without seams, dry your feet well after washing and keep toenails short.

Treatment rheumatism feet

Rheumatic feet are sensitive to inflammation. Have your feet checked

regularly by a podiatrist or medical pedicure with a foot score. A changing

position of your feet or toes can cause you to walk in a different way. A

consequence of this change in gait pattern is that more calluses can develop

on your feet. Toenails can also change because they do not get enough

space in the shoes that you wear. To reduce these pressure points, the

podiatrist can make tailor support soles.

Flat feet

Flat feet are also known as sagged feet. In medical terms, sagged feet are

also called pes planes. With flat feet, the arch of the foot has sunk to the

ground. Both the inside and outside of the foot are on the ground. You are

literally flat on the ground.

Causes flat feet

Sagged feet can occur after pregnancy, old age or heredity. There are two

types of sagged feet, namely the smooth flat foot and the stiff flat foot. With

the smooth flat foot you stand normally, but your feet sag. If you stand on

your toes, you can see a foot arch. This is because you tighten your muscles

in your foot well. With a stiff flat foot you do not tighten your muscles when

standing on tiptoe and your foot remains flat even in this situation.

Symptoms sagged feet

You can recognize sagging feet by pain complaints on the inside of the foot,

tired feet and ankles after walking and standing, knee complaints because

the ankle tilts inwards and a wrong position of the legs.

Flat feet in children

Children are born with flat feet. The first years of their life they keep flat feet.

Flat feet provide stability when learning to walk. As children get older, the

arch of the feet grows in the correct position.

Treatment flat feet

Flat feet can be treated well. The podiatrist examines your feet. If there is a

deviation at the foot, supporting soles can be made to measure. The soles

ensure that you get support while standing and walking. The podiatrist can

also give you shoe advice about the firmness and bending activities of the

shoes.

Foot problems due to oncological treatments

Patients with cancer can get foot complaints due to chemotherapy treatments. Oncological foot care is therefore important. The treatments can cause changes to the feet. The feet must be regularly screened for calluses and ingrown toenails during the treatments.

Foot complaints with cancer

The most common foot complaints due to cancer treatment are: hand-foot syndrome (tingling, numbness and swelling), skin rashes, dryness, changes to the skin and nails, changes in feeling in the feet, cold feet, sensitive skin.

Therapy

The podiatrist screens your feet for skin, nail and foot problems. Have your feet checked regularly by a podiatrist. A changing position of your feet can cause you to move in a different way. A consequence of this change is that more callus formation can occur on your feet. Toenails can also change. To reduce these pressure points, the podiatrist can tailor support soles to reduce pain and pressure points.

Capsular inflammation at the toe joint

Capsular inflammation of the toe joint is described in medical terms as capsulitis. It is an inflammation or irritation of the toe joints. Under the ball of your foot are cups that are covered with joint capsules. These can become inflamed. Each joint is surrounded by a sturdy joint capsule that holds the bones together. The inflammation that causes the pain comes from the joint capsule. The symptoms often arise in people whose midfoot has sagged while walking or in people who have a hollow foot.

Causes capsular inflammation at the toe joint

Causes of capsular inflammation at the toe joint can be: more strain on the feet, abnormal position of the feet or wearing shoes that are too small or too narrow.

Symptoms of capsular inflammation of the toe joint

The symptoms to which you recognize a capsular inflammation of the toe joint are: pain on the ball of your foot, pain on your toe joints, trouble with stiffness in the morning, pain after a long load on your feet, red feet, stuffed feet, burning and stabbing pain and callus formation.

Treatment

The podiatrist examines your feet and discusses your daily load on your feet. This may have changed, so that you have the complaints to your toes. If there is a deviation at the foot, supporting soles can be made to measure. The soles ensure that you get support while standing and walking. The podiatrist can also give you shoe advice about the firmness and flexibility of the shoes.
Back

Deformation of the big toe

The deformation of the big toe is called hallux valgus in medical terms. It is a foot defect where the big toe points out and the first metatarsal points inwards. There is then a rotation in the toe. Often there is a lump in the large toe joint. The deformation of the big toe can cause complaints when walking.

Causes Hallux valgus

There are some causes that can cause the deformity of the big toe: abnormal position of the feet, wide position of the forefoot, heredity and shoes that do not fit properly.

Symptoms of Hallux valgus

Complaints that can occur due to deformation of the big toe are: pain in the forefoot, irritation of the toes, lump on the toe joint, calluses or corns and pain in the big toe.

Treatment of Hallux valgus

The podiatrist examines your foot. A changing position of your feet can cause you to move in a different way. A consequence of this change is that more callus formation can occur on your feet. To reduce these pressure points, the podiatrist can make tailor support soles to reduce pain and pressure points. The podiatrist can give you shoe advice so that the symptoms are less.

Foot complaints

You have pain in your foot and you want to get rid of it. Podiatry Thailand deals with various problems with the feet. Common complaints of the foot are: hammertoes, pinched nerves in the forefoot, heel pain, Sesamoiditis, Tarsal tunnel syndrome, Achilles tendon injuries, calluses and corns, Shin Splints, knee complaints, hip complaints, back pain, diabetic foot, rheumatic foot, flat feet, foot problems due to oncological treatments, capsular inflammation of the toe joint and a crooked position of the big toe.

Hammer toes

A hammer toe is a deviation of a toe. The joint between the first and second toe is bent. This creates a curvature in the toe or toes and we call this the hammer shape.

Causes of hammer toes

There are several causes that can cause hammertoes: the crookedness of the big toe, a position deviation of the foot and a different gait pattern, tendons in the foot that are too short, a sagging foot, a toe that is longer than the other toes, wrong or too small shoes, flat feet or hollow feet, joint infections, a fracture in the foot or toe, old age, diabetes or rheumatism.

Symptoms and characteristics of hammer toes

There are several complaints that you may experience with hammer toes: the pain of one of the toes, stiffness and less mobile toes, difficulty walking and the development of a corn or callus.

Treatments for hammer toes

The solution depends on the type of hammer toe. There are both flexible hammer toes and rigid hammer toes. What is the difference between both types of hammer toes? Flexible hammer toes are bendable. Bendable means that the toes can be bent straight with the fingers. Flexible hammer toes are less painful and cause fewer walking problems. Flexible hammer toes can be treated well with arch supports and health sandals. It is possible to make an insole or health sandals to correct position deviations of the feet. Rigid hammer toes are stiff and cannot be straightened. The rigid hammer toes are painful and cause walking problems. Therapy of a rigid hammer toe is aimed at protecting the hammer toe and maintaining the current position of the toe.

Pinched nerves in the forefoot

Other names for a pinched nerve in the forefoot are morton's neuralgia or morton's neuroma. The nerves run from the metatarsal feet to the end of the toes. A nerve compression between the metatarsal bones can cause one of the nerves to thicken. Because you walk there is pressure on the metatarsal bones and in combination with the thickening of the nerve the pain arises. The pain usually develops between the third and fourth metatarsal.

Causes of a pinched nerve in the front feet

Causes that can cause pinched nerves in the forefoot are: very strong strain on the feet, minor damage, sagging feet, fractures, accidents with injuries, abnormal foot position, walking on high heels and wearing too tight shoes.

Symptoms of mortons neuralgia

Complaints of a pinched nerve in the forefoot are characterized by acute pain in the forefoot with radiating pain to the toes. The pain occurs during active movement. It causes cramp in the forefoot or a painful stab in the ball of the foot. By massaging the foot or taking off your shoe, the pain in your forefoot disappears. When the symptoms occur longer, the pain lasts longer.

Treatment of mortons neuroma

Treating a pinched nerve in your forefoot starts with adjustments to your shoes. By wearing wider shoes it is possible that the complaints in your forefoot will decrease or disappear. An insole or health sandals can help. An increase is made under the forefoot on the insole, which increases the space under the foot and gives the metatarsal feet more space. This causes less irritation and less pain in your foot.
Back

Heel pain

Heel pain is a collective name for foot complaints at the back or bottom of the foot. Heel pain is a common foot complaint and is experienced as a stabbing pain when walking. Over time, a nagging pain remains. This is due to overloading the heel.

Causes of pain in the heel

Causes of heel pain can be: sports (in particular running and jumping), prolonged use of wrong shoes, walking, overweight, short calf muscle, standing far too long, squatting for too long, flat feet, hollow feet, steep sole of the foot, crying atrophy, osteoarthritis, inflammation .

Complaints with heel pain

Pain in the heel can manifest itself in various symptoms: pain under the heel when standing up, standing and walking for a long time, feeling stiff or tense in the foot or feeling like a purse in the foot. Some forms of heel pain are: Calcaneodynia, heel spur and tendon inflammation. The fat pad, which is located under the heel, ensures good cushioning while standing and walking. But as we get older, this fat pad loses some of its function. This means that the fat pad becomes thinner and reduces the damping capacity, which can overload or irritate the heel bone. Then there arises Calcaneodynia. A heel spur is a bone tissue outgrowth on the heel bone in the form of a splinter. A heel spur is often located where the tendon plate has its attachment to the heel bone. This can be demonstrated with x-rays. If there are no abnormalities found on the X-ray, then the tendon plate is more irritated or inflamed. The pain area at a heel track can often be pointed with one finger. A tendon inflammation is very annoying. A tendon leaf runs towards the toes and fans out to the heads of the metatarsal bones. It supports the length vault of the foot at the level of the sole (plantar) and increases the tension of the foot during running and jumping as a tensioned band. A tendon inflammation, also called plantar fasciitis, is usually caused by an excessive pulling force on the attachment of the tendon plate under the foot that is often caused by an incorrect position of the feet.

Heel pain treatment

To get rid of your heel pain, insoles can provide extra support for the feet. The goal is to reduce the tension in the foot that leads to less painful fee
Back

Sesamoiditis

Sesamoiditis is a collective name for pain that you have at the level of the sesame bones and is a form of tendon inflammation. The sesame legs are two small bones that are attached to the long bending tendon of the big toe under the joint of your big toe. These sesame legs stabilize the tendon of the big toe. They help in carrying body weight and lift the bones of the big toe. If you suffer from Sesamoiditis, the pain concentrates at the level of the ball of the foot under the big toe. Most bones in a person's body are connected by joints. There are some bones that are an exception to this. These bones are in contact with tendons or are encapsulated by muscles. These are the Sesamids. The largest Sesamoid is the kneecap.

Causes

There can be various causes with Seamoiditis: overloading of the forefoot and big toe, a fracture, broken cartilage. Complaints and symptoms of Sesamoiditis Some symptoms you may experience with Sesamoiditis are: pain under the ball of the foot or toe, gradual pain, direct pain with a fracture, swelling, bruising, stretching and flexing of the big toe hurt.

Treatment Sesamoiditis

When treating sesamoiditis, a support sole is made to relieve the sesame bones in the ball of the foot. An elevation is made behind the head of the first metatarsal and further a recess is made for the sesamoids. If a support sole does not take away the pain, surgery is possible.
Back

Tarsal tunnel syndrome

Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a pinch of a nerve in the forefoot, toes or heel. In medical terms we call this the tibial nerve. The tibial nerve follows a long, tortuous route, from the back through the back of the leg to the ankle. Just above the ankle the nerve turns inwards towards the ankle. The tibial nerve lies there, along with an artery, between three tendons. All this is held tightly together by a sturdy band on the inside of the ankle. The nerve runs, as it were, through a tunnel with a few tendons and blood vessels; we call this the tarsal tunnel. When the nerve becomes trapped, the pain arises.

Causes Tarsal tunnel syndrome

In Tarsaal tunnel syndrome, the nerve is trapped in the tunnel. Because the nerve is surrounded by tendons of large muscles, it is usually one or more of these tendons that are thickened and require more space in the tarsal tunnel. This causes pressure or pinching of the nerve in the tarsal. There are several possible causes of nerve crushing: osteoarthritis, overloading of the foot, injury to the ankles and positional abnormalities of the foot.

Complaints with Tarsaal tunnel syndrome

Typical symptoms for this syndrome are a dull feeling in the foot, heel, stitches, tingling and burning. Lifting the foot and bending the ankle in often also cause pain. The complaints mainly occur in the evenings and at night, especially after long standing and running. While there are usually few complaints in the morning hours.

Treatment with Tarsal tunnel syndrome

Through research, the specialist can find out which structures cause the pinching of the nerve. Usually the cause is the deviation of the position of the foot and ankle, and especially the collapsing or kinking of this. The specialist can often correct this through arch supports. This reduces the pressure on the nerve in the tarsal tunnel and the nerve will be able to recover.
Back

Achilles tendon injuries

An Achilles tendon injury is an injury to the Achilles tendon that runs from the calf muscle to the heel. The Achilles tendon is the strongest and largest tendon in a human body. The power ensures that you can run or jump. The tendon can become inflamed or damaged by overloading the Achilles tendon.

Causes of Achilles tendon injuries

There are several possible causes for Achilles tendon injuries: overload of the tendon, reduced muscle strength, flexibility of the calf muscle, incorrect footwear, incorrect posture, walking on an unstable surface, swelling of Achilles tendon, red skin at the Achilles tendon, stiffness of the tendon after extreme relaxation or effort.

Complaints in Achilles tendon injuries

Achilles tendon injuries can be recognized by the following symptoms: often cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the back of your leg near your heel.

Achilles tendon treatments

Initially, medication can ensure that you have less pain. You will also have to take sufficient rest. By conducting research, the specialist can assess whether there is a deviation in body posture in the position of the feet. These can be corrected with insoles. What can also help is a relieving sole with a heel lift. This sole ensures that the tension on the Achilles tendon is reduced.

Heel pain by children

Morbus sever is an inflammation of the growth disc of

the heel bone. The growth disk is irritated by an

excessive pull on the Achilles tendon. The heel is the

rear part of the foot. In the growth phase that children

go through, the heel bone must grow in different

directions. The growth disc of the heel bone is located

at the rear of the heel bone. Just above it, the Achilles

tendon sticks and some fibers appear to extend below

the heel. This condition is common in children and

young adults who are growing fast.

Causes of heel pain in children

Causes of heel pain can be: intensive calf strain, spurt

of growth, shortened calf muscles, flat feet, hollow feet,

instability to the foot or ankle, ankle stiffness,

overweight, injury or an abnormal foot position.

Complaints about heel pain in children

Symptoms of Morbus sever resemble the

symptoms that adults experience with heel spur.

Some symptoms are: nagging pain, slight

swelling, pain on the bottom or back of the heel,

walking on toes, limping.

When children have pain in the heel, rest is

important. Make sure that the intensive load on

the feet is reduced or stopped. Pain is a signal to

keep calm. In the end, the heel pain will resolve

itself. Children between the ages of 14 and 15 no

longer grow explosively, so that the heel pain

disappears. After examination, a specialist can

determine whether a shoe insole is needed to

allow children to walk and exercise without pain.

An insole will be needed until the growth disc is

fully grown and the heel can bear the load. It is

important to act on time and to take the

complaints seriously. This way you prevent the

pain from getting worse.

Shin Splints

Shin splints is also called leg conjunctivitis or tibial irritation. It is an injury on the inside of the tibia that is caused by overloading. The continuous pulling of the muscles on the tibia can cause inflammation.

Causes of Shin Splints

Bone inflammation can be caused by poor shoes, a deviation in the position of the foot, difference in leg length, intensive exercise or being overweight. Athletes who have previously been diagnosed with Shin Splints have an increased chance of recurrence. Women are more sensitive to getting Shin Splints than men, because women have a different movement pattern, which puts more pressure on the tibia.

Complaints at Shin Splints

The most common complaint is a nagging pain on the inside of the shins, just above the ankle. Or higher, even up to the knee. But other complaints can also arise, such as: swelling, feeling of pressure, a throbbing and warm feeling on the shins, strong pain when squatting and the overlapping of the legs.
