Chronic swelling and pain on ankle…flat feet?

July 24, 2015

Hello everyone, my first post and I was really hoping you guys can shed some light on me here or steer me in the right direction, I would HIGHLY appreciate it. I am 30 years old, when I was a kid I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease known as FMF, it causes inflammation throughout the body and symptoms usually include systemic pain such as abdominal cramping, fever, and often foot or knee swelling. During the late 80’s-90’s the medication did not work to help control this condition but much as changed now.

I saw an ortho like a day or 2 later….they basically looked at my xrays from the ER and told me I would need a cast or boot…..obviously i thought i was dreaming because it didnt seem real..dr said he couldn’t force me to get a cast but recommended i cast it for 4 weeks NWB .

Fallen Arch contributing to Sciatica

July 15, 2015

I have noticed recently that my arches under load ar much fallen Im a 52 year old male Strongman competitor so i do put extreme loads through my feet which may well be a contributing factor to my fallen archjes However, my concern is the sciatic pain i get, it has been treated from the top (back) down rather than from the foot up, and i am now thinking its possible from the foot up that needs treating I have tight calves and have recently started on stretching both calf muscles, i also have piriformis tightening which again may be caused by the fallen arch and pronation in the foot, rather than from Piriformis syndrome or other upper back issue I was thinking maybe the best option was to look at using some sort of Arch suppoert in the first instance and then looking at exercises to sart raising the arch naturally What would be the suggested route?? would my Plan work, using the support whilst walking/training then working on building arch strength like any other exercise i would do??
