The feet were designed to absorb shock with landing and then to become a propulsive mechanism. In order for this to occur, one will pronate with landing and then re supinate with push off. In order to accomplish this, it requires the bones in the foot, legs, and hips to rotate in and out with exact timing, trajectory and symmetry of motion.
Fibromas are rubbery like bumps on the foot. Similar to a ball of scar tissue. They can be hereditary but many times they form from a “hyper repair” response to micro damage to tendons or fascia with daily activity.
Heel spurs typically are caused by a long term strain on the plantar fascia, achilles tendon and muscles of the foot. This is especially common in runners and people who suffer from obesity and foot imbalances.
A neuroma is a benign tumor of the nerve. However, in most cases, it is an inflammation of the nerve with a thickening of nerve tissues that may develop in various areas of the foot. Most common between the 3rd and 4th toes.
Shin splints are a type of “overuse injury” to the legs. It is not the shin bone fracturing or splintering. It is actually the muscle pulling away excessively from its attachment to the bone.
Name the tendon and add “itis” to it. Example, tibialis anterior tendonitis, peroneal tendonitis, etc. All are an inflammation of the tendon. Although it can come about from overuse, there typically is an abnormal mechanical reason why it occurs.
