Good afternoon. A few weeks ago I used shoes with thin heel cushions. After that day my ankles hurt, now the pain is gone but if held it feels like pins and needles. How to treat it how yes. thank you
Hello Agustine, thank you for asking.
In the barefoot condition, human body weight rests on the entire width of your feet. When wearing high-heeled footwear, weight will be more concentrated in a small spot on the heel. Similarly, if thin footwear. The heel that receives body weight will easily feel pain if the base is not soft enough and thick enough. This is also exacerbated for example by conditions of obesity, a history of injuries to the heel, inflammation of the joints, tendon injuries, and so on. The heel can experience an inflammation known as plantar fascitis. Symptoms are generally in the form of pain such as pins or needles or pins and needles.
Use soft and rather thick footwear. Limit the use of high heels in the long run. Avoid first doing strenuous activities that require heel support, such as lots of jumping sports. Warm or cold compresses on the affected area. Visit a doctor if your pain or tingling gets worse. The doctor may need to take x-rays and prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs.
Hopefully this short answer can be useful. Regards.
