Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, exactly what kind of injury did you experience before? Have you ever seen a doctor after experiencing this injury? Is there a specific treatment that the doctor recommends to treat the injury?
Injury to the back of the big toe can be a mild condition, but it can also be dangerous. This injury can be limited to causing mild pain, but it can also limit movement for a long time.
The pain and weakness you feel in the back of your foot at this time may be related to injuries you experienced before, for example if it causes ligament rupture, leg fracture, muscle cramps, and so on. However, pain and weakness may actually arise due to other causes that are not necessarily directly related to injury, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis, gout arthritis, stroke, pinched nerves, peripheral artery disease, deep vein thrombosis, and so on.
It is better if you do not just massage the sore leg without examining it further. Massaging the injured leg can make the tissue damage worse and harder to heal.
Check your complaint directly to the doctor so that a more in-depth examination can be done, including through X-rays, CT scans, or other supporting tests. In this way, what kind of treatment is right to be done can be identified properly, for example by administering drugs, physiotherapy, or maybe even surgery.
In the meantime, apart from stopping massaging your sore feet, you should also do these tips:
Compress using ice cubes on the sore leg. Limit excessive movement using the leg first. Wear comfortable and loose trousers Make sure you don't use narrow or high-heeled shoes. Elevate sore feet while sleeping Apply pain relievers (for example those containing paracetamol) to reduce pain Hopefully help yes ..
