pain
« on: March 15, 2013, 04:20:05 AM »
So I have recently started walking after being in a knee brace for three months and was wondering is it normal to have pain on the bottom of your foot when you haven't walked for a while. And will breaking scar tissue make a cracking knuckle sound around the knee. Anyone have similar experiences and will it go away.

Hi Eddie,

Would you clarify please-were you completely non-weight bearing or is it that you haven't walked any significant distance for a while?  If you have been completely off you have lost some muscle(which helps cushion your foot) and probably had things tighten up as well.  have you tried stretching it out or having a chiropractor loosen up your foot?  You might start with those.  If the pain hits you like a sledge hammer that first step getting out of bed and then after a few steps subsides to a miserable dull ache, it could be plantar fascitis.  Try icing throughout the day, it really helps.

Good luck.  Hope someone has some help with the scar tissue question.

Hi Linda,

I had surgery on my knee on Nov. 28 after i fractured it on a little motorcycle accident. So I was non-weight bearing for 1 month and a half and was walking for half a month... bad idea so i had to have surgery on Jan. 16 to fix my knee so I was non weight bearing for a month. I got the okay from my os to start walking at 3 weeks post op. But didn't do it because i was scared to injure it again. I started walking march 14 And I only feel the pain after a few feet of walking. And thank you for your replying to my question.
