Pain on top of foot?


Recommended Posts

I hope this is an OK question to ask.

I have had irritating pain on the top of my foot since increasing my technique and pointe classes, a pain I never had when I danced younger. I feel in the most when I point my foot and it's on the top of my foot. This morning I woke up and it hurt to just walk, so I have started icing it.

Has anyone else had a problem similar to this? Are there muscles / tendons on the top of the foot that can become injured?

Yes. You could also have a stress fracture, so it is time to see a doc. Hope you feel better soon!

The attached thread shares similar experiences from some of the rest of us. In most cases it seemed we all had to go to the doctor to get to the root cause.




I've never tried to post a link to another thread so I hope this works.
