Patient :Went running the other day...after bout two days after the inner part of my left foot and bottom of my foot started to hurt and looked swollen....I would say it is around the midfoot....I have no pain or discomfort while resting...but I can feel it as I walk...feels good to massage out...small discomfort when pressing on it...trying to figure out if I strained something
Symptoms: Mild discomfort at site...can walk jump run etc with mild discomfort...localized to middle part of inside of left foot and towards bottom of foot...by arch
Thanks for posting your query at ATD.
Medial longitudinal arch or the arch on the inner aspect of foot can get strained after running or unaccustomed activities.
Best treatment plan is RICE therapy- give rest to the limb and refrain from weigt bearing as much as possible, intermittent ice packs to the affected area, compression with creppe bandage after ice application. If the swelling is more intense then use of external splintage rather than going for ice therapy.
Keep the affected limb elevated and actively move the toes. You should also take OTC available anti inflammatory medication to settle down the inflamed tissues.
Feel free to discuss further.
