Hello doctor,

I am a football player and I play wide receiver. Since last week I have been having muscle pain in the inside of my left foot. I cannot fully move my foot up and down. I tried ice and resting but it comes back when I start running. What should I do?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From your description, you may have Tibialis posterior tendonitis or plantar fascia strain. Assuming you have not gone over on your foot and sustained no direct trauma. What sort of level do you play football and do you have a team physio or access to a doctor? Ideally, have yourself examined if not I will recommend you to cut down on your sports till the pain goes away completely. Gradually return to your sports and if pain returns consult a doctor and get an MRI scan done. Take antiinflammatory tablets and ice it in the meantime.
