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?

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?
