I'm a teen and have played quite a lot of sport in my younger years but recent years only done horse riding.
I'm getting quite a bit of pain within my feet and ankles. My tendons feel tight and it hurts to move them. It usually occurs at the top front of my ankle and the top of my foot by my big toe. Now and then i get it under my feet and in my knees.
I cannot straighten my legs as it hurts to do so, therefore cannot touch my toes from a sitting or standing position without bending my knees.
My mom has advised me to go to the doctors but i feel I'd be wasting their time through them not being able to do anything so wondered if you guys had any opinions or ideas?
hi, do you have access to an indoor pool? when I had achilles tendon reconstruction I did water walking so I was thinking being as young as you are you could definitely do some swimming and get loosened up. I would talk to a dr. though maybe get a physical therapy slip and insurance may pay for the pool access. just a thought, cathy
