    Foot injury

    Today, after Muay Thai (My BJJ school brings in a guy once a week), I noticed that my foot hurt.

    I have constructed a handy diagram to pinpoint the location:


    It didn't hurt that much, so I continued on to BJJ.

    After class ended, my foot began hurting more and more. After walking a block, going up some stairs and showering, it hurt so much that I couldn't put my full weight on the ball of my foot.

    I got home and have been icing it on and off. I can move my toes up and down, but I've been limping to avoid placing pressure on it.

    I am wondering if this is a common injury, and if so what I could do to speed along recovery (and whether I could work around it to keep training).

    Update: After much icing and ibuprofen, it feel better and I can walk fairly well.

    I'm still wondering how this happened(or what exactly the injury was), so I can avoid repeatedly getting injured in the same way.

    I severly messed up my foot and just let it go for about 6 weeks. I finally went to the pediatrist and got a shot of cortisone and felt great afterwards.

    However was yours a muscle, tendon, ligament or bone injury?

    Where you need to be careful is where all those small bones are at the top of the foot meeting the foot to the leg:


    and all the long thin bones that construct the top portion of the foot.

    You have a large amount of weight being supported by relatively thin bones, you are striking with a large amount of force on something that is kind of brittle (like your hands) comparitively speaking when you look at a femur bone.

    I have taken to taping my foot and using Tiger Balm to help loosen before training.

    I don't know. How would I determine that?

    It feels like the pain is around the "lisfranc joint" above my big toe on that diagram.

    Whatever it was, it couldn't have been to severe as I can walk pretty normally today.

    Well if it was a bone problem, it would still be swollen and you would have a hard time putting weight on it.
