Morton’s Neuroma is a condition most frequently diagnosed among athletes. Identified by a thickening of the nerve tissues found in the ball of the foot, Morton’s neuroma most commonly affects the nerve that travels between the third and fourth toes.

The thickened nerve tissue may be caused by irritation, trauma from injury, or constant pressure on the nerves of the toes. Morton’s neuroma has also been found to occur more in women than in men. This condition is commonly known to be caused by improperly fitting shoes or shoes with high heels or pointed toes. This type of footwear often compresses the nerves in the toe area, making these become numb. 

Wearing improper footwear during strenuous physical activities, such as running, adds stress to the toes, which may eventually cause foot complications to develop. There are no visible signs for Morton’s neuroma, such as an outward lump. Common symptom of the condition include a burning sensation, pain, and tingling in the ball of the foot that travels into the toes. The pain usually may intensify when wearing shoes or when participating in physical activity. Although considered rare, the symptoms of Morton's neuroma may continue during night or with rest.

If an individual experiences these symptoms, the first option to take should be getting the appropriate footwear. With the right type of shoe, any unnecessary pressure will be minimized. Lifestyle changes may also be recommended in order to avoid further injury to the foot. People affected with Morton’s neuroma should rest their feet as much as possible to avoid nerve irritation.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
