Hi. Today I’m going to talk about numb andtingling feet that occur during exercise. So what we’re talking about is often numbnessthat often occurs under the ball of the foot and up near the toes while bicycling. It oftenhappens on an elliptical machine; less commonly it happens during running and walking typeof activities. So what has happened here is a condition called compressive neuropathy.If you look at this foot, we’re looking at the nerves on top of the foot here. Thereis a actually a similar set of nerves right on the bottom of the foot and if there’s excessivepressure on these nerves that can cause numbness and cause pressure to those nerves, damageto the nerves, and then numbness from that
point of irritation forward. So the nice thingis this is usually pretty easy to treat. The first thing we want to do is take thepressure off this area. I think the first critical thing to say about this is make sureyour shoes fit and make sure there’s plenty of room for you, especially on bike shoeswhich tend to run kind of narrow. You want to make sure there’s no compression this way.So always buy your bike shoes at the end of the day. It’s actually best to go for a longbike ride and then go buy shoes. The guy in the shoe store may not like you so much, butyou’ll get a better fitting shoe. The other option is to try on the shoes with two pairof socks. That way you can actually start
your ride wearing two pair of socks and thenhalfway through the ride if your feet start to get numb, you can take off one pair asyour feet start to swell. So that takes care of the swelling issue. Second thing we want to do is transfer pressureoff of this area. Some simple ways to do that, both that you can try yourself and if that’snot enough, you can come in and see us and we can do a better job at, usually, firstthing is to use an arch support in your athletic shoes whether they be bicycle shoes, againor running shoes you might use on an elliptical machine. The idea is that you want an orthoticthat grabs the arch extremely tight, because
we’re trying to transfer pressure off of thisarea and get it onto the ball of the foot. That’s what takes pressure off of these nerves.So this is one of my favorite arch supports you can buy overthecounter. You can finda list of our favorite ones on our website. Go to the website, click on quot;Self Carequot; andlook for numb feet or tingling feet and you can find a list of everything we recommendfor this problem. You can even get some sandals, the Vionic sandals that I often recommendthat have some good arch support in them. You can wear those around the house, takepressure off the area. But again, the key is to have that arch support in your athleticshoes.
If the overthecounter supports are not enoughthen you can use a custom orthotic. The advantage of the custom orthotics is they will conformmuch, much tighter to the arch of the foot. In fact they should be air tight to the archof the foot in order to transfer pressure from here back to here. This is one we mightuse in an athletic shoe or running shoe. The ones for bicycle shoes tend to be somewhatsmaller since there’s not as much volume in those shoes. The key here is do not live withthis problem. It’s an easy one to treat in most cases. If you are in our area, make anappointment. Make sure that when you come in, to bring your cycling shoes or bring whatevershoes that you’re having trouble with. Bring
any arch supports or orthotics you currentlyare using, and we’ll take a look at everything and give you ideas of what you can do to getrid of this problem. In the meantime, if you want to try treating yourself, go to the website,click on quot;Self Carequot; and look for tingling feet or numb feet.
