tennis foot injury

Posted by RobertB on 2/24/03 at 10:30 (110585)


My problem arises from when i was playing tennis last Wednesday and i jumped up and when i came down i landed on my left foot pretty hard. There was an instant pain and i could hardly walk since then im able to walk but a mild pain is still there whenever i put weight on my foot. I cant run at all either. Can someone please tell me what might be wrong with my foot and what i should do to treat it?

Is the pain at the bottom of the heel or in the back of the heel? Regardless, no doctors on this site can treat you over the computer so I would strongly recommend that you be seen by a doctor if your pain is still present.

I agree with Dr. Wander, seeing a doctor is important, if this was someting simple the pain would of gone away by now. The doctor may need to x-ray your foot to rule out a fracture. Please don't delay it could turn into a chronic non-healing problem.
