Your opinions please…



  • lol.
    good to have a podiatrist on here i guess lol :)



  • Do I detect a touch of disbelief there Blaze? Did you know what a podiatrist was? If anyone has a foot related problem I'll be happy to give advice!



  • Me? :o Sarcastic? :o Cheeky? :o

    Never :lol:

    Yes i do know what your profession is. I can't spell it lol. And i have a knee problem and atm for some annoying reason i keep getting what i think are like spasms just above my knee.

    It looks like a speaker - the skin goes in and out.

    :lol: Oh yeh - since we are saying what we do:

    I am a student - not learning about feet :lol:



  • Locker165 - what is your take on my toe problem then?
    (The subject of this thread) It would be nice to get some free, professional advice for once 8)



  • I reckon it's fecked! How professional is that? To tell you the truth, I haven't got a clue! Sorry. Without seeing or hearing it, it's hard to tell. what I do know is he shouldn't have pulled it so hard. Ridiculous.



  • :P yep probably fecked!
    Locker165 in Cali that would be called "Hella Proffesional" :P
    I might hit you up for some foot info sometime?

    bod8, i preform a shiatsu technique, where you pull each toe of a client.
    this often causes cracking AND it often doesn't. Depends on the client. It disracts the joint, or stretches the muscles/tendons and usually feels great pop or not.
    I love having this done to me also.
    Maybe what you need is another round of toe pulling.
    no joke.
    It is a therapeutic thing to have done either way and is perfectly safe.
    H* * l there is nothing to it, you could have a friend do it. And yes you could do it to yourself, i have.
    But it's def not the same.

    PS… bod8 wrote: 'Cheers, I've already seen another specialist who seems really good, and he said the clicking/cracking is "normal".

    your def NOT blaze he would never write that, Sorry for ever thinking that.



  • What would i never say?



  • Locker165 i have a riddle/question I can't figure out, for you. And you 2 Blaze.

    How can the 2 opposing actions of the ankle, Dorsiflexion(taking your foot off the gas pedal) and Plantar Flexion(pushing your foot down on a gas pedal) both be Flexions ? Shouldn't one be an extension?



  • Blaze you would never say that the doctor said the clicking was NORMAL.



  • Flexion? If it is what i think it is, maybe because you are manipulating the ankle to a certain way - not just pointing foot down like in ballet.

    Also, one question for you MC, how comes a short while after cracking your neck it feels really stiff and nasty?



  • Flexion in anatomy is when the joint angle decreases. The ankle can flex both ways on the sagittal plane. Therefore dorsiflexion (up) and plantarflexion (down). Both times the angle between the ankle and foot decreases. Does that help? Thought not!

    do you think maybe he was a "dodgy" osteopath then? (i remembered, he was an osteopath)
    thanks



  • huh?
    well thats gives me something to chew on
    I'm still a little confused
    how come w the toes then it's flexion and extension

    thanks

    Or he was human and made a mistake?



  • yeah i guess.

    every time i think about it i get worked up because it was my right toe he was meant to be seeing but he randomly pulled my left toe without explanation, and thats now my main crack!

    but as you say, people make mistakes and i might just have to live with that :) lol



  • Sue him?



  • i have no firm evidence though i guess… i can't just say "he made my toe like this" without any proof, can i? :?



  • Well here it is in points:

    1: You had no problem before - if you have been to doctor before and after this will prove it.

    2: He did something he wasn't meant to - he was only meant to work on the right foot.

    3: If it felt weird or nasty as he was doing it - he wasn't doing it right.



  • that's given me something to think about, cheers :)



  • No problem
