I had a traction force on my ankle two years ago, and because of the following prolonged ankle pain I had MRI and was diagnosed with ligament injury in my ankle.
Since this traction occasion, I also started having paresthesia symptoms in my foot. Especially after walking with shoes, nowadays with other exercising also. Annoying tightness around the foot like some inner band tightening it, with feeling of the foot being numb. At that time the diagnosing focused only on MRI and this symptom was not well comprehended.
I´ve had physiotherapy (podiatrist) for my ankle, but because of this foot symptom becoming more chronic during the rehabilitation, I stopped going to this therapist. It seems he doesn´t have so much views on this symptom and hasn´t been talking or answering about the nerve problems that I myself have been concerned of.
I´m finally getting an ENMG examination done after a month. I hope it´s not an absolute nerve damage, but more functional nerve symptom... So it could still be tackled by more conservative therapy than surgery.
If the latter, I´m already pondering between three therapy options to continue with:
-omt-physiotherapist with knowledge of neurodynamic testing and exercises (sliders and tensioners)
So I wonder if anyone has had help with paresthesia symptoms by some form of therapy? Or has some views of which way to go?
Thanks if anyone has any point of view!
