Katherine has a bruising sensation on her foot

Oct 26th, 2015

I’ve had a bruising sensation on the top of my right foot for the past week.

I haven’t dropped anything on top of it and it is painful when I put pressure on my foot.

Any idea what could cause this pain?

Thanks for your help.

The Guru Responded:

Hi Katherine


Most common thing is having shoes which are too tight – they compress a small cutaneous (skin) nerve.


When you load up your foot or pole it, it splays slightly and compresses the already miffed of nerve giving you the sensation.


Give it a good couple of weeks to allow the nerve to settle, try to avoid too much compression through the top of your foot….tricky with some type of footwear.
