I have a neuroma in one foot along with hammer toes which I am consulting a surgeon about next month. Also L5 which is out and slightly tilted – McKenzie technique has really helped me with that. I’ve also had patellar femoris . Try to balance my workouts and listen to my body but after 25 years in the biz things over use injuries seem to occur. Would like to know if others are in the same situation.
Listening to the body is a big one, but being faithful to rehab exercises. Foot exercises: bring a towel to you with your toes, lift the towel, pick up a bucket with you toes. Stretch the toes or buy “yogi toes” to help stretch. Pelvic tilts while lying on the floor and foot marches while lying on the floor. Twists from the floor. Lots of lateral motion to counteract all the forward motion. Finding an intuitive yoga teacher and going to classes faithfully. Swimming. I am in my 50’s and run and bike each 4 times weekly along with my own weight training, working out with clients, walking with clients, running, with clients, running boot camps, etc., and I keep myself flexible and fluid with yoga and swimming. And, of course, there is REST! 🙂
