Question by philasophos01: How does one increase pronation (in other words, stop supination) of the foot when walking/running?
Help! My feet supinate too much! (that means instead of rolling in and putting pressure on the arch, they roll out and put pressure on the outer foot and metatarsals!) I have a very high arch. I researched shoes thoroughly and determined through a mix of online reviews & wearing different sneakers around the house that the Asics Gen Nimbus VIII was the best. Now, after only a few weeks, the pain in the outside of my foot is as bad as ever. Does anyone know how to improve this? Also what insoles, etc would be good? Please help. Thanks!
Answer by silverbelle
hope this helps…try yoga. it helps with balance. my pinkie toes always turned in but after weeks of yoga practice my feet and toes straightened out and my arches grew very strong. it definitely helped in other areas as well.

Question by notenlightenedyet: I seek a therapist for anger management and anger therapy. I have PTSD from childhood trauma. Where to start?
Answer by nurse_kiddy
if you have insurance right on your insurance card there should be a number to the mental health department through them. it is required that you contact them if you require any treatment so they can direct you where to go, they have their own department.
if you do not have insurance or plan to pay out of pocket then start at the phone book or talk to any friends to see who they go to.
good luck to you and take care

Question by : Frightened of pain management! Searched the web for help?
Why did I need a referral to pain management?
This whole thing has me shaken. My dr decided to go back to urgent care basis and stop treating regular chronic patients. I am in physical therapy, use a tens unit,have my PT assessment , which discovered MORE than the MRI revealed, have my MRI results showing the damage from an accident over a yr ago. Perforated discs All my dr records and ive been on the same scrpt for pain and anxiety for 4 yrs. Anxiety 7 yrs. Well I got the paperwork for this pain place and it said
Dr will not be taking over ANY prescript from your pcp or referring doctor. Any being underlined. My medical records are clean, there is legitimate pain that keeps me from the life my children deserve. This feels like it could shake me up. Why would they have that in there. Does it mean I’ll be left high and dry? I don’t know what to make of this. I’ve always been timid with the dr, but now, I’m terrified. 33 f
Answer by susan
I’m sorry that you are so scared of a new situation. You will NOT be left high and dry. It is standard for all pain specialists to say they will not renew scripts because it weeds out a huge number of people who are trying to get meds for addiction problems not pain. This is not addressed at you. Actually a pain specialist can be your best choice. They treat the pain as a problem in itself rather than a symptom. They know that it is making your life be less than it can and they aggressively “treat” it not hide it with meds. Write down all your concerns and give that to the Dr if you are nervous talking. Do you have someone who can go with you? It really helps to have another set of ears to understand all the Dr is saying. Drs do not mind having another person to help you. Take a deep breath and try to relax. I think that you will find this Dr can really help you.

Question by cerbberi: Can Osgood-Schlatter disease occur in a 5 year old? What else can cause knee pain in children?
My 5 year old daughter has been complaining about persistent knee pain for more than a month. Motrin keeps it under control, but she’s been on Motrin 24 hours a day for weeks, and when it wears off in the middle of the night she wakes up crying from the pain. Blood tests, X-rays and bone scans have both been conducted and there are no signs of fractures, infections, abcesses, Lyme disease, tumors, leukemia, or other obvious causes of the pain.
A friend pointed out that his teenage son had very similar symptoms, which turned out to be Osgood-Schlatter disease. My brief research all indicates that this is a problem that typically occurs in adolescence. Has anyone experienced such an issue with a younger child?
Has anyone else experienced this with their children? What did it turn out to be?
Answer by Ervin Downs
A normal lyme test you typical dr use’s is called the Elisa test. Its a joke.
I would not rule out lyme..please trust me on this
i would get a lyme test done at a real lyme testing lad
I would probably go with Igenex

Some cool upper foot pain images:
NYC – Metropolitan Museum of Art – Seated Jain Tirthankara
Image by wallyg
Seated Jain Tirthankara
India (Gujarat or Rajasthan).
Solanki period, 11th century.
This superb white marble sculpture represents one of the twenty-four tirthankaras ("crossers of the ford") or jinas ("victorious ones", i.e., conquerors of desire) of the Jain religion. Tirthankaras, who were not deities but mortals whose ascetic lives set an example for worshippers hoping to attain release from the cycles of existence.
Like Buddha, Mahavira, the founder of Jainism, practiced meditation in the yogic tradition and sought release from the suffering and pain of earthly existence by the denial of desires. There is very little physical difference between representations of seated Buddhas and Jain saints (tirthankaras) in Indian art. They both appear in the yogic lotus position and both display markings appropriate for enlightened beings: the serene face; the ushnisha; the elongated earlobes, which symbolize princely jewelry once worn but now abandoned; and the symbolically perfect body held up and filled with prana. The auspicious srivatsa mark on the chest, and the lack of an urna indicate that this figure is a Jain "saint," or tirthankara (Crosser of the Ford or Conqueror of Desire)..
Representations of Jain figures follow a very conservative iconographic and artistic tradition. Since the inactive, almost nude figure with passive expression does not lend itself to dramatic sculptural interpretation, the burden of aesthetic success rests on the skillful and sensitive rendition and manipulation of simple forms into a well-proportioned, visually pleasing sculptural unity. The focus of worship in a Jain temple was an image of a tirthankara like this one, which probably was placed in the temples inner sanctum. Numerous smaller surrounding shrines would have contained other tirthankara images.
Purchase, Florence and Herbert Irving Gift, 1992 (1992.131)
The Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s permanent collection contains more than two million works of art from around the world. It opened its doors on February 20, 1872, housed in a building located at 681 Fifth Avenue in New York City. Under their guidance of John Taylor Johnston and George Palmer Putnam, the Met’s holdings, initially consisting of a Roman stone sarcophagus and 174 mostly European paintings, quickly outgrew the available space. In 1873, occasioned by the Met’s purchase of the Cesnola Collection of Cypriot antiquities, the museum decamped from Fifth Avenue and took up residence at the Douglas Mansion on West 14th Street. However, these new accommodations were temporary; after negotiations with the city of New York, the Met acquired land on the east side of Central Park, where it built its permanent home, a red-brick Gothic Revival stone "mausoleum" designed by American architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mold. As of 2006, the Met measures almost a quarter mile long and occupies more than two million square feet, more than 20 times the size of the original 1880 building.
In 2007, the Metropolitan Museum of Art was ranked #17 on the AIA 150 America’s Favorite Architecture list.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art was designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1967. The interior was designated in 1977.

Question by : Is it possible for a profoundly deaf person to be bad at lip reading?
Let’s say someone went deaf at a young age, like four, because of a head trauma or an illness. Would it be possible for them to be horrible at lip reading, like to the point where they can’t pick up 90% of what people say?
Or would it have to be in rare circumstances, like they hardly ever had to lip read because they were always around other deaf people growing up?
Answer by The Answer Man
Yes it’s very possible. *cough* Helen Keller *cough*
