Foot Syndromes

 



NUMB TOES/BURNING FEET

Numbness or burning of the feet is most commonly caused by compression of the nerves between the metatarsals (small bones under the ball of the foot). The most common causes are:

  • tight shoes
  • road vibration
  • too much climbing (which puts continuous pressure on the bottom of the foot) Riders with high arches or who overpronate are at risk as they experience more pressure on the ball of the foot.

    WHAT CAN YOU DO?

    Quick fixes might include:

    • moving your cleats 2 - 3 mm towards the rear of your shoe
    • loosening your foot straps
    • a different insole (either thinner if your shoe is too tight or more cushioned if you have room in the shoe)or custom footbed
    • a different sock (same comments as for the insole)
    • examine your shoe for irregular seams or straps/buckles that might be pressing against the outer edge of the forefoot
    • a wider (in the forefoot) pair of shoes or have a cobbler stretch yours

      Q.I started cycling about 3 months ago. In those 3 months I have racked up 593 miles. I ride almost everyday. I just completed 31 yrs but in good shape (thanks to the Marines). On the last ride (45 Miles) I did a few days ago at less than a few hundred yards away from reaching home I experienced a severe pain on the outer side of my right foot; it was so painful I couldn't walk. I took a couple pain meds and soaked it in hot water. I have rested now for two days but I still feel soreness when I put pressure on it. Should I be concerned? this is my average distance and I have experienced numbness when I first started but nothing like this. I have also completed an 80 mile ride in about 3hrs and didn't feel this type of pain. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Ed.

      A.My suspicion is that this is a combination of several issues. First, the numbness that you noticed suggests that your shoes may not fit as well as they might, or that the way your sole hits the shoe is putting pressure on one of the plantar nerves. Hot foo/numb foot is a common problem for some cyclists, and can occur even with good fitting shoes - being related to how the pressure of pedalling is distributed across the bottom of your foot. Add in poorly fitting shoes or a foot that needs an insert or custom footbeds to even out the pressure and you are on your way. And it sounds as if you have a fairly aggressive training program (remember the 10% per week increase in training per week that I mentioned as being the best to minimize overuse injuries?) and the problem is aggravated. Back off a little on the riding and consider an insert (custom or otherwise). Let me know what happens.

      ADJUSTING CLEATS

      The position of your cleats on your cycling shoes determines the comfort of your feet, ankles, knees, hips and back. Once you clip into your pedals, the path that your leg "tracks" during the pedal stroke is locked in, and misaligned cleats send stress up from your foot up your leg to your low back with every pedal str...
