    I have had foot pain for six years and it’s been told that it’s arthritis. I was told by the doctor that I will be normal in a couple of months. But even after four months, I still have pain and swelling. One of my friend had done the chiropractic treatment from a clinic at Mississauga. Should I try steroids to get rid of the pain? Any suggestions regarding this will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I do not have the remotest idea what to suggest based on the extraordinary lack of information you have provided.

    Hi, you can think of another treatments but not steroid. Because it can be harmful.

    Do not use steroids. For pain management, a typical anti-inflammatory like Advil or ibuprofen is sufficient along side care and maintenance of the foot. I work as an advisor for a medical company and recommend cold to the painful region of the foot and then once pain has subsided you can stimulate the blood flow to that area. By doing this you are opening up the blood vessels increasing the blood flow which supplies nutrients and oxygen to the targeted area. This reduces pain in the joints, ligaments, tendons and relaxes the muscles.

    Do not try steroids unless your doctor recommends, prescribes and administers them for you.

    The only way that you can prevent this from happening, is by taking control of what shoes you wear and veering away from heavy objects that you might drop on your feet.

    Shoes play an important role for prevention; get shoes that are preferably hard or at least not too tight or too loose. When you pick shoes, make sure that it fits your feet perfectly and is designed for your feet structure to avoid any possibilities of injuries or pain.

    Also keep in mind that when it comes to an office setting, there is no work place where an employee is immune to foot injuries. However, as mentioned above, the hazards of these will depend on the working environment and the tasks that you have to do everyday.

    The first step towards prevention aside from picking the right shoes will be to identify these hazards and develop a strategy on how to avoid relevant threats around your work place.

    As such, these should be assessed no matter how safe you think your office may seem. The dangers and possibilities still lurk around every corner, so always be aware of your surroundings.

    Hi, I have a big problem regarding with my foot. Every morning I was doing my regular exercise now I can't even go for a jog because I need to work early. I am suffering from foot pain. I can't even walk long distances and can't stand long for a couple of minutes. It gets numb and I'm collapsing. I've heard about this item D'oxyva (deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator), does anyone here know this item? I just want to give a try. Thanks.

    Hi Jessie,

    I saw an ad and reviews about that product Doxyva too. Im curious if it is effective. I would like to know more about it from users.

    Hi Jessie,

    My uncle is using d'oxyva for his Rheumatoid arthritis for I believe 1 year now, to be honest I thought that this is another useless product that my uncle purchased for his arthritis but after few months I already see the difference, before he spends more time sitting on the couch and watching TV shows because he's having hard time walking, now he spends most of his time with my cousins outdoors camping and interacting with his old friends, I got curious so I did some research and it shows that d'oxyva actually helps to improve our blood circulation as poor circulation is often a cause of chronic pain. Poor circulation is usually caused by tobacco use, diabetes, or various autoimmune diseases (diseases where the body makes antibodies that fight against itself) such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.

    Another common cause of poor circulation is reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), also known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). This is a problem of both circulation and nerve transmission because painful nerve transmissions cause the blood vessels to become narrower. The narrowing prevents enough oxygen and nourishment from getting to the part of the body that is affected

    So basically, d'oxyva uses c02 treatment which trigger the Bohr effect the Bohr Effect allows for enhanced unloading of oxygen in metabolically active peripheral tissues such as exercising skeletal muscle. Increased skeletal muscle activity results in localized increases in the partial pressure of carbon dioxide which in turn reduces the local blood pH. Because of the Bohr Effect, this results in enhanced unloading of bound oxygen by hemoglobin passing through the metabolically active tissue and thus improves oxygen delivery. Importantly, the Bohr Effect enhances oxygen delivery proportionally to the metabolic activity of the tissue. As more metabolism takes place, the carbon dioxide partial pressure increases thus causing larger reductions in local pH and in turn allowing for greater oxygen unloading. This is especially true in exercising skeletal muscles which may also release lactic acid that further reduces local blood pH and thus enhances the Bohr Effect

    I hope somehow I answered your questions regarding theproduct

    Looks great! dyoxva really was very useful. I have seen this thread while scrolling and its just that people here were also curious about this device. I'm still waiting for my order and I'm excited to use it. Thanks TenacleP for giving more info.

    It only proves that this CO2 treatment has many benefits to give. Honestly, I'm really amazed and that urged me to buy. Thanks.

    Hi TenacleP,

    Thank you so much for sharing the experience.
    I am now more interested to buy and see the difference myself. ;)
