Foot and Ankle Pain

The foot and ankle are complex structures that take a huge amount of force whenever you take a step. Ligaments and other structures in the foot can change through injuries and with age. Poorly fitted shoes and residual effects from previous injuries can cause pain because of poor stability, lack of mobility, or lack of strength in stabilizing muscles.

 

The ankle is made up of bones in the lower leg (tibia and fibula) forming an arch over the talus bone in the foot. This is actually a flexible arch that opens slightly when bending the ankle and closes when extending it. If this doesn’t occur properly or if the joints aren’t in good alignment, increased painful pressure occurs.

 

The  foot and ankle are complex structures that can affect the functioning of your knee, hip, back, and even posture. With ankle and foot pain, there are many factors that need to be evaluated.
