Foot and Ankle Pain

Severity for this condition can vary.

The ankle is a complex joint which is capable of a wide range of movement: flexion, extension, inversion and eversion as well as a combination of these movements. The ankle is also subject to the whole body force during activity and this can make it prone to injures such as; fractures, strains and sprains.

The ankle joint acts as a hinge between the leg and the foot. It is held in place by ligaments, muscles and tendons which facilitate a large range of motion at the joint. Due to this range of movement it can be susceptible to injuries.

Ankle pain can also be caused by many things including;

  • Instability
  • Arthritis
  • Gout
  • Tendonitis
  • Nerve compression
  • Infection
  • Poor biomechanical foot alignment.

Symptoms can include:

  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising or skin discolouration
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Inability to put weight through the ankle joint
  • Reduced movement in the affected joint

Symptoms can range from mild to severe.
