Alleviate your ankle and foot pain and get back to enjoying your life.
Do the first steps in the morning cause pain? Does your foot hurt every time you take a step? Are you unable to participate in the activities you love because of foot or ankle pain?
Your foot and ankle are a complex mechanism made up of 28 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, ligaments and tendons that work together to provide stability, balance, and mobility. You can have pain anywhere in the foot or ankle — bottom, top, either side of the ankle — which could mean a multitude of diagnoses such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, metatarsalgia, or an ankle sprain. So, understanding exactly where you have pain and what movements or activities increase your pain, is key to getting the proper diagnosis and treatment.
Pain in your foot or ankle is not only frustrating and limits enjoyment in life, it can and will affect other parts of your body, leading to other issues you may not have normally had.
What is the biggest mistake you can make if you have pain?
The biggest mistake you can make is to ignore your pain, or think you can just rest and it will go away. While a short period of rest may be appropriate, ignoring the pain is often a recipe for pain to become chronic, more difficult to treat, and you may develop other issues while compensating for the original issue.
