The foot and ankle bare significant amounts of weight in day-to-day life, however, their highly complex structure is concentrated into a narrow and therefore vulnerable space. Although many foot problems can develop over time, ankles are susceptible to acute injury.
There are several issues that may cause you to feel pain in the ankle yet they may originate from different areas – these include heel pain, nerve injuries and blockage of the blood vessels in the leg. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as Gout and Reiter’s syndrome, can also contribute to ankle pain. At Complete Feet, our podiatrists will be able to help to accurately diagnose the cause of the pain and work to relieve it.
