Foot & Ankle Pain

Foot and ankle pain can be debilitating and a constant problem for many people and often it does not need to be. Injury, overuse or conditions causing inflammation involving any of the bones, ligaments, tendons or muscles in the foot can cause foot pain. Arthritis is a common cause of foot pain. Injury to the nerves of the feet may result in intense burning pain, numbness or tingling (peripheral neuropathy). Foot pain is not normal and should be assessed by a Podiatrist to determine the cause and to ascertain what can be done to help. Some of the common causes of foot pain include:

Achilles tendinitis

Achilles tendon rupture
