Afflictions of the foot and ankle can happen to any individual, and at any stage of life. Discomfort and pain can present in the ankle joint itself, the digits, the big toe, balls of the foot, arches and heels. Although pain in the feet and ankles sometimes disappear by themselves, oftentimes they persist, forcing us to reduce our activities, and affect our quality of life. One of the issues with leaving foot and ankle pain untreated, is that it can have a knock-on effect on the other parts of our lower limb. Pain and discomfort could mean that we may be reluctant to put weight through the foot, and our functioning can change.
