Having an injured foot or ankle can slow you down physically and cause mental stress and fatigue due to frustration. Because there are so many bones, tendons, and nerves in the area, damage can lead to strains and tears elsewhere, causing more pain and delayed healing.

Common Causes of Foot & Ankle Pain
Pain can be caused by injury or ongoing conditions, and should not be ignored due to the risk of further damage. Some common podiatric conditions include the following.
The Achilles tendon is a band of tissue connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. When this becomes inflamed, pain flares up and makes it difficult to walk or stand.
Pronounced PLAN-ter fash-ee-EYE-tus, this ligament connects the heel bone to the toes and provides support to the arch of the foot. When strained, it becomes inflamed and weak, causing arch or heel pain when walking or standing.
Arthritis in the foot or ankle causes swelling, pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion. This type of pain requires podiatric medical attention.
