Foot & Ankle Pain
Foot and ankle pain is most often the result of poor foot biomechanics. This means that one or more of the twenty-eight bones below the knee are not in correct alignment or the muscles supporting these bones are not strong enough to maintain the correct position. When stress is placed on a joint that is not capable of supporting the weight of the body, pain is produced. A past history of ankle sprains can set this process up. Until the correct balance is made the condition will persist.
Proper arch supports may also be needed. I also recommend taking your shoes off when you’re at home and walking barefoot or with only socks on.
If the following procedures do not relieve your pain then go to Knee Chart.
