Understanding the Common Causes of Foot & Ankle Pain
Your foot contains 28 bones and over 30 ligaments. It is one of the most complex parts of the skeletal system. It’s also pivotal for helping us maintain our balance and providing us with the ability to walk and run. Even a minor injury to the foot or ankle can significantly impact our daily routine. Whether it’s due to injury or a degenerative disease, it’s critical to identify the issues you’re experiencing with your foot or ankle accurately and quickly to help improve recovery time. Some of the most common causes of foot and ankle pain include:
Tendinitis is when the ligament that supports the bones become inflamed due to too injury or overuse. It is also commonly found in people with type one and two diabetes.
Arthritis is a singular term that defines a wide range of diseases. Individuals of all ages can suffer from an arthritis-related disease, but it is common in seniors.
Bone spurs are additional bone growth commonly found where two bones meet. They may go undetected and untreated for much of your life but can cause damage to the ligaments in your body.
One of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of each foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. Commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning.
Gout is a type of arthritis that most commonly affects the big toe. Gout symptoms include inflammation, a burning sensation in the affected area, and a lack of range of motion.
Strains can occur whenever you're participating in physical activity such as exercise or sports. A sprain occurs when the ligament that provides flexibility is stretched too far or tears completely.
