Foot and Ankle Pain

Foot and ankle pain can have an immediate impact on your mobility and daily activities.

Why Does My Foot Hurt?

The foot is a complex mechanical structure that balances the weight of the body while providing support and mobility. Pain in the foot may only be a minor nuisance, but long-lasting or intense discomfort can be a sign of a serious condition or injury that requires treatment.

Common symptoms of foot pain include swelling, tenderness, and discomfort in and around the joints, toes, or heel.

Common causes for foot pain include:

  • Overuse of tendons and muscles
  • Increasing your level of physical activity too quickly
  • Wearing high heels and increasing stress on the tendons
  • Having flat feet or fallen arches
  • Muscles or tendons in the legs that are too tight

Why Does My Ankle Hurt?

The ankle is a hard-working joint that connects the lower leg to the foot and supports the body’s weight. Ankle pain may be felt in any part of the complex system of ligaments, muscles, tendons, or bones that make up the ankle area.

Common symptoms of ankle pain include swelling, stiffness, bruising, or tenderness in and around their ankle, or have difficulty walking.

While sports injuries are a common cause of ankle pain, it is possible to incur injury or pain with simple activities, such as stepping on an uneven surface. Pain in the ankle may be acute, or sudden, and can also develop over time from repetitive motions associated with sports, work, or everyday life, causing conditions like tendonitis or tarsal tunnel syndrome.
