Foot and Ankle Pain

What do we mean by Foot and Ankle Pain?

We will ask when you contact us whether you can see something on your foot where the pain is, such as redness, callous or corns. If not, the pain is likely to be caused by overuse of certain structures within the foot or ankle- we call this functional pain. For instance, tendinitis, joint overuse or sprains and strains.
Foot deformities such as bunions can also cause pain elsewhere in the foot.
