Problems in the ankle or foot are very disabling. Pain, difficulty in finding comfortable footwear, difficulty walking, poor posture and poor gait all take their toll.
The foot and ankle – made of 28 bones, with joints between them, ligaments for stability and tendons for motion – is a highly complex part of the body. Reaching the correct diagnosis is vital in planning the correct treatment.
The most important thing is that you are seen and assessed by a doctor who is a recognised expert in problems of the ankles and feet.
