Most conditions of the foot & ankle, involve joins and soft tissues such as muscles, tendons and fascias. Therefore symptoms are usually dull, deep, and achy, with chronic conditions. Point tenderness and sharp pain is not uncommon if the condition is acute or if nerve tissue is involved.
Foot and ankle pain is most frequently a result of a combination of factors which, structural inclination and poor biomechanics are key players. Poor movement and loos of motor control do not always occur in the feet but are more commonly dispersed throughout the lower kinetic chain from the pelvis to the foot.
