Far too many people disregard foot pain as something that simply happens when we become older or, perhaps even worse, dismiss it altogether as “not a big deal.” They don’t take into consideration the fact that pain is our bodies’ way of letting us know a problem exists!
Foot and ankle pain tends to be rather common because the lower limbs are the foundation for the entire body. They provide stability, enable mobility, and, most importantly, endure tremendous force loads. Even walking around during a normal day increases the amount of pressure they face by one-and-a-half times your bodyweight. Additionally, the lower limbs are complex structures and contain numerous bones, muscles, and connective tissues. This means there’s a lot of opportunity for things to go wrong.
