Potential Causes of Foot and Ankle Pain
You put your feet and ankles through a lot on a daily basis, so it’s not always easy to pinpoint the exact reason for your pain, especially if the pain affects both the ankle joint and foot. Some causes may be injuries due to accidents, while others are medical conditions that have developed over time. Symptoms that often pop up alongside foot and ankle pain are instability, swelling and bruising.
Here are some potential causes of foot and ankle pain:
While having flatfoot isn’t something you can control, it can increase the risk of developing ankle or foot pain. Without an arch to support your foot while you walk or run, you can strain the muscles and tendons. Flatfoot can also cause ankle muscle imbalances because of differing foot posture.
