Every year, there are millions of people dealing with foot and ankle issues. Foot and ankle injuries are extremely common among athletes and physically active individuals. Injuries can be sudden and acute, or they can be the result of a build up of repetitive forces in the ankle or foot causing microscopic damage to the bones. These tiny cracks in the bone may develop over time which can lead to more chronic conditions.
In the early stage of the injury, there may be no pain and symptoms may not be noticeable. However, the pain may develop over time and symptoms may start to arise such as stiffness, pain, swelling, heel pain or deformities. Failure to recognise and properly address these symptoms may lead to serious injuries or other complications.
