When you’ve got a nagging pain, it can really interrupt your life, especially if it is in your foot or ankle. When you are unable to accomplish simple tasks without discomfort you come to realize how much you rely on your feet!
There are various conditions that can cause chronic ankle pain and if it’s nagging you, you should really have it checked out. Some conditions can cause damage to tissue and the threat of long-term disability. Don’t wait to get to the bottom of your ailment.
When you come in to discuss the issues you are having, more often than not, we will first take a good look at your day-to-day footwear. Fashion aside, high heels and tight toes just do not allow your feet to function properly, even if you think they feel comfortable. Good shoes help your feet gain muscle strength and flexibility due to better support.
If your shoes aren’t the culprit, your ankles could be sore due to osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that usually affects older patients. You might also be looking at tarsal tunnel syndrome which can be caused by an old injury creating bone spurs. And we can’t rule out diabetes, as this is a common issue in podiatry.
