Foot and ankle pain can affect all of us at some time in our lives, whether we are 2 or 102, injuries can occur that lead to sudden onset of discomfort that can disrupt our lifestyle.
Unfortunately foot pain can be very debilitating due to the complex nature of the foot and the fact that we need to be mobile everyday. Resting your feet is not always possible.
There are a number of foot complaints that can arise from poor lower limb biomechanics or due to age related degeneration. Stress fractures from osteoporosis, for example is a common occurrence in the elderly along with painful bunions, plantar fasciopathy and pain in the ball of the feet.
