Foot & Ankle
Foot and ankle pain is often caused by sudden trauma, but can also be the result of arthritis or a deformity of the bone such as a bunion. Since ligaments do not regenerate on their own, ankles can become unstable as the result of previous sprains. People with unstable ankles can suffer from sudden falls because their ankle/s “gave out.”
Any type of foot or ankle pain can have a significant impact on mobility and quality of life.
