Foot and Ankle Pain

Foot and Leg Pain

You may have an obvious reason for this, like a recent sprain, but sometimes there is a not so obvious reason. Either way it is important to have it checked out by a qualified Sports Podiatrist.


The foot is a complex collection of 28 bones, 33 joints and over 200 muscles tendons and ligaments. With this complexity, some things can get temporarily dysfunctional or painful. Foot and ankle pain can range from heel pain (as mentioned on a previous page) to tendon and ligament strains, arthritis, fractures and various other pathologies.


A thorough assessment is essential for a correct diagnosis so that the right treatment choice can be provided for you. This may involve foot mobilisation, strapping, strengthening and custom orthoses.


You may need imaging to help with your diagnosis and we can obtain x-ray or diagnostic ultrasound if necessary and refer on to local specialist if more hi-tech imaging such as MRI or CT is needed.
