The foot and ankle are complex body parts, and pain arising from the area can affect people from both active and sedentary backgrounds.
As with most conditions, causes can vary, as can the level to which they affect your day to day life. Most conditions arising from an injury will recover with minimal intervention, whereas conditions without trauma may require more detailed planning in your care.
