Foot and Ankle Pain





Introduction

When approaching foot and ankle complaints, first be certain to rule out missed fractures or incomplete rehabilitation of a previous ankle sprain.

Common causes of ankle pain include plantar fasciitis, acute and chronic ankle sprain, chronic lateral ankle pain (due to tendonitis and/or incomplete rehabilitation of an old ankle sprain), Achilles tendonitis, lateral ankle pain due to peroneal tendonitis, medial ankle pain due to shin splints and posterior tibial tendonitis (also called tarsal tunnel syndrome), bunions, and gout. Uncommon causes include missed medial or lateral malleolus fracture, unhealed fifth metatarsal fractures, and navicular fractures.
