Are you suffering from foot/ankle and/or knee pain?

Knee and foot/ankle pain are very common conditions. Common causes are the incorrect biomechanics of the foot, fl at feet, incorrect foot wear, and high heels, causing extra strain on the knee joint and surrounding soft tissues. Both being weight-bearing joints, the chances of injury are greater. Feet are a biological masterpiece.They have to withstand tremendous pressure during walking, jogging, and sprinting. Flat feet are a very common condition, which can often go unnoticed. Flat feet can be a cause of ankle and knee pain and even lower back pain. Flat feet are also a common cause of bunions (boney projection at the big toe). Ankle pain is often due to an ankle sprain but can also be caused by ankle instability (ligament laxity from repetitive sprains), arthritis, gout, tendonitis, fracture, nerve compression (tarsal tunnel syndrome), infection, and poor structural alignment of the leg or foot. Ankle pain can be associated with swelling, stiffness, redness, and warmth in the involved area.The symptoms can vary from a dull ache to a sharp intense pain that occurs upon bearing weight and ankle motion.

Knee pain is a very common condition. Understanding what is causing your knee pain is paramount: How old are you? Was there a traumatic event? Where is the pain located? Did the symptoms develop suddenly or over time? Once these questions are answered, you can begin to investigate the symptoms. Putting the symptoms together with the history and some simple diagnostic imaging leads to a proper diagnosis.The following are some of the common knee symptoms: popping, grinding, locking, instability, swelling, and redness.

Proper evaluation and treatment are key to avoiding chronic problems, potentially very disruptive to your quality of life. Flat feet, bowed, or knock knees all can cause knee pain, hip pain and back pain. Early detection can prevent further damage.
