The ankles and feet form the end of the linked chain that runs from the spine all the way to the toes. Problems in the lower legs can affect the hip and knee joints as well as the spine, and vice versa. This can cause changes in the way a person walks, and can lead to pain and loss of function. Studies estimate that three-fourths of Americans will have ankle or foot problems at some point in their lives.
Although most conditions can get better on their own or with changes in shoe wear, some can grow into lingering problems. There are many structures in the foot and ankle that can develop symptoms, including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, arteries, veins, and nerves. There are several treatment options available.
