Back Ankle and Foot Pain

The first step in your treatment of ankle and foot pain is to make sure this is not a problem with the nerves originating in the lumbar spine or lower back. Please see lower back and leg pain section for more information. Ankle and foot pain can also be a part of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).Ankle sprains not addressed properly can result in instability of the tendons and ligaments that support the ankle and ultimately, in chronic ankle and foot pain.

Ankle sprains, poor sports technique leading to sports injuries, or ankle or foot surgery, can result in degenerative changes (osteoarthritis of the ankle and foot) or inflammatory conditions (ankle and foot tendinits and bursitis).
