FOOT AND ANKLE DISORDERS
With a large number of bones, joints and muscles present, the foot and ankle is a complex mechanism. The complexity of this joint system renders the area more prone to developing disorders than other parts of the body.
Common causes of foot and ankle disorders include:
- Twisting the joint outside the normal range of motion
- Falling or tripping
- A forceful landing on the foot
Outside of the above factors, congenital conditions, arthritis or even a stroke can impact the foot and ankle area.
