Foot and Ankle Pain

The foot and ankle is a complex region of the body, with lots of ligaments, joints, muscles and tendons in the area. It is crucial for everyday function such as walking, running, jumping and playing sports, but also plays an important role in maintaining balance and preventing falls. Injuries around the foot and the ankle can present in a number of different locations with a number of different symptoms. You may experience arch pain, heel pain, achilles tendon pain, stiffness around the foot or ankle, or even feelings of achiness and instability. Injuries to the foot and ankle can be very limiting, which is why proper rehab is so important. 


Common ankle and foot injuries include:

  • Ankle sprain or a ‘rolled’ ankle 

  • Ankle ligament injury 

  • Achilles tendinopathy 

  • Achilles tendon rupture

  • Plantar fasciitis 

  • Arthritis 

  • Stiff ankle, particularly post ankle surgery or immobilisation 

  • Calf strain or tear
