Foot and ankle pain can occur for many reasons and frequently without an injury as every step taken can put a large amount of force on the foot and ankle joints. Tight muscles in the lower leg are frequently the cause of pain including Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and several other tendons that often become inflamed. As you age, the mechanics of your lower extremity can change, thus putting unusual forces on your feet. Additionally, awkward twists and slips can often lead to joint or muscle sprains that can have lingering effects.
