Foot and Ankle Pain

The foot and ankle are prone to multiple problems including: sprains/strains, arthritic changes, joint dysfunction, radiculopathy from the lumbar spine (see Radiculopathy), diabetic neuropathy, gout, vascular claudication, and bony abnormalities.

A complete work up with x-rays, MRI, blood draws, and even biopsy of the joint may be required to thoroughly evaluate the symptoms.
