Your feet and ankles are some of the most complicated and hardest working joints in your body. After all, they’re responsible for getting you around. While most issues in the foot or ankle are from soft tissue injuries like a sprain or strain, some cases of foot or ankle pain are more complicated. If your foot or ankle pain persists, talk with a physician to get to the underlying cause.
