Rolling an ankle is common. Maybe you didn’t see that pothole in the sidewalk, you stepped off the curb funny, or you had a bad landing after a layup. You’ll often be able to just walk it off, with minor pain that goes away in a few days at worst. But depending on how and what exactly happened, you may find yourself with a sprained ankle.
You may benefit from physical therapy after a broken ankle to help you fully recovery functional mobility and to return to your previous level of activity.
Use of a new total ankle prosthesis improved the experience of patients with end-stage arthritis, according to results from a study presented at the American Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Society Annual Meeting.
A thick, strong band of tissue called the plantar fascia supports the arch of the foot. This tissue can become damaged or inflamed, causing pain and difficulty moving the foot.
Pain on the top of your foot or through your arch might be nerve-related. While many forms of foot pain come from joints and tendons, occasionally the source of foot pain is a nerve that is irritated directly or affected by health conditions that lead to nerve damage.
