What do we mean with Chronic Foot and Ankle pain?

Our daily routine includes us using our feet all day long, which means that if they start hurting it will have a big impact on our everyday life. Chronic pain is a symptom that something is not right. It’s a pain which lasts for more than six months, until the damage or wound is healed or treated completely.

This kind of pain is very uncomfortable and it can go on even after it is healed, as the symptoms stay in our nervous system for days, months or even years.

Common Foot and Ankle pain injuries.

Foot and ankle pain is a sickness that brings people into physiotherapy many times, because they have several symptoms which help them detect that there is something wrong, such as: swelling, stiffness, pain, etc. Underneath, you will find some of the injuries that create this pain.

Achilles tendinopathy. 

Achilles tendinopathy is also a usual injury which happens due to the tiresome of the microtrauma. The tendon of Achille is the largest one in our body and it develops from the calf muscles which attach to the back of our heel. 

Achilles rupture. 

This tendon is the most frequently ruptured tendon in our body and it is mostly caused by sports injuries. It causes fracture pain in the back of our ankle and it can also happen due to the unstable movements in sport activities. 

Dislocation of the ankle and foot. 

This is not a very common injury. It happens, because of our wrong structure and position of the joints. Dislocation mostly occurs from accidents, sports injuries or mechanisms and can give you strong pain, swelling, bruising and lessen your motion. 

Navicular stress fracture.  

This injury usually happens from the overload we create and the fact that we do not leave a certain time for our feet to heal and rest. It can cause us indefinite pain and it happens through our medical arch and into the top of our foot.
