The ankle is a complex joint and is very much affected by the way you walk and by the posture of your foot. If you are experiencing pain in your ankle, it is best to have your feet and lower limbs assessed by a competent podiatrist or physiotherapist.
The attending podiatrist or physiotherapist will examine the following pre-conditions to ascertain the biomechanical make-up that is contributing to your knee or ankle pain:
- Position of the hip and knee
- Alignment of the pelvis
- Stability of the ankle and pressure on the feet
All previous injuries and accidents are also considered in order to thoroughly determine the performance of these complex joints.
