FOOT & ANKLE CONDITIONS AND TREATMENTS

BACK CONDITIONS AND TREATMENTS

DESCRIPTION

The ankle allows the movement of the foot through small joints that are easily injured. Wear and tear of the ankle joint is inevitable; it has the entire weight of the body above it and is essential for walking. Delicate ligaments and tendons surround the complex ankle joint, stretching and tightening to absorb impact and allow for rotation. These tissues, along with the bones of the ankle joint, are often strained and damaged.
