There are many different things that can cause ankle and foot pain. Achilles Tendonitis is common among athletes training under less than ideal conditions. There are two types of this condition, tendonitis–the inflammation of the tendon, and Tendonosis–tiny tears in the tissue around the tendon. Caused by overuse of the affected limb.
Strains and Sprains can occur when ligaments twist or overstretch. This typically happens in an ankle or other joint. Caused by walking or exercising on an uneven surface, foot rolling incorrectly during an athletic activity or due to accidents.
