Hip, Foot and Ankle Conditions
The hips, feet, and ankles are common problem areas for many people due to the natural wear and tear, injuries and pre-existing conditions. This pain can stop people in their tracks. It can be caused by excessive walking and standing, or simply the amount of stress places on these critical areas of the body.
The hip is about six inches below the belt line and is where the femur bone meets with the pelvis. There are a number of muscles and ligaments that span the hip joint. Injury or irritation of these ligaments can cause inflammation and pain in the hip.
The ankle is the region where the foot and the leg meet. The ankle joint allows up and down movement of the foot. There are a vast amount of tendons and ligaments in the ankle. When an injury or condition disturbs the normal functioning of any of these it can result in pain, muscle weakness and limited mobility.
Each day you take thousands of steps, steps that are made possible by bones, tendons and ligaments working together. The feet are flexible structure that allow us to stand upright walk and do all the actives that we love to do. Not taking care of your feet can be detrimental to everyday life.
