Foot pain is not normal! According to a survey conducted by the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, 66 percent of those surveyed stated that their feet hurt on a regular basis. The foot is a highly mechanical apparatus, and it carries the entire weight of the body when we stand, walk and run.
A normal ankle gives us the ability for motion because of power provided by the muscles and tendons surrounding the ankle ligaments. The ankle joint primarily operates by swinging the foot up and down; it also swivels the foot from side-to-side. The average ankle joint is placed under as much of 63 tons of pressure per each mile walked.
Whether your foot suffers an injury or develops a particular condition, OrthoIndy’s foot specialists can help.
