Pain in the ankle and foot can be from local trauma, or referred pain from above, particularly from the low back. In sportspeople Achilles tendon problems are relatively common. This is the tendon at the back of the foot that connects your calf muscles to your heel and lifts you up onto your toes. Unfortunately tendon problems can take months to resolve, but there is good research support for the approach we use in dealing with them.
