For any patient at the clinic with foot or ankle pain, but with no reasoning or understanding as to why, an assessment will be instrumental toward treatment. Pain can occur at the ankle, heel, arch, ball of the foot, and/or at the toes. In considering the many structures in our feet—ranging from bones, nerves, to blood vessels, and muscles— there are many things to consider when assessing a foot pain. It is important to have a thorough assessment of the nature of the pain, and in so doing, a Chiropodist can help to treat the problem rather than just treat symptoms. At times, underlying pain may relate to a pre-existing health condition such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, kidney disease, among others. It is therefore equally important to understand how such conditions may also affect the feet.
