Experienced Ankle Doctor NYC
Like the wrist, its analog in the upper body, the ankle is a very complicated structure. But unlike the wrist, the ankle has the added stress of bearing the weight of the body above, so correct biomechanics and structure are even more important. It is very common for ankle sprain/strain injuries to become a chronic, recurring problem if not rehabilitated properly.
Ankle Pain Causes
The nerves of the lumbar plexus, which run from both sides of the spine in the low back, run all the way to the toes. Compression of one of these nerves can cause pain anywhere in the leg or even into the ankle and foot. This is commonly known as sciatica.
