Knee, ankle and foot pain all have numerous possible causes. Many times they are caused by acute injuries such as falling, abnormal twisting or bending, but there also may be underlying problems causing the patient’s pain. Some patients experience this pain because they have osteoporosis
, arthritis or overuse injuries caused by certain activities such as bicycling or jogging. When experiencing knee, ankle or foot pain, it is important to seek proper diagnosis and treatment, and avoid a worsening of the problem.
