Foot, Heel and Ankle pain

The structure of the foot is extensive, containing 26 bones and close to 38 small joints, with more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This complex nature of the foot means that something as simple as walking on an uneven surface can lead to injury. Because of this, it is important not to leave these injuries untreated or undiagnosed, as it may lead to more complicated injuries in the future.
