Leg & Ankle Pain

Ankle pain  treatment osteopath BathAre you Suffering from Ankle, Shin or Leg Pain?

Legs and ankles do so much for us yet rarely get noticed. But when they do begin to cause pain they can make it hard to have a comfortable and productive day. People of all ages can experience hip, knee and ankle pain, and it can be caused by arthritis or simply by overuse. If you play a lot of sport, you may be prone to conditions such as sciatica, which is a type of pain that starts in the back or the hip and is felt all through the leg and into the foot.

Ankles and feet are very complex sets of muscles bones and joints. They have to support your entire weight throughout your life, so they will take quite a lot of strain before they protest.

But when they do, they can produce painful conditions such as plantar fasciitis and cramps and repeated ankle sprains can lead to pain and tightness in the calf muscles or feet.
