Sports like basketball, soccer, football, and tennis can increase your chances of ankle pain and foot pain. These sports require a lot of movement and cutting which can cause things like ankle sprains. Foot pain can occur outside of sports too. This can be from general movements that you do each day like walking your dog or taking out the trash. Your feet and ankles are very important because you are constantly using them each day. It is important to get foot pain and ankle pain checked and fixed quickly so they do not begin to limit your daily activities.
