How complex is the foot and ankle? Seeming large- as it moves up and down (flex and extend), in and out (inversion and eversion) and allows the foot/arch to fall and lift (pronation and supination) as well as other motions. The ankle is where the shin (tibia and fibula) meet the foot through the tarsal bones and the toes. It is supported by many ligaments (guiding joint motion) and tendons (where most of the muscles are located in the calf or coming from the ankle or close to the knee) that guide proper alignment. It has to fit in, and work with, a properly fitted shoe- a shoe that supports the arch, but not too much. That provides cushion, but also allows you to feel your walking surface, and so much more. Feet, as well, cannot be simply fixed by a golf ball, iced water bottle and drug store orthotics. Careful assessment of the knee, hip, spine, gait, and strength balance is performed as well as many hands-on techniques to release what is to tight or scarred, and strengthen what needs to be more stable.
