The foot and ankle are often effected in sciatica, and other back related conditions. This may cause numbness, pins and needles or pain in this area.
The ankle & foot can also be effected by biomechanical conditions, usually when the arch of the foot is lost.
This can lead to plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, bunions, ankle and knee pain, and nerve entrapments between the bones of the foot.
