The complex web of joints in the foot, ankle, and lower leg is instrumental in our mobility and balance. Yet, the intricate structure can also be susceptible to various types of joint pain and conditions that hinder our daily activities. At OrthoConnecticut, our dedicated team of orthopedic surgeons and pain specialists is here to provide comprehensive solutions for a wide range of lower extremity issues. Let's explore common sources of discomfort and how our experts can offer effective relief.

Common Lower Extremity Joint Pain and Conditions:

Ankle Sprains: Ligaments in the ankle can become stretched or torn due to twisting or sudden impact, causing pain, swelling, and instability.

Achilles Tendonitis: Inflammation of the Achilles tendon can lead to pain and stiffness in the back of the ankle. This condition is often associated with overuse or improper footwear.

Plantar Fasciitis: The plantar fascia, a ligament connecting the heel bone to the toes, can become inflamed, resulting in intense heel pain, especially in the morning or after prolonged rest.

Bunions: A bunion is a bony bump that forms at the base of the big toe, often causing pain, swelling, and changes in foot shape.

Shin Splints: Shin splints refer to pain along the shinbone (tibia) due to overuse or repetitive impact, often seen in athletes or those who engage in vigorous activities.

Stress Fractures: Tiny cracks in the bone's surface can develop from repetitive stress. Stress fractures typically cause localized pain and can be seen in runners or individuals with sudden increases in activity.
