SOLUTIONS TO YOUR ANKLE PROBLEMS

 

The ankle is made up of many bones, ligaments, muscles, joints, tendons and nerves. The complex structures within the ankles are designed to carry the body’s weight and perform a wide range of activities. Strengthening the leg muscles of the calf and shin will increase the stability of the ankle joint and help reduce ankle and foot pain. Foot and ankle pain is a common occurrence but it is important to determine the true cause of the pain to initiate the appropriate treatment.

BUNIONS

A bunion is a painful bony bump that forms on the inside of the foot at the joint at the base of your big toe. In most cases, bunion pain is relieved by wearing wider shoes with adequate toe room and using other simple treatments to reduce pressure on the big toe. If nonsurgical measures do not relieve your symptoms, Dr. Anson Chu may recommend bunion surgery.
