The foot and ankle have multiple tendons that connect the muscles of the lower leg to all aspects of the foot.
These tendons can become irritated and inflamed along the course of the tendon, or where the tendon attaches to the bone.
This is referred to as “Tendonitis”, and can occur for a variety of different reasons. Tendonitis can make physical activity involving the feet extremely difficult and painful.
Orthotic insoles can control inefficient and painful motion of the foot and ankle.
Controlling abnormal frontal plane motion of the ankle, heel and foot can relieve the symptoms of tendonitis in some instances.
