Hip Pain, Knee Pain and Ankle Pain

About Hip Pain, Knee Pain and Ankle Pain

Injury to the hip joint or muscle strain around the hip can lead to pain. Osteoarthritis, commonly resulting from wear and tear of the joints or referred pain from the spine may also cause hip pain.

The knee joint is one that is under continuous use and this joint is susceptible to wear and tear issues as a result, particularly due to the knee cap as a result of muscular imbalances. Nonetheless, complaints with the knee or leg causing pain may also be caused as a result of ‘referred pain’ from the foot, hip or lower back. This joint is one that can suffer from muscle strains, injury to the meniscus (cartilage pads) and ligament sprains.

Any direct injury to the joints, ligaments or muscles in the foot and ankle pain may cause discomfort or pain. Pain within the foot and ankle is commonly caused as a result of fallen arches (flat feet) this puts the foot under abnormal strain, which causes the complaint. Although, pain from the lower back which can travel through the nerves in the legs may also cause pain and discomfort to the foot or ankle, this is also known as ‘referred pain’.
