My foot hurts

by MO

Last summer I severely sprained my ankle while jumping on the trampoline. Ever since my ankle has 'healed' my foot has a bad pain on the side of my ankle when I walk for a long time and I don't know why.

Hello Mo,
It's speculative but almost certainly because during the sprain you also subluxated the subtalar joint; if it's not reduced it often continues hurting and becomes arthritic.

See our ankle joint sprain page. Start hunting for a local chiropractor who works with feet, and not just expensive orthotics. A post graduate FICS qualification would be good; contact your local association.
