ARE YOU SUFFERING WITH PAIN IN THE BACK OF YOUR FOOT/ANKLE?

Rearfoot pain has a variety of causes. One being a flat foot type. We also see rearfoot problems with very high arched feet. Rearfoot pain can be as a result of foot position, trauma or overuse. Rearfoot pain will often cause issues in other parts of the foot and leg so it is imperative to get it treated appropriately. We may see issues with the rearfoot for the following reasons:
