Does knee, ankle, or foot pain got you down? As we age, the chances of lower leg pain (particularly in the foot, ankle, and knee) increases. Symptoms such as a decreased ability to bear weight, move, or walk, tenderness and stiffness or swelling in the joint could mean you are at risk for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or other similar diseases.
If are suffering from foot, ankle, or knee pain that is not due to an injury, it could likely be the result of added pressure from a lifestyle change or an increase in weight. The joints below the knee are small, and drastic changes such as weight gain can easily strain or shift the joints.
