Foot pain suffers many times feel as though that’s the way their feet are and they just need to learn to live with the pain. Occasionally the end of the bone on the outside of the ankle breaks but more often the ligaments of the ankle on the outside and front and get torn and produce massive swelling and bruising. Often times the location of the pain can help determine the diagnosis of your foot pain.
