The lower limb is made up of the shin bones, ankle joint and foot/ toe bones. There are many joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons which can be a source of pain in the lower leg. Pain can occur around the front of the shins, along the back of the leg or you may feel pain around the outside edge of your ankle and into the foot. Commonly lower limb pain is caused by overuse, which can originally be from poor biomechanical alignment during foot placement when walking or running. This can result in shin splints and Achilles tendon problems. Due to the structure and movement of the ankle it is also common to go over your ankle causing a sprain to the ligaments on the outside of your ankle.
