Pain in one area may be caused by something going on in a completely separate part of the body.
The feet act as the foundation for all motion and function. So if you’re suffering from foot or ankle pain, this can impact things like your posture, your knee, and more.
For example, someone with ankle pain may also be found to have a dysfunctional hip that is causing them to walk and run poorly.
In this circumstance, their hip issue is the root cause of their ankle pain. If the leg and hip are ignored, this will not be discovered and the foot will remain painful.
Yoga is one of the best ways to hone in on problem areas that are causing discomfort, and naturally improve strength and flexibility to reduce pain.
