Recently I discovered that I have had a break in my ankle. As you can imagine it has been a bit of an impediment.
Once I knew what was causing the pain a lack of mobility I could take affirmative action to help rectify the issues. I followed the path of finding a good Podiatrist, following his direction and purchasing some very sensible shoes and orthotics.
Yes, they did help. They were the big things. The things that looked like they would make the biggest difference.
