Lateral foot pain is pain that runs along the outer side of the foot and ankle. It can occur before, during, or after activities such as walking and running. Lateral foot pain can make it difficult for people to move around or even stand. Lateral foot pain can cause a variety of symptoms, most of which depend on which part of the foot is affected.

The most common symptoms include:

  • pain on the outer side of the ankle
  • instability of the foot
  • swelling
  • tenderness
  • difficulty walking
  • susceptibility to ankle sprains
  • difficulty in standing on the foot

What are the causes?

Lateral foot pain can have many causes. Most of them arise from conditions that were left untreated. These could include:

  • ankle joint inflammation and scar tissue
  • arthritis
  • the presence of very fine cracks in the foot bones and in the ankle
