The tissue that supports your foot, is the same tissue that helps you walk. If you pull your toe towards the ankle of the foot, you can feel the ligament. It provides support to your foot. Moreover, putting a lot of pressure on your foot will eventually affect your ligament. This is one of the most common orthopedic problems. Another common symptom of this problem is feeling severe pain near your heel area. Also, the pain gets worse when you place your foot down after resting.
