Ankle pain, a general overview of causes and treatment

  
  
  

 

Ankle Pain:

There appears to be quite a few people in the general population who suffer from ankle pain.  Therefore, I thought I would dedicate a blog to reasons for ankle pain and treatment modalities availabe for chronic ankle pain.  Most of our patients are very active and want to return to activities pain free and as quickly as possible.  We have established treatment protocols for ankle pathology.

This blog will be multiple parts, here are the pathologies I anticipate covering;

1.  Ankle Sprains

2. Ankle Fractures

3. Posterior Tibial Tendonitis

4. Osteochondral Defects 

I may add a few more topics as this proceeds.  I expect some may have a few sub-catagories as well.  This will most likely take a few weeks to cover all these topics.  I hope this creates a great forum for some discusions, please post any questions or comments.

Ankle Pain

  
  
  

Quite a few patients, especially runners or athletes come in with:

  • ankle pain
  • ankle pain after running
  • ankle pain without swelling

There are many reasons for ankle pain, some of the most common include a history of ankle sprains or trauma.  Trauma or sprains can often result in inflammation of the ankle joint or damage to soft tissue structures like ankle ligaments or tendons.    The anterior talar fibular ligament or peroneal tendons are often injured with sprains.

Patiens often relate a stiffness, popping or catching of the ankle as part of there symptoms.  These can be attributed to other causes including arthritis of the ankle or damage to cartilaginous surfaces.
