COMMON PROBLEMS

ANKLE PAIN

Ankle pain is often the result of injury or uncorrected faulty biomechanics. Stiffness, instability and inflammation are the symptoms most people experience. The resulting pain is usually diffuse, but in the cases of sprains, may involve specific structures such as ligaments. Ligaments can be stretched, partially or completely torn and even cause ankle fractures depending on the force of the impact or type of injury. Inflammation of muscle tendons, bone abnormalities and nerve compression can also create ankle discomfort.

THE SOLUTIONS

WHAT CAN I
DO ABOUT IT?

In the case of a new sprain, bandages, ice and rest are recommended. Immobilization and compression may also be necessary depending on the severity of the injury. With repetitive strains, it’s likely an issue with the biomechanics of the foot. In this case, you’ll need to consider modifying things like your shoes and the way you practice sports. To avoid chronic sprains and further injury, custom orthotics and splints are the recommended treatment.
