What Causes Ankle Pain?

Some of the causes of ankle pain include:



Ankle pain is a common complaint, even though this joint is relatively resilient. More often than not, ankle pain arises from injuries, especially repeated sports injuries


Unstable Joints

Unstable ankle joints may be due to these past injuries that were not completely healed


Bone Spurs

Bone spurs are bony projections that may develop in the joints due to previous damage. Depending on their placement, they can hinder joint mobility


Degenerative Arthritis

Degenerative arthritis (or osteoarthritis) can cause your ankle joints to continuously break down (or waste away)


Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid (inflammatory) arthritis can also lead to ankle pain

When you experience pain in your ankle, you may limp and take shorter steps. You might even rotate your ankles outward to ease the pain. However, this stance places more stress on your knees and hips. You could also worsen any existing lower back pain with your altered manner of walking.

Treatment for Ankle Pain

It’s easy to ignore a slight nagging pain in your ankle. However, pain should never be ignored, as it is an indication of a problem that needs to be resolved. So, we encourage you to seek treatment for your ankle pain as soon as possible. Some conventional treatments include physiotherapy, injections, and ankle replacement surgery.  Ankle replacement surgery has been a treatment option for close to five decades. Earlier, the results of such surgeries were not very favorable. However, with the advancements in medical technology, we are now in a new era of innovative ankle joint replacement. Now, you can benefit from improved implant design, better surgical equipment, and specialized surgical expertise. Your ankle replacement surgery will give you the pain relief that you seek, as well as your treasured mobility and independence.
