What Causes Ankle Pain?

Your ankles take a lot of impact every day, and they are very mobile joints prone to sprains from sudden movements or awkward landings. Ankle pain can affect anyone, but is common in very active athletes. Ankle pain is most commonly caused by a sprain that has not healed properly. An ankle sprain is hyperextension of the tendons in the ankle, causing small tears. Other conditions that can cause ankle pain include

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Gout
  • Fractures
  • Compressed nerves

Ankle pain can cause swelling and stiffness in the joint area. If you notice redness or warmth in the area, contact your podiatrist.

How Does My Podiatrist Treat Ankle Pain?

To treat your ankle pain in Fresno, CA, your podiatrist may prescribe physical therapy to rehabilitate and strengthen the ankle. We can also fit you with an ankle brace or walking boot if necessary. Oral steroidal medications and prescription-strength anti-inflammatory drugs help reduce inflammation and pain. If we find that you have a fracture, or a torn ligament or tendon, it may require surgery.

What Can I Do?

If you are in pain, do not delay calling your podiatrist. We may have recommendations for conservative measures you can use at home between appointments. Over-the-counter, anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen help reduce your pain and swelling. When your ankle pain is due to a sprain, RICE helps you remember what you can do on your own to relieve pain:

  • Rest - keep weight off the ankle
  • Ice - Ice the ankle for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day
  • Compression - stabilize the joint with a brace or compression wrap
  • Elevation - elevate the foot as often as you can
