Foot & Ankle Pain Relief Sanger, CA

Foot and Ankle Pain

The ankle is a hinged joint formed by the meeting of three bones- the tibia, fibula and the talus. Its bony knobs on the side are known as the malleoli. All in all, the ankle is a complex structure. These structures provide stability for walking and standing. In addition, ligaments on the outside of the ankle provide stability. There are also tendons that attach to the ankles’ muscles.

 

What Causes Ankle Pain?

Ankle pain can be caused by a variety of conditions, such as sprain, strain, tendinitis and arthritis. Ankle sprains and strains are one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries. These types of injuries can occur on both sides of the ankle joint. Typically, sudden stretching or sudden twisting causes an ankle sprain or strain. There may be pain, swelling or even a tear.  

Just like the complexities of the hand, the foot and ankle is a very complex structure that can affect the functioning of your knee, hip, back and even posture. With ankle pain and foot pain, there is a lot that needs to be evaluated first before deciding on the appropriate treatment.
