Do you have pain in your ankle?

When your foot or ankle hurts, it affects your whole life. Mobility without pain is something we often take for granted. But when debilitating foot and ankle pain occurs that repeated affects our mobility, it is time to take action to stop the pain.

Ankle pain is often caused by an ankle sprain, but it can also be caused by ankle instability, gout, arthritis, tendonitis, fracture, nerve compression, poor alignment of the leg or foot, and even infection. Swelling, stiffness, warmth, and redness often occur with ankle pain. Rest, ice, and elevating the affected ankle can help to reduce the pain. Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen can also help. If the foot and ankle pain doesn’t subside with these measures, it is advisable to consult a podiatrist.
