What is it?
Ankle pain refers to any type of pain or discomfort that arises in or around the ankle. There are many different causes of ankle pain, ranging from injuries to a number of different medical conditions. Treatment options are dependent on the cause of ankle pain, which has to be determined before any specific treatment can be recommended.
Ankle sprains occur when ligaments get overstretched or tear, usually through excessive stress on the ligaments. One or more ligaments can be injured during a sprain.
Treatment usually involves rest, ice, compression and immobilization of the ankle. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the most common pharmacological approach.
Bone fractures can happen as a consequence of an impact or another traumatic injury. The severity of bone fractures is variable and will determine the type of treatment needed. Immobilization via a
Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa, a sac filled with lubricating fluid, which decreases rubbing, friction, and irritation and acts as a cushion between bones and other moving body parts such as muscles, tendons, or skin. In the ankle, the retrocalcaneal bursa, located at the junction of the Achilles tendon with the heel bone, is the most common site of bursitis. Inflammation of this bursa can be caused by overuse and is often linked to Achilles tendinitis. Ankle bursitis causes pain and tenderness around the ankle. It can be treated through rest, ice, compression of the area, and elevation of the ankle (RICE). Pharmacological approaches include NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen and naproxen, or local corticosteroid injection with ultrasound guidance to the affected area.
