THE FACTS ON ANKLE PAIN

WHAT IS ANKLE PAIN?

Ankle sprain affects ligaments on the outside of the ankle. Most athletes once they have an ankle sprain will experience this multiple times. In most cases, they could develop chronic instability (multiple recurring sprains).

 This condition is called “chronic ankle instability.” Such individuals may get repeated ankle sprains or feel that their ankle is “giving away.” This is serious because with each sprain, one increases the chance of ankle arthritis in later life.

Arthritis or “Degenerative arthritis” is damage to and inflammation of the joint. This damage if due to wear and tear is called Osteoarthritis. As the ankle is a commonly injured joint, its wear and tear over many years could cause significant problems in later life.
