Common Causes Of Ankle Pain
An ankle sprain is not the only cause of ankle pain that a Sydney physiotherapist will deal with in their clinic – there are many conditions that can cause ankle pain. Some common causes of ankle pain include:
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Peroneal tendinopathy
- Tib Post tendinopathy
- Achilles tendon rupture
- Syndesmosis injury
When you think of the stress that is exerted on the ankle in a normal day, it is no surprise ankle pain is a complaint that Sydney Physiotherapists deal with regularly.
Your foot must absorb the impact of landing when walking, running and jumping. As well as help propel your entire body weight multiple times a minute when simply walking. This all makes your foot and ankle a target area for overuse injuries, degenerative conditions and vulnerable to suffering high force traumatic injuries.
Sydney Physio Clinic Physiotherapists
Sydney Physio Clinic physiotherapists are specialised in assessing and managing ankle injuries and the multitude of causes of ankle pain.
It is important to accurately diagnose exactly what is wrong with your ankle to ensure that short and long-term treatment goals are achieved as quickly and safely as possible. This ensures patients can return to the things they love, sooner rather than later.
Diagnosis and Management of Ankle Pain
Accurate diagnosis of the cause of ankle pain will require a thorough examination. Including a history of the condition, as well as examination of the foot, ankle and any other areas deemed associated. Examination will often be carried out in both resting and dynamic postures.
Assessing the ankle in weight bearing positions is crucial, as this is inevitably when almost all the problems occur. Failure to assess the dynamic function of the foot and ankle may result in missing the correct diagnosis.
