Common Causes of Ankle Pain

Ankle pain can significantly hinder daily life. Understanding the common causes is essential for finding relief.

  • Ankle Sprain: One of the most prevalent causes of ankle pain is a sprain, which occurs when the ligaments that support and help to stabilize the ankle are stretched or torn. This injury often results from a sudden twist or impact and can cause swelling, bruising, limited mobility, and difficulty walking.
  • Achilles Tendinitis: Another frequent source of ankle pain is Achilles tendinitis, the inflammation of the Achilles tendon at the back of the ankle. This condition is typically brought on by overuse or repetitive stress, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced flexibility.
  • Fractures: Fractures and stress fractures can also cause ankle pain due to direct trauma or repetitive impact on the joint. These injuries can create significant discomfort, swelling, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected ankle.
  • Arthritis: Different types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout, can also contribute to ankle pain. These conditions lead to the degeneration of joint cartilage, resulting in inflammation, stiffness, and discomfort during movement.
  • Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD): This condition is another common cause of ankle pain that involves damage to the tendon that supports the foot’s arch. This condition can lead to pain, swelling, and a flattening of the foot arch, affecting your gait and overall stability.

By addressing these common causes of ankle pain with a holistic approach, Omni Physical Therapy & Wellness can help restore your body’s balance, strength, and flexibility. Call today to request an appointment with one of our specialists!

Our physical therapists will utilize a variety of treatments known to provide ankle pain relief. The immediate goal is to reduce your pain and improve tissue and joint mobility. These treatments include:

  • Manual Therapy: This hands-on technique involves the physical therapist applying pressure and mobilization to the affected joint, muscles, and soft tissue to reduce pain, increase range of motion, and improve flexibility.
  • Therapeutic Exercises: Customized exercises are designed to target specific muscle groups, enhancing strength, flexibility, and endurance. These exercises also aid in the recovery of your ankle by promoting blood flow and reducing inflammation.
  • Balance and Proprioceptive Training: Improving your balance and proprioception (the awareness of your body’s position in space) is crucial for preventing future injuries and restoring optimal function. Our physical therapists will guide you through exercises challenging and improving these essential skills.
  • Gait Retraining: Gait analysis allows our therapists to identify any abnormalities in your walking pattern that may be causing or contributing to your ankle pain. Based on these findings, they will provide you with targeted exercises and recommendations to optimize your gait and minimize discomfort.
  • Modalities: Physical therapists may also use various modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and cold or heat therapy to alleviate pain, minimize inflammation, and facilitate the healing process.
