Ankle Pain: Symptoms, Causes, & Treatment

Navigate through the sections below to learn all about getting to the root cause of your Ankle Pain!

Ankle Pain Symptoms

  • Ankle discoloration
  • Ankle inflammation
  • Ankle pain
  • Ankle swelling
  • Arch cramping
  • Crepitation with movement
  • In mild cases, there may be a propensity for the ankle to continually turn inward
  • Inability to move the ankle properly
  • Popping
  • Loss of motion
  • Loss of muscle strength
  • Mild aching to sudden pain
  • Numbness in toes
  • Pain even when no weight is put on the ankle
  • Referral foot and toe pain

The above symptoms can be signs of ankle conditions caused by ankle soft tissue injuries that we commonly treat with Soft Tissue Applied Regenerative Therapy.

Ankle Pain Causes

  • Ankle Sprain/Strain
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • ATFL Tear
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ankle tendonosis/tendonitis
  • Sever’s Disease

Did you know that once you have sprained your ankle, you are much more likely to sprain it in the future? Ankle sprains can easily, and often, lead to chronic ankle instability! This means that a “simple” sprained ankle quickly becomes a progressive, degenerative condition.

Treatment for Ankle Pain

Ankle pain is most commonly due to ankle soft tissue injuries, caused by muscle or ligament damage. Since ligaments do not heal well on their own, ankle instability quickly becomes a chronic, painful condition. It allows for destructive joint motions every time the ankle joint is used, wearing down the cartilage and causing further structural damage.

Our providers understand the need for rapid recovery to prevent the long-term damage of ankle soft tissue injuries. Therefore, we utilize Comprehensive S.T.A.R. Therapy to restore the muscle, ligament, and tendon integrity and strengthen the joint function. This prevents the continued cartilage degeneration through destructive joint motions and allows the ankle a chance to heal.

S.T.A.R. Therapy, in simple terms, stimulates the body to repair painful areas. It does so by inducing a localized, mild inflammatory reaction in the weakened ligament and tendon attachments. Since the body heals by inflammation, S.T.A.R. Therapy stimulates healing.
