Common ankle conditions

The ankle joint acts like a hinge, allowing the foot to move up and down with a small amount of rotation. Any sudden movement outside of this range, repeated strain, overuse, or disease can all cause painful symptoms, swelling, stiffness and mobility problems. Most people suffer ankle pain at some point in their lives and there are many common ankle conditions that can be treated with pain relief and rest.

If your ankle pain is persisting over a longer period and cannot be relieved with conservative treatment, it’s a good idea to seek help from an orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist where your ankle condition can be diagnosed and treated through examination, imaging and surgery where necessary.
