There is no single cause for ankle pain, yet it is important that the cause is accurately diagnosed by your podiatrist in order to develop appropriate treatment. The injury may stem from damage to the bone, muscle, tendon or ligament and a variety of tests can enable the source of pain to be located.
When the muscles surrounding the ankle are weak, your ligaments are not protected, will stretch and could result in a sprain or ligament rupture. Another type of ankle injury is a fracture or break. The recovery from a break or fracture can be effectively treated by a podiatrist.
The most effective ankle treatment involves a combination of hands on treatment and exercises prescribed by your podiatrist. It’s important to loosen tight muscles and strengthen weak ones when treating ankle anjuries.
Your physiotherapists‘ treatment plan is tailored to your history, injury and physical goals. Regardless of your ankle pain’s cause- surgery, injury or other causes, your podiatrist will provide you with the treatment and long term solutions for recovery.
