Ankle Pain

ankle pain

Ankle pain may occur due to a number of different reasons, including obesity. Patients who are obese may experience ankle pain more commonly than others because of the additional weight being carried by their feet. Athletes are also common patients who will likely experience some form of ankle pain. Since athletes are often involved in sporting activities that may result in them falling awkwardly and rolling their ankle or tearing the ligaments in their ankle, it’s important that they take certain precautions before beginning said activity.

Wearing proper footwear and athletic guards, as well as stretching before a sporting event, are great ways to help prevent injury to the ankle. If by chance you do sustain ankle injury, there are certain practices you can perform to help alleviate the discomfort. Icing the affected area, compressing the ankle, keeping the ankle elevated, and getting plenty of rest are all methods that may help lessen the pain that can come with having an ankle injury.

If you believe you’re experiencing an ankle injury, it’s highly recommended that you consult with a podiatrist for professional care and an advised treatment plan.
