As with many other parts of the body, chronic or acute ankle pain is usually caused by injury, wear and tear, bone disease or congenital flaws. Environmental factors, such as shoes without proper support, high-heels or running and walking on uneven ground can all be problematic.
Ankle pain and injuries are very common because this area of the lower leg and foot bears the brunt of your body’s weight. When you take a misstep or come down on your ankle the wrong way, you’re exerting incredible force – which could result in a severe sprain. Even day-to-day walking and running can cause swelling and a lot of wear and tear.
So, whenever you’re experiencing ankle pain, it’s a good idea to seek advice from an orthopedic specialists to help prevent long-term complications.
