Ankle and foot pain – Clinic 360 | Leeds
The ankle joint is placed under extreme compressive forces during walking, even more with running and jumping. Whilst joint degeneration is not uncommon it is not as common as osteoarthritis of the knee or hip.
That said, the ankle joint can be a source of significant pain and limit a person’s mobility. The ankle joint is also prone to ligament sprains and tendinopathies, if these are left untreated they can become chronic. It is essential to regain full ankle joint mobility and strength and balance for an individual to return to normal function. The recovery of ankle sprains, tendinopathies, fractures and joint degeneration can be improved with appropriate and structured rehabilitation. Sometimes injection therapy can assist by decreasing excessive inflammation.
