A sprained ankle is the top cause of ankle pain. You can also experience ankle pain due to health problems, such as gout, arthritis, and osteoarthritis. More specific causes of ankle pain include stress fractures, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, and tarsal tunnel syndrome. If you are suffering from ankle pain, especially chronic or reoccurring ankle pain, you may want to get medical help. Your podiatrists at Advanced Foot Care of New Jersey will diagnose and treat your ankle pain effectively so to avoid long-term and irreversible damage to your ankle joint and foot.
An ankle is a complicated joint made up of muscles, tendons, and bones. If there is damage or stress to these connecting tissues or bones, you can experience ankle pain. When you first experience ankle pain, you want to get treatment immediately to prevent increased stress on your ankle. The condition can become more advanced and result in more severe pain. The pain in your ankle may occur on the backside of the ankle in the Achille's tendon, or it can be along the inside or outside of your ankle. Sometimes ankle pain is associated with foot pain caused by muscle strains, stress fractures, and broken bones.
If your ankle or foot pain shows certain symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Anant Joshi or Dr. Marc Kitrosser in New Jersey as soon as possible. For pain that is severe and accompanied by swelling, this is a sign of infection internally that could advance to a very serious condition if not treated effectively. An infection is indicated by redness, heat, and tenderness in the ankle or foot. You could also have a fever of more than 100 degrees F. If your ankle or foot has an open sore or is severely deformed, you want to get medical help immediately. If you are unable to stand on your foot or walk without assistance contact Dr. Joshi or Dr. Kitrosser for an appointment.
