Why Do I Have Ankle Pain?
There are a number of ligaments which hold the ankle in place. Ligaments connect and hold bones to other bones. It is because there are so many ligaments holding the ankle in place that it is a strong stable structure. However, when the ankle is misaligned, sometimes following a twist or a fall, the ligaments are placed under an incredible amount of strain which causes microscopic tears.
If these tears are not addressed it can lead to destabilisation and pain in the ankle.
Your podiatrist can use x-rays to identify where the joints are out of position and come up with a podiatry treatment plan to move the joints into a better position.
