Ankle Care

We treat the following conditions:

*Anterior Impingement Syndrome of the Ankle*: When bone spurs form on the front of the ankle joint. They can cause pinching of the nerves inside the ankle. Doctors see this in athletes who have many small injuries to the ankle—particularly in soccer players

*Chronic Lateral Ankle Pain*: After a sprained ankle, some people have chronic or recurring pain on the outer side of the ankle. Swelling, stiffness, and difficulty walking are all symptoms of this condition.

*Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus*: The talus is the bottom bone of the ankle joint. After a traumatic injury to the ankle, a part of the talus surface may come loose and lodge somewhere in the ankle, causing the ankle to freeze in place. Surgery may be required to remove the fragment and reshape the talus to move smoothly again.

*Peroneal Tendinitis*: On the outside of the ankle, the peroneal tendon connects the heel to the muscles that allow movement. Overuse can make the tendon thicken and enlarge, a painful situation that will heal with rest and a special boot to permit walking.

*Sports-related Sprains and Instability*:
Ankle sprains are the most common reason that people find themselves in the Emergency Department, and many of these are the result of instability—collapse of the ankle under stress. The Foot and Ankle Institute can treat any kind of sprain or instability, helping you maintain your mobility and avoid such accidents in the future.

*Stress Fractures*:
Tiny fractures may not seem like major injuries, but they can be a sign of osteoporosis or other more serious conditions. If you have pain and swelling on the top of your foot or in your ankle, call the Foot and Ankle Institute for an appointment in our Urgent Care department—even if the injury hasn't slowed you down.

*Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome*: On the inside of the ankle next to the ankle bone, there's a tunnel that contains—among other things—the posterior tibial nerve (see above). When the tunnel contracts because of an injury or abnormality, it compresses this nerve. You may feel something like an electric shock, a burning sensation, numbness, or shooting pain. Your doctors can recommend many non-surgical methods for reducing pain and relieving the symptoms.

*Ankle fracture*:
– This occurs when one or both of the bones of the ankle – the tibia or fibula – is broken. In cases where the fracture is unstable, surgical fixation is usually recommended.

*Ankle sprain*: – When the ankle twists and the ligaments are stretched and/or torn, causing pain and swelling.

If you suspect any of the above conditions, please make an appointment in our office.
