The ankle consists of bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and muscles. Although it is strong enough to bear your body weight, it is very flexible and prone to injury and pain. Mild ankle pain may respond well to home treatments, but you should see your doctor for severe ankle pain, especially following an injury.

Ankle pain can include pain in the:

  • Ankle joint
  • Forefoot
  • Heel
  • Achilles tendon
  • Front and back of your shin

If you are experiencing pain in any of these areas, contact the skilled orthopedists at Comprehensive Spine Institute in Clearwater. We use evidence-based practices and state-of-the-art imaging technology to find the source of the pain and plan appropriate treatment.

What Causes Ankle Pain?

Ankle pain can be caused by injuries or just natural wear-and-tear on the joint from everyday use. Ankle conditions are more common among older people, but people can have them at any age, particularly if they participate in sports activities or put a lot of strain on their ankles on a daily basis.

Conditions that cause ankle pain include:

  • Fracture or dislocation of the ankle
  • Sprain/strain of ligaments of the ankle
  • Osteoarthritis of the ankle
  • Bursitis of the Achilles tendon
  • Inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and gout
  • Avascular necrosis

We carefully analyze images for any signs of damage caused by the conditions listed above. Our team focuses exclusively on orthopedic conditions, and we can often find things that a more generalized radiologist might miss.

Treatment Options

Our doctors provide extensive diagnostic and evaluation processes through x-rays, MRIs and ankle arthroscopy. We provide conservative care with physical therapy, taping, splinting and joint shots and surgery as indicated for fracture and ligament repair.

If surgery is necessary, our surgeons are certified in sports orthopedics and provide extensive acute care management and rehabilitation for sports injuries. We are familiar with numerous minimally invasive procedures that are less intensive than traditional open surgery. Our goal is to provide the patient with the most conservative and efficient treatment possible.
