How a Podiatrist Treats Ankle Pain

The exact approach to treatment will depend on the specific causes of your ankle pain. There are many potential causes. Your shoes may not provide proper support, for example. It’s also possible that you suffer from flat feet, which can stress the ankle and other parts of the foot.

Ankle problems are often the result of injuries. Many people will experience a sprained ankle at some point. You may have been playing basketball and landed wrong on your foot. Or perhaps you suffered a slip and fall while working around the yard. Uneven terrain is a common cause of rolled and sprained ankles.

It's also possible that a bone was broken or a soft tissue was torn. Tendinitis, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (TTS), and Talar Dome Lesions can result in ankle pain. The correct treatment will depend on the root cause of your aches.

Prescription-strength anti-inflammatory drugs can reduce pain and swelling, making you more comfortable as you heal. Orthotics and braces can reduce pressure on the ankle and provide better support. Taking some time off from playing sports or working in the yard may be needed. You might also have to avoid certain shoes, like high heels or flip-flops. In some cases, surgery, casts, and other treatments may be required.

Never Underestimate Mobility Challenges

Ankle pain may not seem like a big deal at first. However, the ankle is very complex, which is a major part of why podiatrists are so specialized. A small issue could quickly grow into a large problem that can lower your overall mobility and thus your quality of life.
