icon-anatomy-doctorAbout your ankles

Your ankles are considered hinge joints, comprised of bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons. These complex structures work together to move your foot in two primary directions.

The ankle joint is formed by three bones; your tibia (the shin bone), fibula (small bone in the leg) and the talus, (a large bone in your foot). The “round knobs sticking out”are your malleoli, which provide stability to your ankle joint.

Surrounding the joint are ligaments and a fibrous joint capsule that provide strength and stability. Tendons wrap around your ankle and attach to the large muscle of your leg, the most famous of which is the Achilles tendon.

Due to the complexity and intricacy of an ankle joint, it can be one of the most often injured, especially for athletes and those with active lifestyles.

icon-symptoms-doctorCommon causes of ankle pain

Ankle pain can be from a number of injuries, diseases or conditions. Ankle pain can sometimes be caused by an injury or condition of the foot.

Your ankle joint can suffer an injury to one of the ligaments, muscles or tendons that comprise the structure. You can also suffer injuries to the bones of your ankle, all of which could cause pain.

Sprains of the ligaments and tendons of the joint are the most common causes of ankle pain. In cases where the injury was more severe, a partial to complete tear of one of the ligaments or tendons of the ankle may have occurred.

To be certain of the cause of your ankle pain, contact the orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine doctors at Westchester Sport and Spine for specific diagnosis.
