Many different issues can cause ankle pain. The source of your discomfort largely depends on what structures within the joint are affected. A series of bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels make up the ankle, and issues in any of those can cause discomfort. The most common injuries include sprains, tendonitis, connective tissue ruptures, fractures, and arthritis. Tarsal tunnel syndrome, narrowed arteries, and bursitis are also culprits for joint discomfort.
If you’re struggling with ankle pain or weakness, don’t continue your normal activities without accommodations and hope it will improve on its own. In most cases, you need to have the condition examined and allow it to heal to restore the joint to full strength.
