Quality ankle pain treatment in NYC begins with an accurate diagnosis of your discomfort by a Multidisciplinary Therapeutic Team. Why is this important? The ankle bears the weight of your entire body. Correct biomechanics and a solid structure are crucial to avoiding strains, sprains, and other conditions causing pain to the ankle.
Common Causes of Ankle Pain
Ankle pain is disruptive of your daily quality of life.
- Sprain or strain
Sprain is one of the most common causes of ankle pain. An ankle sprain occurs when the ankles ligaments connecting to its bones tear or are overstretched. Most ankle sprains are sports-related and occur when the foot rolls in action. This causes the outside ligaments surrounding the ankle to twist toward the ground – overstretching or ripping them.
Sciatica is a painful medical condition caused by the compression of the lumbar plexus. Nerves of the lumbar plexus run from the lower spinal column, through the ankle, and into the toes. Sciatica pain causes pain to the ankle.
Arthritis is a common cause of ankle pain – an inflammation of the joints. Osteoarthritis is the typical cause of pain in the ankles. Osteoarthritis is caused by repetitive wear and tear on the ankle’s joints. Osteoarthritis is a structural breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage in the ankles joints. Age is the primary factor contributing to osteoarthritis.
