Common Causes of Ankle Pain
Arthritis is a broad term that describes dozens of different types of joint inflammation and irritation. The most well-known types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, commonly affect the ankle joint. Arthritis can occur due to a variety of reasons, including a history of joint injury, family history, and lifestyle.
There are several important ligaments in and around your ankle joint that are necessary for both ankle stability and mobility. These ligaments can become injured in slips, trips, falls, and even auto or work-related accidents and cause swelling, ankle instability, and pain. If left untreated, these ligaments can eventually lead to decreased mobility and scar tissue formation.
Tendonitis & Muscle Strains
Chronic and repetitive strain on the ankles (especially if the person has postural abnormalities or body mechanics that place excessive pressure through the ankle) can lead to muscle inflammation, damage, and pain.
