An ankle pain treatment specialist is a type of interventional pain doctor who focuses on the treatment of ankle pain and other related injuries and conditions. Ankle pain treatment specialists are skilled at treating disorders and injuries of the ankle and lower leg and are trained to help treat pain and perform physical therapy in this area. They may also be trained in other types of therapy, such as PRP therapy, which may be used to treat ankle pain.

How do I know if my ankle pain is serious?


Some many signs and symptoms can indicate if ankle pain is serious, including:

– Severe pain not resolved with rest
– Marked tenderness to the touch
– Inability to walk
– Inability to bear weight on the ankle

What can cause ankle pain without injury?


While injuries are the common cause of ankle pain, pain in this area can also occur from a variety of conditions, including:

Arthritis — One of the most common forms of ankle pain without the presence of clear trauma is arthritis, which affects millions of people across the world. Multiple types of arthritis can affect the ankles, such as rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease, and osteoarthritis, a degenerative condition.

Gout — Another common condition that can affect the feet and ankles is gout; this condition is caused by a buildup of uric acid in the joints. This acid can crystallize, causing the soft tissues to inflame when movement occurs. Uric acid typically accumulates due to an unbalanced diet, so eating a healthier diet and managing weight can often help with gout-related ankle pain.

Bursitis — Bursae (singular, bursa) are fluid-filled sacs that help to cushion the joints and facilitate movement. If these sacs become inflamed, it results in bursitis, a condition characterized by swelling, stiffness, and pain.

Infection — Virtually any area of the body can be affected by an infection, including the ankles. This is more likely to occur if an open wound is on the ankle, or after foot or ankle surgery, as bacteria can enter an opening in the skin.

Scleroderma — Scleroderma refers to a group of conditions that are characterized by the thickening of the skin and/or connective tissues. If this condition affects the ankles, it can result in stiffness and pain.

Why do my ankles hurt so bad?


There are many conditions, injuries, and diseases that can cause mild to severe ankle pain, such as:

– Sprains, strains, and fractures
– Achilles tendon rupture
– Avulsion fracture
– Fibula fracture
– Stress fracture
– Rheumatoid arthritis
– Gout
– Infection
– Ankle impingement
– Metabolic disorders
