One of the most common reasons why people seek the care of a medical professional is pain or discomfort. Pain can show up in almost any location throughout the body and it is important for everyone to know that medical care is available. One of the most common locations that people can develop pain is in the ankle.
Ankle pain can be caused by a variety of medical problems and can present in a variety of ways. If you are looking for ankle pain treatment in Austin or the surrounding communities, Dr. Gravely and his team are here to help.
If someone is suffering from ankle pain, there are a few common causes of this discomfort. Some of the most common causes include:
Ankle Sprain: This is one of the most common reasons why someone has ankle pain. An ankle sprain can happen when someone takes an awkward step going down the stairs, steps in a hole in the ground, or lands awkwardly on their foot while playing sports. An ankle sprain can lead to ligament damage that manifests as pain.
Arthritis: Arthritis is another common cause of ankle pain. In arthritis, inflammation causes the cartilage in the ankle to degrade. As a result, the bones start rubbing together and inflammation develops. Over time, the inflammation gets worse, as does the pain.
Ankle pain can present with numerous symptoms. These may include discomfort, redness, swelling, and a loss of mobility. This can make it hard for someone to walk from place to place, inhibiting their daily routine. Fortunately, there are treatment options available.
