Ankle Pain

The ankle joint is made up of three crucial bones, multiple tendons, nerves, tendons, and ligaments. Some ankle complaints could be chronic from for example an old injury or arthritis and some are acuter such as a recent fracture, tendon tear, nerve entrapment and etc. MRI, X-rays and sometimes CAT scans are used to assess why an ankle can be painful. Most treatments are conservative and some need surgical attention.
