Ankle Tendonitis Symptoms
Ankle tendonitis is a condition where the tendon has inflammation. The three tendons commonly afflicted causing ankle pain are:
- Posterior tibial tendon: located on the inside of the ankle
- Peroneal tendon: located on the outside of the ankle
- Achilles tendon: connecting the ankle to the calf muscle
Most commonly, tendonitis is caused by trauma, arthritis, stress, or overuse, but can also be caused by other related illnesses. Symptoms of tendonitis may be tenderness, painful to the touch, and swelling in the affected area. These conditions usually come immediately after the tendon is aggravated or inflamed resulting in ankle pain.
Ankle Tendonitis Treatment
Our ankle specialist will examine the ankle for tendonitis and prescribe a treatment plan. Relief of ankle pain generally comes immediately if treatment instructions are followed closely. The recommended treatment may include:
- Support such as a brace
- Exercises that stretch the ankle
- Icing the area on a schedule
- Special shoes or pads
- Changing activities that may aggravate the tendonitis
- Extracorporeal shock wave therapy
If the ankle tendonitis does not respond to non-surgical approaches and ankle pain persists, surgical options are available. Our ankle specialist may use surgery to clear the affected tissue and repair the tendon if ruptured.
