Wear and Tears : It is more frequent if you’re over sixty. At sixty, there’s a high probability have almost walked an entire city. Your ankle becomes weak, and the muscles wear out; as a result, the pain is knocking at your muscles.
Overweight : An unhealthy amount of weight can lead to ankle pain as your weight rests and relies on your legs and other lower extremities.
Bursitis : Our bones have a fluid-filled sac that cushions them from grinding against each other. Bursitis is a condition that occurs when this sac is irritated and inflamed.
Sprains : This is the most common cause of ankle pain. Our ankle sprains whenever there is a tear or stretch in the ligament. It also happens when the ankle moves out of its normal position forcefully.
Infection : You’ve probably never heard you could have an infection in your ankle. Several infections, including cellulitis, can result in pain and, eventually, swelling in the ankle joint. A bone infection known as osteomyelitis can stem from a staph infection.
Fractures : A fracture is a situation where bones are broken. It ranges from mild to severe pain primarily due to an accident or injury.
Tendonitis : Tendinitis is very common in patients who overuse their tendons. When tendinitis occurs, the tendons become inflamed; as a result, performing simple activities becomes very difficult. In several cases, a patient suffering from this condition suffers intense and excruciating pain consistently.
Arthritis : Persistent pain and stiffness in your ankle might be arthritis. Arthritis occurs when the cartilage (tissues present in joints to cushion bones) tears down. This enables the bones to rub together, resulting in injuries. Arthritis is more common in people around their sixties.
Flatfoot : A shallow arch or none at all could cause pain and swell in the ankles and feet. In some cases, kids’ feet do not develop as they should; as a result, forms a flat foot.
Gout : This is a type of arthritis resulting from uric acid storage in the body. Typically, uric acid is flushed out with our urine. However, some people have excess leftovers that form crystals that settle in the joints. It is a harrowing experience.
