Ankle pain is a common complaint among people across the globe, including right here in the Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater, Florida, area. That’s because the ankle is a complex system of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that must frequently bear the weight of the body. Its intricate anatomy and frequent motion renders it highly susceptible to several injuries and diseases, including but not limited to:
- Various forms of arthritis
- Achilles tendon ruptures
- Ankle sprains and fractures
- Bone spurs
Any one at any age can experience ankle pain, including young, athletic adults who are otherwise healthy. Living with ankle discomfort can be difficult, as the ankle joint plays a key role in several basic movements like walking. Consult with an orthopedic specialist if you would like to experience relief for persistent ankle pain that does not improve with time.
