What causes Ankle Pain?

The most common causes of ankle pain are sprains and other localised injuries. Sprains occur when the tissues that hold the ankle bones together are rolled, twisted or turned in an awkward or unnatural way, often during sport or intense physical activity.

Some people also report ankle pain as a symptom of other foot-related conditions – including Achilles tendonitis and ruptured tendons – and nerve damage. It can also occur as a result of arthritis (osteoarthritis), gout, blocked blood vessels or an infection in the ankle joint, although these causes are rare.

Ankle pain can often be accompanied by:

  • Swelling and tenderness
  • Redness
  • Bruising, which can range from mild to severe
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Burning sensations
  • Stiffness
  • Instability and problems bearing weight on the affected leg

How can you treat it?

In some cases, ankle pain can be mildly inconvenient for a few days, and will then start to improve on its own as the sprain or injury starts to heal. In others, it can take a lot longer for the ankle to recover, leading to reduced mobility and a much more significant impact on your everyday life.

In the first instance, you should try:

  • Resting up and keeping the weight off your ankle as much as you possibly can
  • Elevating the limb
  • Placing an ice pack on your ankle for up to 20 minutes, several times a day
  • Using a compression bandage to keep the swelling down
  • Taking over-the-counter pain relief medications (if you are able to)
  • Gently rotating the ankle in circular motions to regain natural movement

 

If the pain doesn’t start to subside after a few days, your doctor may suggest a foot or ankle brace, which will help to realign the joint and better distribute your body weight. In extreme cases, steroid injections can be used to reduce pain and stiffness in the affected area – but these are normally only used as a last resort.

While following the treatment advice above, you should also wear OrthoSole insoles inside your regular shoes.

How can our insoles help relieve your ankle pain?

All our Max Cushion insoles, Thin Style insoles and specialist sliders are suitable for customers who are suffering with ankle pain. These inserts come with metatarsal and arch support pieces, which can be adjusted as necessary to provide you with the most suitable level of support.

We would suggest using Firm arch and metatarsal pieces wherever possible, as these will give you the most effective cushioning – but if you find them to be too uncomfortable or intrusive, you can swap them out for Light or Medium inserts in a matter of seconds.
