Causes of Ankle Pain
Ankle Pain Relief
Ankles are complex joints involving a variety of muscles, bones, tendons, and nerves that must work together to move and flex in a wide range of motion. At the same time, they must be strong enough to support the full weight of your body as you walk, run, and jump. With all these responsibilities, it is no wonder ankles are susceptible to injury and pain.
Besides sudden injuries such as breaks, sprains, and tendon tears, ankle pain may also be caused by arthritis, gout, Achilles tendonitis, and bursitis. Even minor sprains can take a long time to heal.
To recover from minor injuries, you can use home treatments such as ice, rest, and keeping your ankle elevated. Laser treatment is shown to speed recovery by reducing inflammation, increasing circulation, and stimulating cell regeneration.
