Are you suffering from inside ankle pain?

inside ankle pain | Healthy Life Foot Clinic

Do you ever feel an aching pain around your ankle or even up into your shin? Or do you feet feel weak or your arch is getting lower?

The most common cause of pain around the inside of the ankle or shin is what is a condition called posterior tibial tendinopathy – don’t you hate long medical names 😉 This name is often shortened to PTTD & following the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid), it’s a strained tendon that can become sore on the inside of the shin, under the inside ankle or side of foot. It commonly occurs when your foot has collapsed under your arch.

Now trying to “fix” this yourself is difficult but the most important tip is – GET NEW, SUPPORTIVE SHOES. This will help support your foot & ankle & reduce strain on the tendon.

But this a condition to get quickly & properly diagnosed & treated so it doesn’t become a much bigger problem. If you’re in pain call us today or book an appointment now by clicking on the “Make an Appointment”.

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
