Are you suffering from outside ankle pain?

Outside Ankle Pain | Healthy Life Foot Clinic

Does this sound like you – “My ankle feels weak & sometimes it gives way. It’s often painful & achey & I find it hard to walk/run – it feels unstable. Wearing sneakers is the only type of shoe I can wear. The more activity I do the worse it is. I have sprained it in the past & it’s never been right since”. Ankle pain can also reduce your ability to do simple activities like walking & gardening but can limit more demanding activities such as running & sport.

Pain around the outside of the ankle is very common. Common causes include ankle sprain, ankle weakness after old healed ankle sprain, tendon strain, nerve irritation, incorrect footwear & arthritis.

Seeing a Podiatrist is important because treating your pain & helping you return to activity requires an accurate diagnosis. Once you know what’s wrong, a plan can be put in place to relieve the pain, strengthen your ankle & get you fully mobile & active.

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.
