The ankle area is composed of various components, including bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, skin, nerves, blood vessels, and so on. Pain (soreness) in this area can be triggered by many reasons, for example:
Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals (usually vitamins B1, B12, calcium, B6, potassium, magnesium) Ankle sprain (injury to the ankle ligaments) Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendons), tendon rupture Tenosynovitis (inflammation of the synovial membrane covering the tendons) Arthritis (inflammation of the joints ), for example due to rheumatoid arthritis (rheumatism), gout (gout), osteoarthritis Fractures (fractures) of the ankle Tarsal tunnel syndrome (pinched nerve in the ankle) Flat foot (flat arch of the foot) Dislocation (displacement) of the ankle joint Bursitis ( inflammation of the joints of the joints), etc. Pain whose intensity is so great that it limits you in your activities, you should consult your doctor immediately. If you have experienced an injury around the ankle, or if serious damage is suspected to any of the components that make up the ankle as mentioned above, then in addition to the physical examination, your doctor may also direct you to undergo X-rays, CT scans, or other tests. determine the origin of the pain.
In the meantime, you can do the following steps:
When pain appears, compress the ankle with ice cubes and take a break from excessive activity Pay attention to your posture when walking Avoid too stomping your feet that are often painful (for example when running or going down stairs) Avoid using high heels or shoes that are pillowed too hard and narrow Avoid overweight and obesity Do regular exercise, for example swimming, yoga Take pain relievers if necessary, for example paracetamol Do not massage sore ankles Hope it helps yes ..
