Your ankle is both strong and flexible, bearing the weight of the entire body. It is an important joint for walking and running and can become injured during even simple activities. The ankle contains many complex fibrous tendons and ligaments. Tendons provide ankle motion adn connect the muscles in the lower leg to the bones of the ankle and foot. Ligaments help stabilize the ankle joint and connect bone to bone.

CONDITIONS OF THE ANKLE:
 
Tendonits-an inflammation or slight tearing of tendons, usually cuased by stress or overuse of the tendons. Pain, swelling, inflammation, and irritation are the most common symptoms. Achilles tendonitis is most common.
Achilles Rupture- Complete tear, rupture or "pop" of the Achilles tendon, usually occurring from overuse or a sudden motion such as junping, climbing stairs or sprinting. Immobilization and surgical repair may be necessary; rehabilitation can take several months.
Sprains- the stretching or tearing of the ligaments in the ankle, usually cased by the inward twisting of the foot. Sprains can range from mild to severe, depending on how badly the ligaments are torn. Complete ligament tears are severe sprains.
Strains- an inflammation of the tendons that connect muscles to the bones and is usually the result of overuse. Pain or swelling typically occurs. If untreated, a strain can develop into tendonitis by the tendons pulling apart.
Plantar Fascitis- Inflammation of the ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) and supports the longitudinal arch. Pain begins as a dull pain in the heel or arch and is usually greatest in the morning or after resting.
Contusion- occurs when there is a direct blow to the ankle, causing tenderness, limited range of motion, deep bruising and/or inflammation.
