Ankle Pain Diagnosis & Treatment Options
There may be several reasons that you are suffering from ankle pain. A Norridge podiatrist will need to assess the circumstances and possibly take an x-ray to determine the cause of the problem. Some of the reasons for pain could include the use of improper or unsupportive footwear, overuse or taxing your ankles, a fall or slip and even genetics.

There are several treatments that might be a good fit for your situation including regular icing, exercises and in some cases surgery to correct a long-term problem. Once you have met with the professional you will be able to better make the right choice for you.
