Medial Ankle Pain

Medial ankle pain refers to pain on the inside of the ankle which is not a sudden acute ankle injury. Pain may come on gradually or from an acute injury that has not healed properly. We explain the most common causes, some less common medial ankle injuries and important conditions that should not be missed.

Tibialis Posterior Syndrome

Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction or PTTD is a dysfunction of the posterior tibialis muscle, resulting in a fallen arch, or flat feet.

Medial Calcaneal Nerve Entrapment

Medial calcaneal nerve entrapment has similar symptoms to that of tarsal tunnel syndrome. Pain will radiate from the inside of the heel out towards the centre of the heel.

Medial Malleolus Stress Fracture

The medial malleolus is the bony bit on the inside of the ankle. A stress fracture of the medial malleolus can occur but is very rare.
