  • Achilles Pain

    Pain at the back of the ankle is usually related to the achilles tendon and comes on gradually over time. A sudden onset or acute achilles tendon injury may be a partial or even complete rupture of the achilles tendon which needs urgent medical assistance. Thompson's squeeze test can be done to rule out a complete achilles tendon rupture. More commonly achilles tendonitis or similar injuries tend to occur over time.

  • Lateral Ankle Pain

    Lateral ankle pain is pain on the outside of the ankle which usually develops over time as opposed to an acute ankle injury such as a sprained ankle which happens suddenly. Chronic ankle injuries can occur after an acute ankle injury which has failed to heal properly or was not treated correctly in the beginning. The most common causes of gradual onset pain on the outside of the ankle are peroneal tendinopathy (tendinitis) and sinus tarsi syndrome.
