Ankle pain is due to insufficient blood circulation. Perhaps the ankle had a sprain, but that can also be caused by ankle instability, arthritis, gout, tendinitis, fracture, nerve compression, tarsal tunnel syndrome, infection, and poor structural alignment of the leg or foot. Ankle pain can be associated with swelling because of water retention, stiffness, redness, and inflammation in the area. The pain is often described as an intense dull ache that occurs upon weight bearing and ankle motion.
Initial treatment may consist of massage therapy like Generosa PPT technique to break up blockages. Rest, application of ice, elevation, and physical therapy, are among the options for natural remedies without SIDE EFFECT.
There are other treatments like, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen, and cortisone injection. But with these options there are side effects. A foot and ankle surgeon can best determine the cause of the ankle pain and appropriate treatment options.
