Have you experienced a dull ankle ache that became a sharper, more pronounced pain over time? You might be suffering from ankle tendonitis.
There are several sets of tendons that cross behind the ankle bones and in front of the ankle that perform various activities in walking and running. If overused or excessively stretched they can lead to considerable pain with activity — and during rest. If left untreated, these tendons can worsen from partial tears to complete ruptures.
If you suspect this type of injury it is best to seek professional help to rehabilitate the area and get proper anti-inflammatory medication. How Footwear Can Help
