Our ankle doctors at Flagstaff Bone & Joint are recognized experts in the diagnosis and treatment of ankle injuries and conditions.
Ankle pain in patients is most commonly associated with trauma and sports-related injuries, such as a fracture, or an injury to the ligaments of the ankle, such as a sprain. However, agitation and discomfort may also occur due to overuse injuries, which can range from mild joint pain to Achilles tendonitis (medically referred to as tendinitis) affecting the Achilles tendon.
When to See an Ankle Doctor Near You
It may be time to visit a foot and ankle specialist near you in Flagstaff, Kingman, or Cottonwood if you think you may be suffering from an ankle injury or condition and/or are experiencing any of the symptoms listed below:
- Sudden intense pain
- Pain when you’re NOT bearing weight
- Pain that persists for more than two weeks
- Swelling that persists or worsens after 2 – 3 days
- Limited range of motion due to stiffness, weakness, or swelling
You should also seek medical treatment with an ankle specialist if you begin to feel feverish or if the area reddens, becomes warmer, and/or feels even more sensitive, as these are signs of an infection. Due to the constant stress and frequency of use, ankle pain generally does not subside without treatment.
