Anatomy & Background


The human ankle is a multifaceted joint complex comprised of three separate joints in the region where the foot and the leg meet. It is necessary for these joints to possess a certain degree of strength, as they support the weight of the entire body. Increased strength translates into increased stability leading to higher standards of weight bearing, mobility, and adaptability for the entire body. The ankle, in conjunction with the foot, allows us to perform basic human functions such as standing, walking, running, and jumping while serving as connection to the ground. Its physiology allows it to withstand the stress of our body weight, as well as the ability to adapt and quickly react to changes in the environment and walking surface.

What Causes Tendinitis of the Ankle?


Tendinitis of the ankle is caused when the connective tissues in the ankle become inflamed. Tendons connect the muscles of the leg and foot to the ankle bones, anchoring these muscles and making them capable of flexing and extending. The tendons of the ankle consist of the peroneals, anterior tibialis, and Achilles tendon. Any of these tissues can become inflamed and cause pain. There are four different types of tendinitis in the ankle: Achilles tendinitis, Posterior tibialis tendinitis, perineal tendinitis, and anterior tibialis tendinitis. Treatment is unique to each condition, and only a medical specialist will be able to give an accurate diagnosis after a thorough evaluation is performed.
