WHAT CAUSES ANKLE PAIN & SPRAINS?
Ankle pain and a tendency toward ankle sprains are both issues that are usually caused by weakness or by repetitive strain to the cartilage & soft tissues. Many seemingly straightforward injuries to the ankle occur because of pre-existing weakness. Some people get heaps of ankle sprains and others don’t get any after all.
We take millions of steps per year on concrete, tarmac & paving which are many times harder than almost all natural surfaces. These hard surfaces exert highly unnatural stresses on the ankles over a lifetime. We don’t all suffer from ankle pain and ankle sprains however ( far from it ) and that’s because we find there’s also nearly always underlying issues.
Possible underlying causes of ankle pain & sprains include:
- Very high arches
- Flat feet or low arches
- Scar tissue
- Muscle weakness in foot & ankle
- Weakness in hip & knee muscles
- Glutes not firing properly
- Old injuries and sprains.
- Problems with running technique.
Which combination of the above you suffer from will determine exactly where your pain shows up.
