WHAT CAUSES ANKLE PAIN & SPRAINS?
Pain and sprains in the ankle are usually caused by weakness or by repetitive strain to the cartilage & soft tissues. Many seemingly straight forward 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 issues however 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
-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.
