Different Types Of Ankle Injury
Ankle injuries are a very complex type of injury. There are different parts of the ankle you can injure, along with there being different levels of severity of the injury. Below are listed some of the more common injuries you will most likely see when encountering an ankle injury:
- Ankle Sprain - Occurs when one or more of your ankle ligaments have been stretched or torn.
- Fractured Ankle - Usually trauma or impact inflicted, this type of injury impacts the bone rather than ligaments.
- Stress Foot Fracture - This type of injury will occur from repetitive or excessive use of the ankle causing minute bone damage.
- Plantar Fascitis - This will most commonly be diagnosed when the patient suffers a sharp pain in their heel when walking. It is caused by the fascia band, which is tissue located in the arch of the foot that becomes inflamed.
- Achilles Tendonitis or Tear - Occurs when the tendon running down the back of the ankle becomes inflamed. This Tendonitis increases the likelihood of a tear which can either occur from repetitive inflammation damage build-up or a singular trauma event.
