Did you sprain your ankle from playing a sport or running? You most likely went to the emergency room or your doctor and x-rays of your ankle were taken. Even if you received an Aircast ankle brace, your ankle pain may still be there because of a condition called peroneal tendonitis. Watch a New Jersey foot doctor explain more about this ankle condition in this video.
A common yet painful problem people have after an ankle sprain is not with the ankle ligament or the sprain itself but rather inflammation of the tendon on the outside of the ankle bone. If you still have pain in your back outside ankle bone, a New Jersey podiatrist can easily treat your ankle pain with a cortisone injection to the area and a soft splint.
Call the Family Foot & Ankle Specialists to receive treatment today. If peroneal tendonitis is left untreated the tendon can tear, and you may require surgery. To learn more, request our free book on foot care or call our Piscataway and Hillsborough podiatrists today at 908-874-8030 or 732-968-3833.
