Treatments for Ankle Problems

Restoring Pain-Free Function And Strength

Solutions To
Your Ankle Problems

The ankle is made up of many bones, ligaments, muscles, joints, tendons and nerves. The complex structures within the ankles are designed to carry the body’s weight and perform a wide range of activities. Strengthening the leg muscles of the calf and shin will increase the stability of the ankle joint and help reduce ankle pain. Ankle pain is a common occurrence but it is important to determine the true cause of the pain to initiate the appropriate treatment.

This is a common ailment for athletes and weekend warriors alike. Inflammation in the Achilles tendon can cause tightness in the calf muscle, limiting your mobility.
