Ankle ligament rupture

Ankle ligament rupture

Have you been having sharp pain in your ankle, with no clue why? No history of trauma; not particularly active or athletic, but seem to have ankle pain, mainly on the inside, or outside of the ankle? You may or may not be overweight. You have been to the doctor, perhaps had x-rays, various types of treatment, but still have pain?

This discussion deals with one aspect of a painful ankle, that most non-foot specialists would fail to recognise. It deals with pain that is the result of nothing more than abnormal biomechanics of the foot. Biomechanics is defined as “the study of the mechanics of a living body, especially of the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure”. More simply stated, it’s the way the body functions regarding the musculoskeletal system.
