Ankle Pain Therapy in El Segundo
That pain in your ankle is typically caused by minor injuries that happen when you accidentally twist your foot beyond its normal range of mobility, resulting in the joints and ligaments of your feet to tear.
The parts that are often injured are the ligaments on the lateral part of your ankle. The ligaments on the inner medial part, or above the bone of your ankle, can also be damaged, but are rarely hurt. After you hurt your ankle, you may have some swollen ankles, difficulty to step or walk on the affected foot, throbbing pain, muscle tension, tightness on the injured foot, and weak ankle joints.
