COMMON FOOT & ANKLE PAIN SYMPTOMS
Ankle & foot pain can be swept under the rug if you don’t think it’s dire. Ignoring ankle pain symptoms can make things worse over time. If you are unsure if the pain you are experiencing is worth calling a specialist about, here is a list of common symptoms that would cause you to make an appointment with one of our specialists:
Stiffness – stiffness can occur with ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, and arthritis. If you have been at rest for a long period of time, ankle or foot stiffness can occur more frequently. If exercise & proper foot wear don’t diminish the stiffness, don’t hesitate to contact our knowledgeable sports medicine doctors in Abilene, TX.
Swelling – swelling is a common symptom in ankle injuries due to the impact that has been brought upon the area. However, other things such as a heart condition can contribute to ankle and foot swelling.
Snapping/ Popping – it is quite common to experience a popping sound in your ankle without ankle or foot pain. This can be the snapping and stretching of the tissue lining the joints. If you are experiencing ankle pain when your ankle is snapping, you need to contact a physician. Our orthopedic doctor can figure out what the issue is and recommend the best next steps.
