    Ankle pain 3 months

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    Hi all,

    So I have this persistent pain on the outside of my left ankle, just below the "knobbly bit". Not excruciating by any means, maybe around 3-4 out of 10 but enough to feel like it's trying to tell me something, and to prompt me to take it easy when exercising, playing with kids etc.

    Came on about 3 months ago for no reason that I can recall (no sudden injury). Doesn't seem to be getting any better or worse. Wearing an ankle support/strap makes it feel better while wearing it, but it comes back pretty swiftly after taking it off, and I feel like I'm becoming dependent on it rather than fixing the root issue.

    It's pretty much exactly where this line is pointing:

    If I try to tip my foot on its side (inversion?) it feels really sore/tight and won't go as far as my right one will easily and painlessly go.

    Feels like a strain I guess but I can't remember straining it and it isn't getting any better, despite me not doing anything "silly" with it over the last few months, just walking, gentle exercise, pottering around house etc.

    Any advice on what this could be and what I can do about it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    If you have peroneal tendonopathy, then you know arch supports and anti-inflammatories (like ibuprofen 600 mg three times daily) are used. Given that you have reduced inversion, you might have some joint hypomobility for which a lateral calcaleal glide has been found helpful:

    Hensley, Craig P., and Alicia J. Emerson Kavchak. "Novel use of a manual therapy technique and management of a patient with peroneal tendinopathy: a case report." Manual therapy 17.1 (2012): 84-88.
    Novel use of a manual therapy technique and management of a patient with peroneal tendinopathy: A case report - ScienceDirect
    grab heel and slide it laterally while holding it over the edge of something and repeat 10 times - should not cause pain.
    In above case it quickly helped.
