Foot and Ankle Conditions

Ankle Impingement

Ankle impingement is due to the compression of tissues within the ankle joint when the ankle is placed at an extreme end range of motion. People usually feel the pain at the front of the ankle. This is a common injury for people who are dancers, gymnasts or are performing kicking activities.

Symptoms of this condition depend on where the impingement is occurring, but common symptoms are:

  • Pain around your ankle
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Tenderness
  • A feeling of ankle instability

After assessing the joint, your physical therapist will work with you and create a plan of care that best fits your needs and goals.
