Safe and fundamental treatment by self-sustaining power and the natural self-healing process.
The ankle is the region where the foot and leg meet. It is comprised of many bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles. While it is strong and flexible enough to easily bear and support the weight of the human body, the ankle may suffer from pain or injury due to its important workload. Pain may occur along the Achilles tendon on the back of the ankle, or on the inside or outside of the ankle joint.
Causes of Ankle Pain
In most cases, ankle pain is caused by injuries such as sprains and ligament tearing or stretching. While these injuries are often related to sports, they can also occur from recreational events, work activities, overuse or even by taking a misstep. Ankle pain might also occur as a result of direct injuries to ankle bones, tendons or muscles in the ankle area.
