Common causes of ankle pain are:
Lateral Ankle Sprain
High Ankle Sprain
Anterolateral Impingement Syndrome
Osteochondral Fracture of the Talus
The ankle is a hinge joint in which the medial malleolus (tibia) and the lateral malleolus (fibula) form a mortise into which sits the talus.
The talus forms a hinge allowing the foot to dorsi and plantar flex between the heel strike and push off phases of walking.
