Ankle fractures

A fractured ankle means one or more bones that form the ankle joint have broken. From one to many bone fractures, broken ankles can keep you off your feet from weeks to months and can affect people of all ages. In addition to the bones, we can also damage ligaments that help keep bones and joints in the right place.

Ankle instability

Perhaps one of the most common injuries we will all encounter in our lives and caused when the foot twists, the foot pointing downwards and the sole inwards, the full force of the body's movement is on the anterior talofibular ligament! This twisting of the foot can result in the tearing of the talofibular fibres that we commonly call a sprain. In more severe injury, other ligaments may also be torn or sprained.

Adult Aquired Flatfoot (AAFD)

Adult acquired flatfoot deformity (AAFD) is a condition that results in a fallen arch with the foot pointed outward and is caused by a variety of problems.

With orthotics, braces and physical therapy, no matter what the cause of AAFD, can be helped. Where these fail, surgery can be a beneficial way to help with the pain and deformity.

Ankle Arthritis

The tibia and fibula and the ankle bone talus form the ankle joint. This joint allows the foot to move up and down. The sideways movement of the heel principally occurs in the three joints (triple joints) under the talus (sub-talar, talonavicular and calcaneocuboid joints). Smooth articular cartilage covers the bones to allow them to freely glide over one another as the joints move.

Most commonly associated with previous injuries, osteoarthritis may occur spontaneously in the ankle joint. Severe sprains or repeated sprains can damage the articular cartilage of the ankle and lead to progressive arthritis as can fractures around the ankle joint.
