A sharp pain or discomfort in the ankle is commonly referred to as ankle pain. The pain can be due to an injury like a sprain or strain and can also be due to medical conditions like arthritis. Ankle sprain occurs when the ligaments get torn or overstretched. Sprains can be due to twist in the ankle which rips the ligament. It takes about one to two weeks for the injury to heal. Post healing, one has to take care as sometimes the ankle becomes permanently weaker or unstable and a small injury later might cause greater complications. Ankle pain products or ankle supports are used to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and expedite the healing process.

Treatment of Ankle Pain

The treatment of ankle pain depends upon the underlying cause of the pain. There are a number of treatments for ankle pain which include:
  • Splints - Splints are used to immobilize a person’s joint so that treatment can be administered easily and recovery is enhanced. Splints or stirrups are a great treatment option for ankle pain as they immobilize the ankle and prevent any further injuries. The reduced motion of the ankle also ensures relief from pain and reduced inflammation.
  • Braces – Braces and wraps are a combination of compression and immobilization at once. Made of stretchable yet sturdy material, braces allow for a general movement of the ankle but prevent any exertion or stress on it. The mild compression offered by braces also helps in alleviating pain and reducing inflammation. Once can also use a brace that use hot and cold therapy to treat ankle pain.
  • Compression Sleeves and Supports Compression sleeves are recommended for people who suffer from excessive pain due to inflammation. Compression sleeves help reduce inflammation and enhance the blood circulation in the ankle, thus reducing the pain. Ankle supports on the other hand are a great choice in cases where the ankle has been injured. They provide support to the ankle and reduce the stress and strain thus reducing pain.
  • Other Treatment Options – There are many other treatment options you can choose from which includes using pain relief gels and lotions. Ingrained with many powerful and efficient ingredients, these gels and lotions can be a great deterrent to pain. They also help reduce inflammation and improve the strength of the muscles. Foot orthosis and exercisers can rehabilitate the ankle to make it stronger and reduce the chances of frequent injuries in the future.
