An Overview of Ankle Pain Causes and Symptoms

If someone is suffering from ankle pain, there are a few common causes of this discomfort. Some of the most common causes include:

Ankle Sprain: This is one of the most common reasons why someone has ankle pain. An ankle sprain can happen when someone takes an awkward step going down the stairs, steps in a hole in the ground, or lands awkwardly on their foot while playing sports. An ankle sprain can lead to ligament damage that manifests as pain.

Arthritis: Arthritis is another common cause of ankle pain. In arthritis, inflammation causes the cartilage in the ankle to degrade. As a result, the bones start rubbing together and inflammation develops. Over time, the inflammation gets worse, as does the pain.

Ankle pain can present with numerous symptoms. These may include discomfort, redness, swelling, and a loss of mobility. This can make it hard for someone to walk from place to place, inhibiting their daily routine. Fortunately, there are treatment options available.

Using Stem Cell Therapy to Treat Ankle Pain

Another treatment option for ankle pain involves the use of stem cell therapy. Stem cells are young cells that have not yet divided to become specific bodily tissue. Therefore, they have the potential to become almost any tissue type. Stem cells can be used to help certain cells of the ankle regenerate following a serious injury.

In stem cell therapy, stem cells are injected into the location of the injury. Then, gradually, the stem cells will divide to heal the damaged tissue. Instead of having scar tissue present, there are native cells that function just as well as the original tissue. This can be used to not only relieve ankle pain but can also be used to restore function to the ankle. This is why so many people have already come to rely on regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy for ankle pain treatment.

Using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy to Treat Ankle Pain

The plasma is the portion of the body’s blood that does not contain the red blood cells. Instead, plasma has a tremendous amount of healing proteins that can be used to help the body recover. Plasma is frequently rushed to the site of an injury, resulting in swelling; however, an ankle pain doctor can also inject the plasma directly into an injured body part, speeding the recovery process. PRP therapy is often part of a well-rounded chiropractic treatment plan and can help someone recover from an injury more quickly. Rely on PRP therapy for ankle pain treatment.
