Diagnosis

Diagnosis

A Physiotherapist will assess the motion in the ankle and foot joints by feeling how they move in order to ascertain if there is a restriction in motion. The ligaments are tested by stressing them in the direction they are designed to work. It is also essential that the stabilisers of the ankle are assessed to ensure they are functioning correctly and the brain is not utilising the toes to help balance the foot as this ‘trick’ will fail when the ankle is under the most load leading to loss of control and injury.

In less traumatic injuries a Podiatrists opinion is often sort to assess if there are problems in the foot or ankle during walking and running that may cause adverse forces through the ankle leading to overuse and pain.
