Health Insurance for Ankle Pain and Tendinitis
Ankle pain and tendinitis refers to irritation or inflammation of a tendon, a thick fibrous cord that attach the muscles to bones. Ankle tendinitis can occur because of an ankle injury, fracture, strain, or medical conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or gout. Ankle tendinitis can affect the posterior tibial tendon, Achilles tendon, or peroneal tendon.
Some of the common symptoms associated with ankle pain and tendinitis are:
1. Pain when moving the affected joint or limb
2. Mild swelling
6. Stiffness of the ankle
7. Weakness in the affected area
8. Lumps on the affected tendon
This condition results in difficulty and pain during movement. Immediate treatment of ankle tendinitis includes elevation, immobilization of the area, limiting weight-bearing and applying an ice pack. And when the pain becomes unbearable it is imperative to go for a surgery to repair the ruptured tendon, to give it a chance to heal or to remove the deposit or lumps formed on it. Achilles tendon rupture often needs an orthopedic surgery.
