Osteoarthritis in the ankle usually develops after a trauma (including fracture). This is in contrast to what happens in the hip or knee joint . This is mainly caused by degeneration (deterioration) of the joint. A slight change of position of the joint can have major consequences for the load on the joint and this can cause a lot of pain and a mobility limitation. Often you notice that you are more difficult to climb the stairs, but you can also walk away and you can stand harder on your toes. In addition, there is often pain to feel around the ankle joint, but certainly at the front of the ankle.
As discussed above, osteoarthritis in the ankle does not just occur. Osteoarthritis in the ankle has in most cases been caused by injury from the past. In the past, the ankle may have been traumatized by, for example, exercising. In the event of a wrong landing, it may be that the ankle bands rupture or the ankle may break. With the recovery it may happen that the position of the ankle is different than before. As a result, peak load can occur on the cartilage within the ankle joint. This can cause osteoarthritis in the ankle.
