Osteoarthritis of the ankle

Osteoarthritis in the ankle usually develops after trauma (often a fracture). This is in contrast to what happens in the hip or knee joint . Here it arises mainly due to degeneration (deterioration) of the joint. A small 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 limitation of mobility. An ankle brace is very suitable for effectively supporting your ankle in ankle osteoarthritis.

Cause of ankle osteoarthritis

As discussed above, osteoarthritis in the ankle does not just arise. Osteoarthritis in the ankle is in most cases caused by past injuries. In the past, the ankle may have been traumatized by sports, for example. An incorrect landing may cause the ankle straps to tear or break a bone. When recovering, it is possible that the position of the ankle is slightly different than before. This can cause peak stress on the cartilage - within the ankle joint. This can cause osteoarthritis in the ankle.
