The ankle is a highly specialized structure that absorbs the weight of the body and enables us to move. Experts estimate that the force and pressure on your ankles when walking can be up to two times your body weight. This pressure can increase with more vigorous movements such as running and jumping. With so much pressure on your ankles, they undergo a lot of wear and tear throughout your life and are highly susceptible to injury and trauma.

The ankle is a complex system of bones, ligaments, muscles, and joints that provides the structure and stability we need to move freely. If any of these components become compromised or weakened due to injury, overuse, degenerative conditions, or sprains, it can significantly impact your ankle’s ability to move and function properly.
