Inflammation of any ankle tendons and its lining synovial sheath

Causes:

Strain from unusual use or overuse of muscles and tendons in the ankle.

Direct blow or injury to the ankle.

Repeated ankle injury.

Degenerative changes or inflammatory arthritis.

Symptoms:

Constant pain or pain with motion.

Limited motion of the ankle.

Crepitation (a “crackling” sound when the tendon moves or is touched).

Heat and redness over the inflamed tendon.

Diagnosis:

Doctor will ask you for xray to rule out bony problems and blood inv to rule out infection

And may ask for mri scan if problem is long standing and not subsiding with conservative treatment

Treatment:

RICE PROTOCOL

  • Rest – Walking will be painful, so it’s best to avoid putting pressure on the injured knee and limiting activity while inflammation persists.
  • Ice – Ice should be applied for the first 48 to 72 hours or until the swelling subsides for 10 to 20 minutes no more than once per hour. Use of a barrier, such as a towel, is strongly advised to protect your skin. Heat should be avoided while inflammation is developing; once the swelling goes down, heat can help soothe the pain.
  • Compression -– Using a compressing wrap can help significantly decrease swelling. Ensure that the wrap is snug; however, if there is numbness, tingling, or swelling above or below the wrap, it’s probably on too tight and needs to be loosened.
  • Elevation – Raising the knee above the heart level for a few hours a day can aide tremendously in decreasing swelling.
