Chronic Ankle Instability

People often say their ankle “gave way.” This is a sign of chronic ankle instability, a common ankle condition, especially for athletes.

Some common symptoms include:
  • persistent discomfort
  • pain
  • tenderness
  • swelling
  • repeated  turning of the ankle, especially on uneven surfaces or when participating in sports
  • ankle feeling wobbly or unstable

Chronic ankle instability often develops after an ankle sprain that was not properly treated or rehabilitated.
