The ankle is made up of numerous joints combined with muscles, ligaments and tendons. These various structures are responsible for the ankle’s wide range of motion, but also it more vulnerable to injury over time.
If you’re struggling with ankle pain, we can help. We specialize in a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
Am I a Candidate for Ankle Pain Treatment?
If you’re experiencing significant ankle pain, then you can benefit from treatment at Surgical Art of Inland Empire. Some causes of ankle pain include:

What to Expect During Ankle Pain Treatment
Pain relief comes in many forms. Your treatment will depend on the severity and cause of your ankle pain. A combination of rest, shoe inserts, icing, stretching, physical therapy and medication may be needed to alleviate your pain.
In some cases, arthroscopic surgery may also be needed. Arthroscopic surgery is a surgical procedure that involves inserting a small camera inside the ankle joint. Through other small incisions, your surgeon can precisely repair or remove the damaged structures.
