What Are Some Causes of Throbbing Ankle Pain?

It’s important to note that every person has a different experience with unique needs. Many factors are taken into consideration, such as health history, age and activity level. Often, throbbing ankle pain is caused by overuse or an acute injury, such as a sprain.

Repetitive-Use Injury

Throbbing ankle pain that gradually increases can be due to repetitive-use injuries. Many ankle injuries stem from those who do too much-too soon, load the joint with bad mechanics or exercise with improper footwear. 

Whatever the cause, it’s important to reduce the stress placed on your ankle and allow your body to heal. Make sure to take the time to rest your ankle. If your throbbing pain persists for more than a few days, it’s important to seek a physical therapist for treatment. 

Ankle Sprain

If you experience constant throbbing pain, accompanied by swelling or sharp pain when attempting to stand or walk, you might be dealing with something a little more serious. An acute injury, like a sprained ankle, can be caused by rolling or twisting the ankle. All it takes is a simple misstep for the ligaments in the ankle to become overstretched or torn.  

It’s one of the most common types of ankle injuries we treat at Twin Boro. When cared for correctly, the prognosis for these injuries is good.
