Ventral impingement

Soccer ankle – jamming of the ankle joint

Impingement of the upper ankle joint causes load-dependent pain and a blockage in the range of motion. The range of motion of the affected foot is sometimes significantly restricted in ventral impingement. Especially climbing stairs is perceived as painful. Constant micro-injuries are the main cause of upper ankle joint (OSG) impingement. People who play certain sports, such as soccer, are in the main risk group. The condition is therefore also known as Soccer Ankle or Footballer’s Ankle.
