A common problem

Mr Andrew Goldberg has issued a warning that keen runners who have recurrent ankle sprains may eventually face arthritic problems.

Arthritis occurs when the cartilage between the bones in the joint is worn away, leading to trouble with movement.

After the ankle is initially injured, the joint can wear away very quickly.

However, more evidence is necessary to prove that ankle replacements are a better choice to treat arthritis than ankle fusion.
