Inner Ankle Pain Causes and Solution

What causes inner ankle pain?

Pain on the medial ankle is more commonly known as inner ankle pain. The root of this condition is often the imbalance in muscle tone between inner and outer leg, especially focused around the calf region.

Locating the source of tightness

Tightness in the outer calf muscles tend to drop the arch, creating a flat foot causing a pull on the tendons of the muscles of the inner leg like those of the Posterior Tibialis.

On the other hand tightness on the inner leg from the posterior tibialis and even going all the way up to the adductors can cause over-tonation on the inner leg. Look for bulges and overdeveloped muscle or even toes pointing inward.
