Posterior Ankle Impingement Treatment
How do we treat posterior ankle impingement?
Posterior ankle impingement can be treated by injecting a numbing medication into the area of the os trigonum. If the pain immediately diminishes, the problem is most likely to be posterior impingement of the os trigonum. An X-ray will confirm the existence of an os trigonum.
Ankle impingement surgery:
The ostrigonum is completely removed during surgery. Small incisions are made in the back of the ankle and the ostrigonum is carefully removed using a scalpel.
Ankle impingement surgery recovery:
After the ankle Impingement Surgery, you will be in a back slab and will require crutches for two weeks.
