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.
