One of the most common causes of ankle pain is a sprain. An ankle sprain, possible in either the inner or outer ligaments that surround the ankle, occurs when a ligament is suddenly stretched, resulting in either a partial or complete tearing of the ligament.
Another condition that causes ankle pain is tarsal tunnel syndrome, a compression of nerves in the ankle joint as it passes under the supportive band surrounding it. When this nerve becomes pinched or entrapped, inflammation and pain, which can be severe, can occur. This condition is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrist.
