Ankle Arthrosis Braces

Ankle  arthrosis commonly occurs after a major traumatic ankle injury. A pilon fracture may cause arthrosis of the tibiotalar (ankle) joint; a depressed calcaneal can cause subtalar arthritis.  Arthrosis is also seen after less severe injuries, especially if those injuries cause malalignment. Unlike the knee and hip, the ankle joint is relatively uncommon site for the development of primary (idiopathic) osteoarthritis.  Arthrosis of the ankle is also treated with methods that would not be used in the knee or hip, as loss of motion to limit pain is fairly much better tolerated in the ankle. Thus, bracing and (in more extreme cases) surgical fusion is a commonly used methods of treatment.  (Source: Musculoskeltal Medicine)
