Ankle arthritis is an inflammation of the ankle. The main symptoms of arthritis are ankle pain and stiffness which worsen with age. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

The causes that lead to the onset of arthritis are multiple. The pain associated with arthritis is caused by the degradation occurring in the ankle. The hinges are made of:

  • Cartilage. It is a hard layer that allows bones to move smoothly over one another, covering the surface of bone. It can prevent the direct friction of the bones.
  • Joint capsule. This membrane surrounds the space between the bones and contains a synovial fluid that nourishes the cartilage. The synovial fluid is produced by the synovium (stratum synoviale).
  • Synovium (stratum synoviale). It secretes synovial fluid, found in the cartilage area.
