Pain following an ankle sprain is common and is most likely due to poor initial rehabilitation. The most common cause of chronic ankle pain is sinus tarsi syndrome. Sinus tarsi syndrome occurs when there is a strain of the ligament in the sinus tarsi, which is a tunnel between the two bones that make up the rearfoot. Most of the pain of sinus tarsi syndrome is on the outside of the ankle and there is often a history of a previous ankle sprain. Sometimes there is no history of an ankle sprain in sinus tarsi syndrome and it can happen in a very flat or pronated foot. The most common treatment for sinus tarsi syndrome is manipulation. Often an injection is given into the sinus tarsi to help.
