A syndesmosis injury is a severe twist of the ankle. The syndesmosis is where the tibia and fibula meet at the top of the ankle.
An injury can result in ankle instability and reduced ankle range of motion which can lead to a stiff and unstable ankle.
There is also a risk of fracturing your tibia and fibula with a syndesmosis injury. Please talk to one of our podiatrists at Canberra Podiatry to discuss your treatment options or referral for X-rays if required.
