I have seen a lot of patients with ankle syndesmosis, I find that this goes undiagnosed a lot of the time and tends to be why patients with other ankle ligament injuries don't recover.
What is it?
Ankle Syndesmosis refers to the Syndesmosis or Syndesmotic ligament which connects the tibia and the fibula bones from the knee joint to the ankle joints. The tibia is the larger bone in the shin and takes most of the load when weight bearing. The fibula is the smaller bone on the outside of the leg.
