The cause of OCD is still unknown, it is thought that calmative microtrauma (overtraining), especially in children and young adults, may be a reason. But there may be a genetic component too.
- Pain – especially triggered by increasing physical activity
- Swelling and Tenderness around the ankle joint
- Reduced ankle joint range of movement (stiffness)
- A sensation of weakness or instability in the joint (often secondary to the sensation of pain)
Cracking and joint locking – this only occurs in severe cases
These symptoms are significant if they are PERSISTING despite rest and appropriate treatment.
