Impingement syndrome of the ankle is defined as painful mechanical limitation of full ankle movement secondary to osseous and/or soft tissue abnormality. These conditions occur more commonly in active people and athletes probably because recurrent subclinical injury is an important factor in development of the syndrome. Impingement syndromes of the ankle are categorized according to their anatomical site around the ankle joint. Anterolateral, anterior and posterior impingement has been extensively described in the orthopaedic literature. The purpose of this article is to review the clinical feature and management of anterior impingement syndrome of the ankle.
