  • Posterior ankle impingementPosterior ankle impingement is a condition that generates pain in the back of your ankle, especially during activities that require pointing your toes down. This condition happens when soft or bony tissue between the shin bone (tibia) and the heel bone (calcaneus) gets compressed. This causes inflammation and pain. Some people have a small bone (called the os trigonum) or a bony protuberance (Stieda process) in the back of their ankle. These bones can create friction in the ankle joint, causing this condition. Sometimes small pieces of bones can break off and get compressed.
