Home :: Ankle Synovitis

Ankle Synovitis

Inflammation of the synovium, the smooth, lubricated lining of the ankle joint. The synovium's lubricating fluid helps the ankle move freely and prevents bone surfaces from rubbing against each other. Synovitis is often a complication of an injury, such as a fracture, or of collagen diseases, such as gout or rheumatoid arthritis.


  • Ankle joint.
  • Synovial membrane surrounding the entire joint.
  • Space between the joint and the synovial membrane.


  • Any injury to the ankle and ankle joint.
  • Bacterial infection (frequently gonorrhea).
  • Metabolic disturbance, such as an acute attack of gout or rheumatoid arthritis.

Signs & Symptoms

  • Pain and heat in the ankle.
  • No visible ankle swelling. Swelling and fluid accumulation is deep within the joint.


Follow your doctor's instructions. These instructions are supplemental.

  • Obtain treatment for any underlying medical condition, such as gout or infection.
  • For greater comfort, keep the foot elevated whenever possible.
  • You may need a walking plaster boot cast for 10 to 14, days.
  • After the cast is removed, apply heat frequently. Use heat lamps, hot soaks, hot showers, heating pads, or heat liniments and ointments.
  • Take whirlpool treatments, if available.
  • Massage gently and often to provide comfort and decrease swelling.
  • Chronic synovitis may require ankle strapping tiny workout or competition.

Home Diet

  • During recovery, eat a well-balanced diet that includes extra protein, such as meat, fish, poultry, cheese, milk and eggs. Increase fiber and fluid intake to prevent constipation that may result from decreased activity. Your doctor may suggest vitamin and mineral supplements to promote healing.

  • Tape the ankle securely from midfoot to midcalf before participation in contact sports. If taping is not possible, wear supportive elastic ankle wraps.
  • Protect the ankle with substantial support during sports activities for 12 months after a significant ankle injury.
