    Outside of the Ankle Pain or Lateral ankle pain is normally a chronic pain, as opposed to acute pain (pain that develops suddenly and is due to injury). This chronic ankle pain can have many different causes such as an acute ankle injury that was neglected and did not heal properly. It can also be caused by other conditions such as tendinitis (peroneal tendinopathy). This chronic pain can be exacerbated by strenuous physical activities such as running, jogging and other sports.

Front of the ankle pain, or anterior ankle pain also comes gradually rather than suddenly. This pain comes as the result of impingement or tendonitis. Impingement is the condition in which the normal range of the ankle is restricted due to a bony growth. Tendonitis is due to overuse of the anterior muscle on the outside of the shin bone.
