    Os Trigonum Syndrome/Posterior Ankle Impingement

    July 27, 2017, 8:59 pm

    "When an os trigonum is present, this accessory ossicle together with surrounding soft tissues can become wedged between the tibia, talus and calcaneus. This can lead to inflammation of the involved structures" (https://www.physio-pedia.com/The_Os_Trigonum_SyndromeImage result for OS Trigonum

    I want to make it clear and say that I have not been diagnosed with anything yet!

    Okay, so in the past few weeks/months I've developed pain in the back of my foot near my achilles tendon.  I get this pain whenever I go into plantar flextion, and the more often I do so, the more it hurts.  I have researched this a lot, and my description of my pain matches very very well with the description of Os Trigonum Syndrom.  I am going to see a doctor about it in a couple weeks.

    Because of this, I have been forced to do half reps during my last couple of calf workouts (since I figured that it would be better then to not train calves at all).  I know that this is less than ideal but I figured that by doing half reps, at least I won't lose my calf gains.  Obviously, as soon as I get this cleared up, I will go back to my normal calf routine (where I do full reps).

    Do you guys have any advice?  Is it better to do half reps for calves than to not train them at all?  Have you guys ever experienced Os Trigonum Syndrome/Posterior Ankle Impingement or anything simillar before?

    Thank you for your time, everyone.

    You know, I experianced something similar last year. All of a sudden I was out running and I got loads of pain in the same spot on both legs. It was random and I had no idea why it happened. I thought I pulled something or something was tight.

     

    I personally ignored the pain and kept running and stretching and used my calf exercises to help stretch the area as well. Not so much "heavy lifting" but using the weight of the machine for a deeper stretch at the bottom.

     

    for me it eventually went away on it's own but it was painful and annoying. I can't say you should do the same as I am uncertain of your pain and the cause of my own.. but just be careful and feel it out!
