Abstract

Posterior ankle impingement syndrome is the term attributed to the clinical disorder characterized by posterior ankle pain that occurs in forced plantar flexion. In this review article, we discuss the anatomy, aetiology, clinical and radiological features of posterior ankle impingement syndrome and consider the conservative and surgical management and the guidelines used for post operative rehabilitation. Finally we provide illustrative cases and review the biomechanical features of this condition in horizontal jump athletes.
