OS Trigonum Syndrome is a small extra bone at the back of the ankle. It may be there from birth or may develop throughout childhood or adolescence. Activities that involve repeatedly fully pointing the ankle can irritate the soft tissues around the extra bone causing the pain at the back of the ankle. It is common in dancers due to the constant pointing motion of the foot.
Common Symptoms include:
If the symptoms persist, surgery may be advised to remove the small piece of bone.
