What causes cramps in the tendon above the ankle?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jerry Miles
25 years experience in Podiatry
Use Vs Nerve: Most cramping can be traced to over use of the tendon. Some times orthotics can support the arch and allow the tendons to work less and reduce pain/cramping. Nerve and some electrolytes can cause cramping.
