Ankle arthritis... That's a tough one. You could try a topical homeopathic ointment (or cream) called traumeel [http://www. Traumeel. Us/].

See below. Wear shoes that have ankle support or ace wrap it.
Natural supplements. There's always anti inflammatories such as Motrin or Ibuprofen that you could try. I've come across some research that looked into glucosamine and chondroitin supplements. You could get these at any pharmacy or vitamin shop. Rest is key.
Ankle arthritic pain. Most arthritis of joints give some sort of pain; sometimes the pain is due to the changes in the joint due to cartilage damage, damage to the articular surface, joint mice or a inflammatory response. The ankle joint is a hinged joint that must be able to dorsiflex, plantar flex, invert and evert. If it can't then pain ensues.
Home remedies. Some home remedies include soaking the ankle in a small basin with warm water and epsom salts. Another one is to use topical capsaicin cream, or topical traumeel creame around the joint. You can gently tape the ankle to give you additional support. You should see a podiatrist who can direct you.
