What to do if you have ankle pain while riding?

What to do if you have ankle pain while riding?
Thank you
Change your stirrup length or change stirrups. Do heel strengthening and stretching on the stairs to help increase range of motion (looks like calf raises on the stairs but opposite). Sink your heels down and hold as a stretch, release and repeat
Try stirrups that have joints and move with your ankle as it bends. You could also wrap your ankles in bandages
Thank you for your advices
I use KT tape for my knees, shins, or ankles when they hurt
Adjust or if you can no stirrups
