Default Anterior Ankle Impingment

I have seen an doc, about my ankles. It appears I have bone spurs on both ankles that are causing anterior ankle impingement and subsequent decrease in ROM of the ankle. Mobilizing and stretching doesn't seem to work since its a bone and scar tissue that is preventing the dorsiflexion of the ankle.

My question is, does anyone know of any olympic lifters who have the same problem and who are proficient in the lifts. Is there a way to get in a vertical squat without have good dorsiflexion? Greg has spoken multiple times about the need for ankle flexibility, but what if this is not possible?
