Ankle Pain

Problems with the foot and ankle are very common. They range from a simple trauma, like stubbing a toe or getting a blister, to more complex conditions such as torn ligaments or fractures. They may also be from improper biomechanics: that is, the relationship and movement between the bones and soft tissue.

The foot has 26 bones and many different ligaments, tendons, and muscles. There is also a very complex nerve-blood supply to all areas of the foot. Considering this complexity and the abuse a foot and take from constant standing, walking, and running. There is a rarely a person who has not had some pain in their foot or ankle.

One of the most common types of injuries to this area is to sprain the ankle. This happens to most runners at some point, and most athletes have done it more than once. The standard treatment is rest and ice. In severe cases, taping or a brace may be used for a while. However, one thing most people do not consider is what happens to the relationship of the many bones in a significant sprain or strain of the foot and ankle. The soft tissue of the foot may heal over time, but often with the bones in the wrong alignment.

The chiropractic approach to the treatment of this problem starts with an exam of the area and possibly X-rays. It is also common for the knees or the pelvis to be considered contributing factors. Once the problem is discovered, a course of treatment is started. The solution may be as simple as adjusting the foot back into proper alignment. In more severe cases, taping or bracing may be used for a short time.

Another very common treatment is to fit the patient for a set of custom orthotics. An orthotic is something that is worn in the shoe and provides support for the foot, especially the arch.

Whatever the foot or ankle injury might be chiropractic care is the natural and non-invasive way to healing and renewed health.
