About Foot & Ankle Pain

Foot and ankle pain can arise from many different areas; some from in and around the foot and others from the knee, hip and lower back most commonly. 

When the ankles and feet don’t function correctly they can affect the entire body. The muscles in the legs can become sore leading to a loss of mobility, uneven gait and hip and back pain.

The ankle bones are held together by muscles, ligaments and tendons. When an injury occurs it can impact all three structures as well as the bone. 

Our Approach to Foot & Ankle Pain

Some foot disorders may present with a mild ache but others can really affect someone’s ability to walk.

Chiropractic adjustments can be performed on many joints including the feet and ankles and can help to strengthen the ankles, and increase mobility, flexibility and stability.

Once a thorough consultation and examination has been completed and the origin and cause of the pain been ascertained, a bespoke care plan can be devised incorporating adjustments, stretches, rehabilitative exercises and ergonomic advice.

When I first visited I was very down about the back pain I was suffering to the point where I was really tearful. Alicia made me feel that it was ok to cry and it didn’t feel silly. After 4 months of treatment I am better than ever.

Relief Care

Our first goal is to relieve your symptoms as quickly as possible. The severity of your condition will determine the length of this phase. Typically, the number of visits in this phase is frequent and can involve multiple visits to the centre each week.

Rehabilitative / strengthen and corrective phase

During this phase of care, the goal is to remove the root cause of your problem and to restore optimal function. This phase of care is also dependent upon the severity of the problem. The frequency of care can still be multiple visits per week, but unlikely to be as frequent as the relief phase of care.

Wellness Care

Once your body has had the chance to heal, we believe it is important to continue with wellness care by having periodic adjustments to help prevent future problems and enable your body to continue to function at its most optimal level. Your lifestyle, health goals and practitioner’s advice will determine the frequency of care for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my foot and ankle pain worse at the end of the day?

This is also dependent upon the cause of your pain. Inflammation has had a chance to build up, and you may have been on your feet all day. If your foot and ankle pain is the result of a problem in your lower back, knees or hips, it is common for the symptoms to worsen as the day progresses.

How can Chiropractic help?

We have seen thousands of people with foot and ankle pain over the years and have had great results in helping those who consult us to achieve their health goals. We assess the entire body including the foot and ankle to ensure it is all moving well. Any misalignment can result in foot or ankle pain.

We also have a state-of-the-art TOG gait scan system (a computer system which records timing sequences as you walk across a pressure plate with over 4000 sensors)  to help assess if wearing a bespoke orthotic (insole) in your shoes would aid your foot and ankle pain.

To determine if we can help you we would perform a thorough consultation and examination and you would know prior to committing to care: what we have found, how we can help, how long it will take to get right, and how much it will cost.

Why is my foot and ankle pain worse in the morning?

This is dependent upon the cause of your pain. Symptoms can be worse in the morning because of a poor blood supply to the foot and ankle when you are resting.

How can I ease my foot and ankle pain?

If the pain is acute, using cryotherapy (ice packs) on the area for up to 20 minutes, two to three times a day can help to ease the symptoms. Remember to wrap a tea towel around the ice pack before placing it onto the foot and ankle, as this will help to prevent burns. The RICE acronym will stand you in good stead: Rest, Ice, Compress and Elevate the foot/ankle, keeping it above the level of your heart. 

For more chronic problems stretches and exercises which improve balance, as well as Chiropractic care can be effective at helping to provide relief.
