Causes and Symptoms of Ankle and Foot Pain

Ankle pain refers to discomfort affecting the ankle joint, while foot pain can occur in various areas of the foot, including the heel, arch, and toes. Notably, pain in these areas may be due to various reasons such as injuries, arthritis and overuse.

Common causes and symptoms include:

  • Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursae, fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones in the ankle joint.
  • Fractures: Broken bones in the ankle, ranging from mild to severe.
  • Sprains: Ligament injuries resulting from the ankle rolling forcefully out of its normal position.
  • Tendonitis: Inflammation of the tendons that connect muscles to bones.
  • Arthritis: Joint inflammation and stiffness, often caused by wear and tear or injury.
  • Flatfoot: The absence of an arch in the foot, causing pain and swelling.
  • Gout: A type of arthritis caused by the buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints.
  • Infection: Infections such as cellulitis or osteomyelitis can cause swelling and pain in the ankle joint.

How Chiropractic Can Restore Your Well-Being

At Physicians Plus, our team of experienced chiropractors is equipped with a range of techniques to provide effective treatment for ankle and foot pain. The primary goal is to address the root cause of your pain and provide long-term relief. A few of the benefits include:

  • Pain Alleviation By Addressing Underlying Issues: Chiropractic serves a vital role in enhancing the health of ankles and feet. The pain and dysfunction associated with ankles and feet sometimes stem from improper habits related to movement. By rectifying these issues, chiropractic not only mitigates the pain but also diminishes inflammation, thereby improving the range of motion in the ankle and foot.
  • Treatment of Specific Conditions: Chiropractic adjustments prove beneficial in addressing particular foot and ankle conditions. These conditions may include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and sprains. The adjustments work towards enhancing joint mobility and reducing tension in the surrounding soft tissues, which fosters faster healing and aids in preventing future injuries.
  • Promotion of Holistic Health with Exercises and Therapies: Chiropractic care extends beyond adjustments to include exercises, stretches, and other therapies. These additional practices aim to improve foot and ankle health and deter future complications. By incorporating these practices into their treatment approach, chiropractors offer a comprehensive solution to foot and ankle issues, focusing not only on immediate relief but also long-term health and prevention.
