Have you sprained your ankle during a run, or are you experiencing ankle pain as a result of arthritis? Whatever the case, ankle pain can cause other areas of your body to feel the pain too. To get back to feeling like yourself again, it’s critical to understand the underlying condition or injury and receive the proper treatment to reduce your pain.
Ankle pain can be caused by a wide range of injuries or diseases. For the proper chiropractic treatment, it’s important to understand the root cause of your pain. Some of the most common causes include:
• Achilles tendinitis
• Ankle fractures
• Foot fractures
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Tarsal tunnel syndrome
• Sprained ankle
Ankle injuries that go untreated can result in chronic ankle pain and further injury. Think you may have an ankle injury? If so, you may experience other symptoms such as:
• Ankle instability
• Popping noise or sensation at the time of your injury
At Proactive Chiropractic, we take the time to discover what the cause is for your ankle pain before we create your treatment plan. We offer x-ray as well as a comprehensive exam, giving us insight into what chiropractic treatment will work best for your underlying condition.
During your exam, if ankle injury is found, resulting in inflammation, your chiropractor will recommend R.I.C.E or rest, ice, compression and elevation. However, as inflammation decreases, chiropractic adjustments to the ankle can be effective at helping you heal.
Not only does chiropractic treatment reduce ankle pain, but it can also help strengthen your joints, preventing further injury to the ankle. Dr. Khlebopros is knowledgeable in not only chiropractic care but also orthotics, focusing on foot and ankle pain.
Your feet and ankles are critical parts of your body for mobility and balance. At Proactive Chiropractic, we offer non-invasive treatments that go beyond the minimal relief of pain medication and invasive procedures.
