Don't Get Surgery as Treatment

Every year millions of hip, knee, and ankle surgeries are performed worldwide. Countless more struggle with chronic pain and may be living with aches and soreness that has never been addressed by a healthcare professional. It is understandable for people to shy away from treatments because of the risks associated with medications and surgeries. Thankfully, chiropractic treatment offers a safe and non-invasive treatment to surgery. A chiropractor is a musculoskeletal healthcare expert trained to diagnose, treat, and manage complaints such as ankle pain.

What You Need to Know

The ankle is a complex joint and functions as a conduit between the leg and the foot. It is made up of three bones and many connecting ligament, tendon, and muscles. There are many reasons why your ankle may be hurting. Some of the more common causes include:

  • Sprain
  • Muscle strain
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Dislocation
  • Fractures

An average person walks over 170,000 kilometres in their lifetime – imagine how much stress your ankle and feet have to withstand! When your ankle doesn’t function properly, it can give you leg pain or pain on the underside of your feet. American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) estimates that there are 25,000 cases of ankle sprains each day. That works out to nine million sprained ankles each year! Research has shown that up to 40% of ankle sprains are not adequately treated and the re-injury rate after an ankle sprain can be as high as 80%. Ankle pain can be serious business!

Chiropractic can be very effective for treating ankle pain. Your chiropractic will assess your ankle to determine the source as well as the causes of your pain. Once they have been identified, manual techniques such as IASTM (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation) and Dry Needling may be utilised to address the tenderness and swelling. Movement-based such as Active Release Technique and Muscle Energy Technique will help to improve your range of motion. Once your symptoms start to subside, your chiropractor will prescribe you with strengthening exercises or restore normal biomechanics of your ankle with Neuromuscular Re-Education.
