Foot & Ankle Pain

foot and ankle painFoot and ankle pain has many causes. Including sprains, strains and overuse injuries, heel spurs, plantarfasciitis and jammed or dropped foot bones. Having had a twisted ankle, even if it happened several years ago, can result in later years in foot, ankle and knee pain.

The osteopathic approach is to investigate and treat any disorders in foot and ankle mechanics. When the bones are in their right place and the ligaments are doing their job, muscle strength returns and the foot and ankle are able to heal themselves.

Specific exercises are often prescribed to build strength and support for the injured joint.
