Ankle/Foot Pain

When people think of chiropractic care they tend to think of treatment for the lower back, neck or headaches. What they may not be aware of is that chiropractors treat the whole musculoskeletal system, and this includes the ankle and foot.

Studies estimate that around 20% of Australians will report foot pain, aching or stiffness in their lifetime. This number is higher in females, those aged over 50 and obese people.

Other things that can cause ankle/ foot pain

Trauma, like a rolled ankle and will get worse over time

Poor posture

How we help

At Cleveland Chiropractic we take a functional approach to care because there can be many factors involved in treating low back pain. First, we need to establish what is causing your pain and dysfunction. Orthopaedic, neurological, and functional movement examinations are performed to establish an accurate diagnosis.

Once we have an idea of what is going wrong, we will discuss and explain these findings with you. We want to create a treatment plan to get you moving well again ASAP and an environment where we can work together for the best possible outcome. Each treatment plan is tailored to the patient’s individual needs and will include not only your care at Cleveland chiropractic, but home rehabilitation exercises and lifestyle modifications needed to get you back on track.

Getting out of pain is great. But how do we keep it away? The final step is building a strong and healthy body, lowering your injury risk and building confidence within our patients to get back to moving well and achieving their goals.
