General Treatment of Ankle and Foot Pain

November 18, 2014

First, a thorough examination will determine the cause of the pain. Common treatments for foot pain and ankle pain include cold laser, ultrasound, manipulation and customized exercises and stretches.

Because pain may originate with pressure on spinal nerves, the lower leg and ankle muscles can weaken. This may change your gait, increase pain or even lead to arthritis.

An ankle sprain typically means the ligaments are stretched or torn. Even if the pain is stopped, the ligaments remain weakened and repeat injuries are common.

Release therapy targets the calf muscles and a splint or bandage may be used to stabilize the ankle joint. We need to get the bones back to their normal position to make sure future injuries don’t occur.
