Foot & Ankle Pain Treatment in Plymouth
Often, pain in the foot is not coming from the foot at all! The low back can refer pain into the foot along the large nerves in the leg. This is often associated with pins and needles or numbness.
Problems within the foot can cause a multitude of problems from the knees to the spine. Because the foot is the “base” on which we stand and walk, it can cause major compensations higher up when things go wrong.
Sometimes Orthotics (insert or arch support) may be necessary to address the problems in the foot.
Sprained ankles have a tendency to recur as a ligament once damaged will be weak and prone to further injury.
All these injuries can respond well to Chiropractic care, but expect some hard work on your behalf with home exercises and rehabilitate measures.
