Ankle Pain Treatment
We all suffer from different types of pain throughout the day. Some of the most common pain is that associated with the extremities, such as hand pain and foot pain. Ankle pain is a common ailment that is can be debilitating. When you suffer from ankle pain, it can be very difficult to complete daily activities.
If you've been suffering from ankle pain, there are certain chiropractic care techniques that can help you find relief. Chiropractic care can help resolve your pain and can get to the root cause instead of simply mask the symptoms. At Wellness & Chiropractic Care in Brunswick, ME, our chiropractor is here to help you get the care you need for ankle pain with the help of the Graston technique.
What Causes Ankle Pain?
There are causes of ankle pain that might be related to your skeletal system or to your muscular system. If you've had a previous injury to your ankle, such as:
- A sports injury
- Achilles heel injury
- Muscle tear
- Muscle strain or sprain in your lower extremities
These can all lead to recurring ankle pain. This is especially true if you did not partake in sports rehabilitation, or if you did not get any chiropractic care to help alleviate your symptoms. Unfortunately, walking or playing sports on a sprained or injured ankle can increase the chances of ankle pain and lead to recurring pain.
Problems with the joints in your ankle, such as previous fractures or arthritis, can also cause ankle pain.
In addition, you might also feel ankle pain due to an uneven spine. If you have an uneven spine, this can lead to poor posture and balance, which can affect your lower extremities and your ankles. Ankle pain can also affect the entire body, causing you to constantly shift your weight and feel pain in your lower back.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Me?
Because there are so many causes for ankle pain, it's important to get help from a chiropractor who can determine the root cause of your pain. Our chiropractor can conduct a physical exam and chiropractic care such as:
- The Graston technique: This uses instruments to help identify scar tissue within the body that can lead to pain, such as ankle pain
- Chiropractic adjustments: This can help realign the joint or spine to help improve balance and mobility
- Muscle exercises: This helps improve strength and mobility around injured ankle muscles
