What are the causes?
There are many causes of pain associated with the ankles, feet and toes.
- Long term dysfunction of joints and muscle groups
- improper bony alignment (subluxation)
It is important to get diagnosed properly to make sure the region is not fractured or dislocated, these would be types of injuries that would not warrant chiropractic care until sufficient bone healing has occurred.
How can Chiropractic help?
Evaluating the anatomy of the foot, ankle, and toes with specific tests, as well as a detailed history are important in order to obtain a proper diagnosis. Depending on what specifically is wrong with the extremity, treatment ranges from foot, ankle and toe adjustments to soft tissue/physio-therapy modalities targeted to treat the origin of pain. Chiropractic is known to be extremely effective in problems arising from the feet, ankles and toes.
