Chi­ro­prac­tic treat­ment is effec­tive in the treat­ment of joint pain includ­ing foot and ankle com­plaints. Assess­ment of your gait (walk­ing pat­tern) will form a rou­tine part of your Chiropractor’s assess­ment. Included in that assess­ment, your Chi­ro­prac­tor will look for signs of fallen arches (hyper prona­tion) and other bio mechan­i­cal prob­lems that might be affect­ing other parts of your body, E.g. Back pain.

Where indi­cated foot and ankle com­plaints can be treated by your Chi­ro­prac­tor or a refer­ral to our Chi­ropodist & Podi­a­trist may be indi­cated. Some­times pre­scrip­tion insoles (orthotics) are required to assist in the man­age­ment of foot and ankle com­plaints and the effects this may have on other parts of the body. In other cases localised mus­cle and joint pain in the foot and ankle can be effec­tively treated with manip­u­la­tion or appro­pri­ate soft tis­sue treatments.

Dynamic Chiropractic’s work with ath­letes often requires a multi-​disciplinary approach to foot and ankle and lower limb aches and pains. So a refer­ral to an expe­ri­enced Phys­io­ther­a­pist, Podi­a­trist or Sports Physi­cian may be nec­es­sary to work in con­junc­tion with your Chi­ro­prac­tic treatment.
