How can an osteopath help with foot and ankle pain?
Depending on the diagnosis and your age and fitness we can use a variety of gentle massage and manipulative techniques to increase the mobility of the joints and the flexibility of the muscles in the foot.
We will often look at muscles and joints in the lower limb, the knee, hip and lower back and may treat any joint restrictions and muscle tightness we find there. Often improving the movement in the joints of the lower will help the foot and ankle function better.
We may offer specific balancing, strengthening or loosening exercises
We may offer advice on strapping and brace supports, footwear and any lifestyle factors that might be hindering healing.
We may refer you to our Podiatristfor his opinion and specialist foot supports.
X-rays, scans or other tests may be required to make a diagnosis and we may refer you to your GP for any additional investigations and treatment such as advice on pain killers and anti-inflammatory medications.
