and Ankle Pain
There are 26 bones in each foot and many more muscles and
tendons! So it is not surprising to know that there are
many types of foot and ankle pain. Some may be quite specific,
such as heel pain or pain in the ball of the foot, pain
can be general aches and can get worse at night.
Footwear while often at fault is often wrongly blamed for
foot pain, however the design of the shoe can be the cause
of a foot pain.
It may be that at least 75% of foot and ankle pain is
due to a misalignment of the bones within the foot.
Because things are not where they are supposed to be some
parts of the foot may be working too hard which can cause
fatigue and pain.
Your podiatrist will discuss all treatments with you at
the consultation and provide an effective course of treatment.
Misalignments such as flat feet and very high arches may
be helped with shoe inserts called Orthotics. Orthotics
are designed to return the bones within the foot to as close
as possible the ‘neutral’ position.
Manipulation techniques such as physiotherapy or chiropractic
therapy may also help.
