Foot and ankle pain

Foot & Ankle Pain

Your feet are the foundations of your body. When there is a problem with your feet, it can directly affect the way you stand, walk or run and in turn, this may have a further impact on other areas of your body. By improving the alignment of your feet, we can work towards better overall posture.

Chiropractors have a comprehensive knowledge of foot and ankle biomechanics and can effectively deal with foot and ankle injuries. We look to address the underlying cause of the injury to prevent recurrent or chronic injuries.

Our practitioners are experts in navigating the many similar but different ankle and foot complaints. These are some of the more common conditions:

Planter fasciitis (Sole of foot)
Sever’s disease (Heel)
Excessive pronation (Loss of foot arch)
Metatarsalgia (Ball of foot)
Morton’s neuroma (3rd and 4th toes)
Traction apophysitis (Achilles tendon)
Osgood Schlatter’s disease (Knee)

Following assessment and scans (if necessary), your practitioner will provide a personalised treatment plan to suit your needs.

At Oak Park Family Chiropractic, we also recommend Foot Levelers orthotics for some patients. Foot Levelers is the world’s leading provider of individually designed custom-made foot orthotics. We utilise a 3D digital foot scanner to analyse all three arches of your feet. These are suitable for anyone at any level of exercise, occupation or shoe type.
