Treating Ankle Pain and Injuries
To properly treat ankle pain and injuries, it’s important to understand how the ankle functions. There are three specific joints that run through the ankle. These joints are responsible for allowing you to flex your ankle between your shin and your foot. Although the ligaments and joints that support your ankle can absorb most of the impact of your movements, your ankle becomes vulnerable when you point your foot, as most people do when trying to prepare for some impact (e.g. slip and fall accidents, car accidents).
Once you have sprained or injured your ankle, the chances of you experiencing another injury increase significantly making it that much more necessary to receive complete and comprehensive Chiropractic Treatment as soon as you are hurt.
Most primary care physicians will provide some kind of pain killer or prescription medication to address ankle injuries, as well as telling you to avoid applying pressure on the affected area for some time. It’s important to understand that, although you may not feel pain, it does not mean that your injury or condition is corrected. To avoid further injury or a chronic long-term injury chiropractic care may be necessary.
