Foot And Ankle Pain

Our Osteopaths are highly trained in treating patients with ankle and foot injuries. During treatment, we focus on treating the root cause of your pain. Therefore, we will rarely only focus on your ankle and foot; we will examine your entire spine, including the knee and pelvis, where we may often find additional structures contributing to your ankle and foot injury. Along with osteopathic treatment, we also address other predisposing factors, such as flat feet and muscle imbalances.

Osteopathy For Ankle and Foot Pain

Once we have diagnosed that your pain is coming from various structures in your ankle or foot, we will compile a comprehensive treatment plan tailored specifically to each patient. Treatment plans centre around osteopathic treatment using highly skilled techniques to ease your ankle and foot pain, restore movement, and relieve aches and pains. We also focus on more long-term rehabilitation techniques to improve mobility and strength to return the patient to everyday activities.

Ankle and Foot Conditions Suitable for Osteopathic Treatment

  • Sprained Ankles
  • Achilles tendonitis/strain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Pain on sole of foot and ankle joint pain

Who Do We Treat?

We treat patients of all ages with ankle and foot pain – children, adults, pregnant ladies, the elderly, and sports professionals. Treatment plans and techniques are tailored specifically to the patient.

Please note that we assess each patient on an individual basis, and only after a thorough assessment will we decide together on whether osteopathic treatment is suitable for you and your presenting condition.
