Got Foot Pain & Plantar Fasciitis issues?
Foot and ankle pain can be an incredibly complex issue. One quarter of the bones found in the human body are in the foot and ankle - 26 to be exact. Not to mention 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, ligaments and tendons. The foot and ankle act as a foundation, shock absorber and propulsion engine.
Pain in this area can often be debilitating. It is commonly worsened by one of life’s simplest ADL’s, walking. Poor foot and/or lower limb mechanics often trigger excessive strain on structures in the foot and ankle leading to injury.
Osteopaths are trained to look at the body holistically and thus looking at all these other contributing areas is something that comes naturally to us. Treatment will aim to improve the function of not only the numerous joints in your foot and ankle but also addressing the other areas that may be increasing the strain on these areas. We believe that treating the problem AND it’s underlying cause is the best way to restore healthy joint function.
