What is the benefit of orthopedic, physiotherapy, and massage treatment for foot and ankle pain?
You can either be suffering from an underlying condition, chronic or acute injury in your foot and ankle. At Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic, our orthopedist or physiotherapist will conduct an intense medical assessment to determine what is causing the pain. After that, we will plan a personalized therapy session that will relieve the pain in your foot or ankle.
Your treatment plan will be designed to ensure quick pain relief and treatment of other arising symptoms by applying therapeutic best practices like acupuncture, specific movement, manual techniques, and advice relating to your pain.
After completing the treatment, your recovery is highly important. Therefore, your orthopedist or physiotherapist will create an elaborate plan that will help strengthen the muscles and the bone at your foot, gradual use of the feet for your daily activity, and addition of further proprioception exercises so as to live a comfortable life.
Common causes of foot and ankle pain
Different factors usually cause pain. Foot and ankle pain can occur due to underlying conditions or acute and chronic injury. Some of these common causes include;
Fallen arches occur when several tendons at the foot do not pull together to form a perfect arch. It is also referred to as a flat foot or fallen arch. Previously, we thought that a flat foot was a significant cause of pain and discomfort. But over time, we discovered that most athletes and runners have flat feet, which do not affect them. If you have pain in this area, we recommend checking out improper loading strategies as a solution.
Bursitis occurs when the tendons rub against anti-friction sacs or “bursae,” it brings discomfort and sometimes irritates you.
Sprains and Strains
When the muscle or tendon is stretched beyond its limit, it causes strain. While a sprain happens when a ligament is torn or extended beyond its limit.
Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of a thick band of connective tissue around the bottom of your foot. It is mainly caused by constant standing, being overweight, and wearing footwear without inadequate support.
Tendinitis occurs when the tendons are frequently overloaded, causing the tendons to become hypersensitive and inflamed. It is also referred to as tendinopathy.
Arthritis is also called joint inflammation. Arthritis is an inflammatory or degenerative condition of one or more joints. It is associated with joint pain and stiffness. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the most occurring form of arthritis, which causes cartilage and disease to the foot joints.
Tarsal tunnel syndrome
Tarsal tunnel syndrome occurs when a compression at the posterior tibial nerve (tarsal tunnel) causes inflammation along the nerves that run through the ankle and foot.
Fractures occur when the bone comes in contact with an excessive force. The bone will have cracks or breaks. Fractures at the foot or ankle usually require weeks of treatments so as to heal properly.
Lower back problem
Roughly 30% of foot and ankle pain is caused as a result of lower back problems. It can either occur alone or together with a few extremity symptoms.
Why is foot or ankle pain a threat to your comfort?
Foot and ankle are complex mechanical structures that aid movement. The foot is more complex than the ankle, and consists of approximately 24 bones, 30 joints, and over 100 musculoskeletal systems. The ankle joint comprises 3 bones that work together with other surrounding connective tissues that keep the joint in its exact position. When the foot and ankle function together, they attain an optimal level. Due to the complex structure of the foot and ankle, pain in this part of the body can be unpleasant.
These injuries can cause severe pain and discomfort, making you reduce the weight down on your injured foot. In most cases, you are left with just two options; finding it hard to go about your daily routine or hopping around while prone to injury with your other foot. A small degree of pain can affect your everyday life much more than you expect.
