Osteopathy – Ankle and Foot Pain

.

Ankle Sprain

An ankle sprain involves damage to the ankle ligaments, typically sustained during a simple sudden traumatic incident, such as rolling or twisting the ankle.1 There are various predisposing factors that may have caused the injury in the first place. These may include poor foot/ankle mechanics, poor footwear, joint restrictions and muscle tightness in the lumbo-pelvic region/or lower limb and leg length discrepancy which may be overloading one ankle.1

.

Heel/Arch Pain

Painful feet can be very debilitating. Pain in the heel area is common and may be associated with a heel (calcaneal) spur.1 We use our feet all the time and this fascia causes constant tugging on the attachment point into the bone and inflammation and pain may develop at this site.1 This painful condition is known as plantarfasciitis.1

.

Tendonitis

Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon and usually occurs due to overuse.1 Tendons are bands of strong connective tissues that attach muscle to bone.1 A common area of tendonitis is the heel (Achilles tendon).1
