Common Causes Of Foot And Ankle Pain

Our feet take a lot, so if things are not working as they should, life can come to a standstill. The main causes include:
pain
A traumatic event, which can damage the bones and joints of the foot
pain
Wear and Tear - Just slowly asking more of the foot ankle than it can handle
pain
Posture and stress - as we slump, so the weight falls unevenly on the foot, straining the arches
pain
Sports injuries, exercise routines or just having too much fun! This includes Achilles Tendon trouble, tendonitis and Plantar Fasciitis, pain across the sole of the foot
pain
Wear and tear as you get older, leading to inflammation and compression of your joints, like with Bunions or Hammer toes.

Foot And Ankle Pain Explained In Plain English

Foot and Ankle Pain affects movement due to a combination of issues with your muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves.

Foot and Ankle pain ranges from an annoying niggle that comes and goes, to stronk pain that stops you walking.

Sometimes these problems resolve with time, rest or exercise. More often the problem doesn’t get better properly and feels stiff, painful or vulnerable so that you are afraid of getting back to normal activities. This is when a professional opinion and treatment is really helpful.

Untreated, these pains can go from short easy to fix problems, to long term and harder to fix problems. Nobody likes taking pain killers or contemplating surgery. It’s important to choose a treatment which is safe, effective and proven thousands of times over all over the world.

What Are The Major Causes Of Foot And Ankle Pain?

We've already dealt with some of the common causes such as trauma and posture. However, let’s dive in a little deeper to see which foot and ankle conditions Osteopathic care provides a safe non surgical solution for:

Achilles Tendonitis

This gives pain at the back of the ankle, typically worse for walking, especially uphill. Fraying and tearing of the tendon leads to swelling and pain. In extreme cases the tendon can break.

Bunions

The big toe turns in and gets very sore at the joint where it meets your foot. This is nearly always related to back and hip issues.

Plantar Fasciitis

A layer passes across the sole of your foot from front to back. If this gets overloaded from posture etc, it can become very very sore and even lead to painful bony spikes where the fascia meets the heel.

Sprained Ankle

This is where you turn over your ankle, damaging the ligaments of the ankle. It tends to happen repeatedly, as the ligaments get more damaged and offer less support.

Excess Weight

Our bodies are designed to carry our weight as nature intended. This is just common sense, but not so easy to fix!

How Does An Osteopath Treat Foot And Ankle Pain?

An Osteopath will only use their hands and brain to skilfully and logically assess your symptoms. We train for many years to feel what is normal and what is in trouble, and Osteopathy is a fantastic method for getting your body back in tip-top shape again.

We don’t use machines or ask you to do endless exercises that you find difficult and don’t help. We just get your body working properly by aligning and relaxing everything, and getting the parts talking to each other. Treatment is typically very gentle and relaxing. Healing comes naturally without drugs or surgery. With foot trouble we will work on the foot but also on your back, hips and knees to make sure everything is working properly.

This means you can be well in a truly natural way, by in the end the miracle of your body healing itself.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the root cause of your problems, frequently people find that related issues that are connected also show drastic improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected.

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

We went to see Katherine for our 4 month baby who was very agitated during the nights. Katherine was very thorough in her investigation, explaining in details what she was doing. She was extremely kind and gentle with our baby. The sessions tremendously improved our boy's sleep. Plus she's super friendly so it's always nice as parents to go and see her! We cannot recommend her enough, thanks Katherine!

I’ve been seeing Constantino (Tino) for my treatment, he’s helped me very much. He’s very good & professional at what he does. I previously had a lot of problems with my neck, stiffness and pain, which was affecting my daily life. After a few sessions the pain has gone away. I’m able to do the things I enjoy again. Tino is a very good Osteopath, the best around in my experience.

I had back pain in the latter stages of my pregnancy and Verena used a combination of osteo treatment and suggested exercises to realign my hips and loosen my back in order to alleviate the pain. I was impressed of her knowledge of all things pregnancy related and felt in very safe, capable hands. Highly recommend.

I have been seeing Verena for about a month now and I am very happy with both the service and results, my only regret is i wish i had came to see her sooner!I feel every session is always informative, detailed and the treatment is always in depth. It has really speeded up my sports injury so that i can get back to it.I will be continuing to visit frequently for a general MOT and could not recommend the clinic and Verana enough.

I visited Verena for my back pain, tension, neck pain in my body due to having a new baby who had a feeding and sleeping problem. Her amazing hands released the pain and tension in my body just after 2 sessions, she also recommend some exercise for me to do at home, that exercise really helps my body. Thanks a lot Verena, looking forward to my session tomorrow.

We visited Verena for our 4 month baby sleep problem and tongue tie. After the first session, our baby relaxed a lot and had a great sleep for the next couple of days. Verena’s magical hands have released all the tension from our baby and our baby is much happier when breastfeeding. Looking forward to our 3rd session tomorrow morning. It really changed our life in a better way, thanks a lot, and highly recommended.

Went to see Giulia with a terrible back, shoulder and neck pain. She sorted me out and other long term issues. I’m painless, taller and straighter! Really happy I met her.

Melinda has been amazing! She’s really helped me to recover postpartum and I wish I visited her during my pregnancy. I had quite a few complicated issues due to my pregnancy and she really helped me to feel like myself again. My postpartum recovery wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you so much with your magic touch!

Excellent service and very professional. I was in a lot of back pain and Tino fixed it after just the first appointment! He also recommended some great exercises to prevent it happening again - I would highly recommend.
