What are the signs that I should see a chiropractor?
Although you may have recovered from the pain of an accident, twisting your ankle or worse can cause irreparable damage that may cause stress or pain to the rest of your body. Many ankle issues are due to rolling it, whether that happens walking on flat ground or playing sports. Wearing your favorite heels and misjudging the distance off of a curb can become a much bigger problem 4 to 6 weeks down the road.
If you’ve suffered from any minor injuries that are now resurfacing or manifesting as severe pain, chiropractic treatment for your ankle pain may be the answer. Depending on what the initial visit educated the doctor about your condition, re-stabilizing the foot and ankle, especially since it is the main postural foundation for your entire body, may be the route to go.
While home remedies suggest the use of orthotics to help your feet maintain their structural and functional balance as you stand, walk or run, this doesn’t always help the way adjustments from your Mesa chiropractor can.
A chiropractor will align the bones in your foot, stabilize the muscles and ligaments surrounding the ankle and physically move the bones in your feet so that you can stand, walk and run on even footing.
