Don't 'Stand' the Pain, Go See Your Chiropractor Now!

By Stephen R. Farris

If you work and are in a position in which you have to constantly be on your feet all day, then chances are somewhere down the line you're going to develop knee, foot, and/or ankle pain. It can't be helped, in a manner of speaking. Even the best shoe on the market doesn't always stop you from getting pain in those areas.

Don't get me wrong, certain shoe brands and orthopedic inserts can help reduce your chances of developing knee, foot, and ankle pain. Personally, I have flat feet and I've tried just about everything on the market. Some help better than others, but since I live on a budget it's not easy to go out and buy another pair of shoes or insert when they wear out. So sometimes I end up suffering with more pain than I should.

Knee, foot, and ankle pain can also be caused from standing long periods of time on hard surfaces, such as concrete or asphalt. Uneven surfaces can have a painful effect on those areas as well.

When pain hits in these areas, we tend to overcompensate by shifting our weight away from the pain. When we do this, it could lead to misalignment in the spine, thus causing pain in the lower back area as well as the knee, foot, and ankle.

So when suffering pain in these areas, and instead of trying to treat it with prescription drugs and/or over-the-counter medication (OTCs), why not visit your local chiropractor to treat your pain naturally.

Doctors of chiropractic use an all-natural, non-invasive, and non-addictive hands-on approach to pain relief, by adjusting the spine to reduce joint restrictions and ensure proper alignment, which also helps the nervous system function properly. 

Some of the benefits a client can receive when visiting their local chiropractor and getting treated for their knee, foot, and ankle pain are listed below.

  • Reduced pain and discomfort
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Increase in range of motion
  • Increased flexibility
  • An increase in muscle tone and strength

Another thing with knee, foot, and ankle pain, is there's a chance that the muscles supporting the joints could become weak due to overcompensating and alignment issues. So do yourself a favor. When you start to feel pain in these areas, visit your local chiropractor such as the ones found at The Joint Chiropractic.
