Wobbly Ankles? Not With Chiropractic Care!
By Donna Stark
It’s one thing to be a little wobbly in the ankle if you are wearing six-inch stilettos for the first time, but it’s an entirely different story if you constantly have to catch yourself from falling while wearing your worn-in sneakers. Ankle instability is no joke and like most of us know, you don’t need to be an elite athlete or daredevil to end up on the couch with one that is swollen and bruised. If you like to people-watch like I do, all it takes is an afternoon at the local mall before you see someone’s ankle simply give out as they walk past … or maybe you’ve even been that person! But short of wearing braces or high-top sneakers every day, what can you do to prevent that from happening?
Chiropractic Care for Ankle Instability
Would you be surprised if I told you that when the ankle does not function as it should, your entire body could be affected? The muscles in your legs and feet can become sore or painful, your body may adopt an uneven gait which can lead to hip and back pain, or you can end up being less mobile and physically active, which will affect your body in more ways than you can count. Ever line up dominoes? Well, ankle instability is like the first one that starts the rest of them to fall.
