Knee, Ankle, or Foot Pain, Your Chiropractor Can Help
By Stephen R. Farris
Whether you work at a desk job, on your feet at work, doing chores around the house, playing sports, or exercising, at some point or other you're going to feel pain in your knees, ankles, or feet.
The pain in those areas could be from the type of shoes you wear that don't provide the cushioning or proper width. Improper footwear (worn over a length of time) could end up causing knee, ankle, or foot pain.
Walking on hard surfaces all the time could also contribute to pains in those areas as well. Especially if you're working or playing on concrete surfaces that don't provide any give.
As we grow older, the chances of developing some type of leg pain increases. We might find ourselves faced with swelling around the joints and this could eventually put us at risk of developing osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.
Injury on the job, or from exercising and playing sports can also cause pain. Sometimes for extended periods.
Last, but not least, the knee, ankle, or foot pain could be caused by lower back problems, in which it might be time to consult your local chiropractor to find out if an adjustment could help ease, or eventually eliminate the pain.
Chiropractic treatment is an all-natural, noninvasive, non-addictive form to treating pain, especially in your back, neck, and joints, as well as other parts of the body, such as knees, ankles, and feet.
The benefits of chiropractic treatment consists of, but aren't limited to the following:
- Relief from joint discomfort
- Relief from chronic injuries
- Improved joint function and coordination
- Improved physical function and performance
These are just a few of the health benefits you can receive from chiropractic treatment. Upon your first visit, he/she will sit down and do a consultation to find out where you're feeling pain the most. Afterwards, they may talk to you about treatment options and for how long you might need them. The key to getting back to form again is to nip the pain in the bud as soon as possible, before it leads to other health problems.
