Foot Pain Treatment in Melbourne
Did you know there are 26 bones and more than 7000 nerve endings in each foot? It’s no surprise that, according to a recent Australasian Podiatry Council survey, 89% of Australians have experienced foot pain.
Consider the fact that our feet carry the brunt of our whole bodyweight against the floor with every step we take. This can take its toll on our feet’s bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments over time. Foot problems can be exacerbated when we wear poorly fitted shoes or have underlying health issues like diabetes.
Pain in the foot and/or ankle isn’t always preventable, however chiropractic treatment can help to alleviate the symptoms and aid a faster recovery. Chronic lateral ankle pain treatment might involve Chiropractic manipulation, soft tissue therapy, as well as informed advice on targeted exercise programs and appropriate footwear.
