We’ve all been there before, ankle and foot pain. We might have taken a misstep, rolled an ankle, or even had person to person collision. These small but mighty parts of our body take a lot of impacts and when hurt, can put us out from major activities to even our own daily routine. It’s a good thing our San Francisco chiropractors know a thing or two about soft tissue treatment and healing.
What Causes Ankle and Foot Pain?
You can suspect the obvious causes of ankle and foot pain but what else do you about these causes?
- Swelling – Swollen ankles and feet can reveal more about the condition of your pain. While swelling that goes away doesn’t commonly cause for concern however persistent swelling could further indicate a deeper rooted health problem.
- Medication Side Effect – You may tilt your head at this one but it is one to note. There are drugs out there that can cause ankle and feet swelling as one of its side effects. At SFCC we promote holistic healing and encourage you to come see us prior to using medication to treat your pain. We also advise using chiropractic care as an alternative to opiates.
- Injury – This might be an obvious one to you but it is a crucial one. From sports injuries, to car accidents, to a fall at home, untreated injuries are one of the MOST common reasons why symptoms persist and long-term issues are developed. Don’t put off treating your ankle or foot injury to prevent pain later down the road.
