The feet are complex structures which function to provide protection and support to the body in relation to the spine and head posture. The feet are essential towards balancing the body’s entire weight, allowing it to walk, run, stand, and, jump. Consequently, foot complications may cause severe issues throughout the spine, hips, knees, and ankles if left untreated.
Individuals who’ve suffered a prior injury or condition may often continue experiencing pain and other symptoms on the surrounding structures of the foot. Bone fractures on the outside end of the ankle can occasionally occur but more often, the ligaments around the anterior and side of the ankle can tear and produce pain as well as visible swelling and bruising on the affected region. Generally, it can take 4-6 weeks to recover from a direct injury but, the ligaments can become full of scar tissue, which is non-elastic and stiff. This can increase the chance of damage or injury, often leading to further sprains. Repeated traumas can influence the mobility of the ankle and cause complications on the joint and other structures, such as the knee and spine.
Chiropractic care can be effective for treating injuries or conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and ankle sprains, among others. Foot health is essential towards establishing the body’s proper support and balance, together with a proper spinal posture. In the presence of foot complications, chiropractic treatment can be used to achieve long lasting health.
Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:
In the presence of foot complications resulting in pain and other symptoms, an individual’s gait, or manner of walking, can become altered, placing considerable stress and pressure on the spine, pelvis, hips, and knees. The body has the ability to compensate with posture modifications but this can often lead to limited mobility and further complications in other structures.
