Foot & Ankle

Have a question that's not listed here? Please let us know.

Did you know that there are 26 bones and 33 joints found in each foot?

That means that about 1/4th of the bones in your body are found from your ankles down. Your feet are also the part of your body that is furthest from your brain. This means that proper movement and alignment in your foot is essential for it to stay healthy. When joints in your foot are stuck or misaligned, it can lead to pain, discomfort, as well as other symptoms. It's also important to note that foot issues drastically affect your gait, the way that you move, and even your balance Foot issues often create compensations all the way up your body which can lead to all kinds of different symptoms. What we do is examine your foot to see what bones are misaligned or not moving correctly. When we see what the problem is, we simply adjust it back into proper alignment. Foot adjustments normally involve us pulling or pushing on different areas of your foot with our hands. In fact, many of our patients come to our office specifically for foot adjustments because they are unable to get relief through other means. So if you've been battling with a foot issue and you've tried everything else to help it with no luck then be sure to schedule your first visit with us today so we can take a look at it and see if we can help you out!

  • Yes, chiropractors help with foot pain. Chiropractors are trained to adjust every joint in the body, which includes the feet. In fact, the feet are made up of 26 bones (more than the spine) and 32 joints that all need to be moving correctly in order to avoid foot pain. When joints in the foot are not moving correctly or misaligned, it can create inflammation, swelling, degeneration, arthritis, spurring, and pain. However, when proper alignment is restored in the foot many of the symptoms above start to go away. So if you've been experiencing foot pain and don't know what to do about it, be sure to schedule here so we can start the healing process.
  • There are many ways a chiropractor can adjust ankles. Most often ankle adjustments are done manually by hand. Sometimes chiropractors will use different tools to assist with the adjustments as well depending on what your ankle needs. Some of these adjustments will involve a pull or push in a certain direction while others will consist of a gentler approach. At the end of the day, we must make sure that all the joints in your feet and ankle are correctly aligned to make sure that everything is moving correctly. When all the joints are properly aligned and moving correctly, many of the symptoms you are experiencing will start to heal and go away. So if you're ready to have your ankle checked out, then be sure to schedule your first appointment here
  • Chiropractors can help you with your sprained ankle. Making sure that the ankle is stable and in the correct position is vital to how the sprained ligament will heal. This is done by correcting the alignment of the foot and ankle joints so that they heal correctly. Not to mention, chiropractic adjustments to the ankle can help speed up recovery time. Most importantly, if your ankle heals in a misaligned position, then you will be more prone to injuring your ankle again in the future. Chiropractic adjustments to your ankle are vital for ensuring your ankle heals correctly to help prevent more ankle injuries in the future. If you have an ankle sprain or have had an ankle sprain in the past, then be sure to schedule your appointment here
  • Yes, chiropractic is well known for helping with plantar fasciitis. The name "plantar fasciitis" broken down means "inflammation" of the "plantar fascia" which basically means irritation and pain at the bottom of your foot. A common way plantar fasciitis develops is when the joints of the foot or ankle are misaligned or compressed. This will create compensations at other areas of the foot and ankle causing muscles to misbehave. When muscles of the foot are misbehaving and the joints aren't moving correctly, the result is often inflammation and pain at the plantar fascia. Chiropractic helps these joints behave correctly which means inflammation starts to decrease and many of the plantar fascia pain starts to go away. Chiropractic is one of the best places to start when it comes to healing plantar fasciitis because it is the least invasive. Surgery should always be a last resort because it is permanent. So if you're tired of dealing with your plantar fasciitis and want it to stop ruining aspects of your life, then be sure to schedule here so we can start working on it!
  • In the early stage of a bunion, chiropractic care can help prevent any further formation. Bunions in the foot are often formed due to misalignments in the toe region. These misalignments cause the big toe to pull inwards which causes the base of the big toe to stick out. Many times this is due to tight shoes, trauma to the foot that didn't heal correctly and inflammation. Chiropractic corrects misalignments in the foot to allow the joints to move correctly. When the joints in the foot are moving correctly, many of the symptoms start to go away. Chiropractors have great success with helping bunions so if you want help with your bunion then be sure to schedule here
  • Chiropractors can help with heel spurs to a certain extent. A heel spur is basically a bony growth that develops around your heel bone. Heel spurs often form due to improper movements with your foot or improper weight distribution within your foot from misaligned joints. Chiropractic cannot make a heel spur go away but chiropractic can correct the misalignments in your foot that can be the main cause of the formation of your bone spur. This will help prevent it from getting worse and to help minimize your symptoms. So if you have a heel spur and are looking to minimize the symptoms, then be sure to schedule here
  • Yes, chiropractic can help with foot pronation. Foot pronation is a natural movement of the food. However, if your foot/ankle is constantly sinking inward when you stand, walk, jump, etc then you most likely have a foot pronation issue. Depending on the severity of your chronic foot pronation, this can lead to ankle injuries such as sprains and strains. Once you suffer from one sprain ankle, it is easier to sustain more sprain ankles in the future. Chiropractic helps to realign the joints of the ankle and foot to correct how the foot and ankle moves and help prevent consistent foot pronation. Then there are multiple exercises and stretches for foot pronation to help keep your foot and ankle in alignment. When your foot and ankle are in proper alignment and moving correctly, you are a lot less likely to suffer from ankle sprains and ankle strains. So if you notice that your ankles drop inward while standing or moving, then be sure to schedule your first appointment here
  • Chiropractic can help foot tendonitis. The word tendonitis means inflammation of the tendon. This can be any tendon in the body. When muscles of the leg, ankle, or foot are not working properly (oftentime overworked) then inflammation can occur at the tendon. The tendon is what attaches muscle to bone. Chiropractic corrects the alignment of joints in your foot, ankle, and leg to allow your muscles to start working correctly again. The inflammation in your tendon starts to go down when your muscle starts working correctly allowing the pain from your tendonitis to decrease. So if you've been struggling with tendonitis in your foot then be sure to schedule your first appointment here
