Injuries and conditions affecting the ankle potentially result in significant pain and issues affecting balance, coordination, and possibility of complications, particularly without effective treatment. Discover the difference in your journey to wellness when you receive ankle rehabilitation treatment at Roy A. Logan Chiropractic Clinic in Austin.
Common Causes and Symptoms Of Ankle Pain And Injury
Your ankles are at risk of injury as you go about your daily life. Walking and twisting your ankle, poor posture, falls that result in injury, automobile accidents that cause injuries beyond the whiplash often associated with an auto accident are some examples of common causes of ankle injuries.
Another common cause of ankle pain and injury is because of sports injuries. Ankle sprains and Achilles tendonitis are two common sports-related injuries often treated by chiropractors.
The American Chiropractic Association reports that tendinopathy is another condition frequently seen by chiropractors. If you experience pain or discover that pain increases with load and decreases with rest, come to our Austin chiropractic clinic where Dr. Logan has the professional experience to determine if you have tendinopathy or another condition potentially causing your ankle pain.
Once we conduct a thorough history and examination, our chiropractor develops a treatment plan that addresses your needs, with the opportunity to help you heal as you receive pain management and ankle rehabilitation.
Different Types Of Ankle Pain
Ankle pain sometimes varies with the condition causing the pain, although some symptoms likely are the same from one person to another individual.
If you experienced an ankle injury due to an auto accident or sports injury, you possibly experience sharp pain, pain on moving, inability to move your foot in a certain position or swelling in the ankle. The pain potentially gets worse the more you try to bear weight or move the affected ankle.
It is common to have more than one type of pain with an ankle injury. If you experience dull, aching pain, there is a possibility of also experiencing a sharp or throbbing pain either intermittently or continuously.
If you have tarsal tunnel or certain other conditions, your pain possibly worsens without warning. Arthritis produces aching and stiffness in the ankle for many individuals.
