Chiropractic Care in Bakersfield for Ankle Pain
Dr. James Garrett
We Help Ankle Pain
Ankles are extremely durable to carry the weight of the body and are made up of a complex structure of bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
Ankles carry the brunt of the body’s weight as well as the motion it puts into place. While the foot is stationary or is slowed by the contact with the ground, the ankle is intrinsically designed to carry and absorb the majority of the energy and motion the body makes, therefore making injuries to the ankle region very common.
Some of the most common injuries to the ankle which cause pain include: tendinitis, fracture, dislocation, broken ankle, arthritis, tendon rupture, sprains, and strains.
While some ankle injuries can be treated at home with rest, ice, compression bandages and elevation, there are times when it is wise to seek medical attention and the expertise of a chiropractor.
If you are unable to bear weight on your foot or if swelling does not reduce on its own after 2-3 days of treating it at home, it is best to have it examined by us.
