Ankle & Foot Pain


Ankle and foot pain can have very negative consequences for your daily life as running, walking and even weight-bearing can become difficult. These problems, if not addressed have the potential to become chronic in nature. In addition to this, you may begin to experience pain elsewhere, as the body compensates for the foot and ankle problems.


Foot and ankle pain are common among many people who engage in certain sports and leisure activities, as well as those who spend a lot of time on their feet.

Causes of foot and ankle pain:

  • Sporting injuries
  • Poor knee/hip alignment
  • Poor posture/spinal alignment
  • Poor footwear (high heels, stiff work boots)
  • Poor running technique
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Trauma
  • Fractures
  • Underlying disease or pathology (rare)

What are the most common causes of foot & ankle pain?

Once the chiropractor has ruled out fracture or pathology, the most common causes of foot and ankle pain are mechanical in nature, such as poor alignment and compensation for problems elsewhere in the body.
