Osteopathic treatment for Ankle Pain

The ankle is a very complex joint made up of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons which are important in activities involving standing, walking and running.

Having strong ankles helps to prevent injury and can speed up recovery from ankle problems such as sprains, strains, and fractures which can result in symptoms such as:   

Ankle swelling    Numbness or tingling    Instability    Stiffness

In my experience recurring ankle problems are due to returning to normal activity too soon or poor rehabilitation exercises.

I climbed a mountain and survived! I have experienced a lot more strength in my ankles as well as flexibility, resulting in less “stumbles” on my ankles. My treatment has meant that I am more comfortable and confident with long walks and I have set myself new goals that I wouldn’t have set myself before.
