Physical therapy and foot/ankle pain
If you are suffering from acute pain or chronic pain, revibe can help in curing you by every possible means. Our medical practitioners and physiotherapists would examine and find out the exact cause of the pain. It would follow with a series of exercises, stretches, and manual therapy sessions. Physiotherapy helps in improving the flexibility and the strength of the muscles.
The treatment may also include the use of a balance board, which may help in improving blood circulation. Other specialized methods may be adopted, too, depending on the condition of the patient.
Why did my foot or ankle pain occur?
The feet and ankle are very complex structures. The Arthritis Foundation has claimed that the ankle is made of three bones, which need to interact with each other optimally to regulate the proper functioning. Also, the foot is made up of more than two dozen bones, 30 joints, and hundreds of muscles, ligaments, and tendons joined together. Both of these are weight-bearing portions of the body, and pain in them won’t allow one to move.
Common causes of foot and ankle pain
The pain in the foot and ankles is caused by acute injuries; other causes include several conditions that may develop over time. According to the Mayo Clinic, there are several common causes, including:
It is a condition when the tendons in the foot do not perform optimally and fail to form the arch, resulting in ‘fallen arch’ or ‘flat foot’.
Arthritis is the condition that involves the inflammation of the joints. Arthritis has types; Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis.
Tarsal tunnel syndrome is caused when the nerve running from ankle to foot is inflamed or damaged.
It is a condition in which the connective tissues present at the base of the foot are damaged. It is commonly caused by the overuse of the muscles, by standing for a long time or wearing improper footwear.
It is a condition in which the tendons are rubbed against the ‘bursae,’ which causes an uncomfortable feeling.
A fracture is caused when excessive pressure is applied to the bone, causing it to crack or break entirely. This may take weeks to cure a fractured ankle.
A muscle, when stretched beyond limits, is called a strained muscle, and when a ligament is stretched, it is called a sprain.
