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
As osteopaths we are trained to diagnose and treat all the mechanical causes of foot and ankle problems whether they are due to short term sporting injuries, or longer term problems that can occur following a fracture or serious ankle sprain.
We can provide simple rehabilitation exercises to help restore full function to your ankle and we work with local physiotherapists and podiatrists who are happy to provide additional support if required.
