WHAT ARE THE TOP ATHLETIC CAUSES OF FOOT AND ANKLE PAIN?
In our clinic we have treated foot and ankle issues on a daily basis for over 16 years. The number one cause we see is poor movement of the foot as it relates to running.
Many people have poor running form and it causes overuse injuries to the bottom of the foot, the ankle and the lower leg. Eventually the pain reaches the kneews and the lumbar spine.
Proper foot movement needs to be reviewed by a knowledgable professional with experience in not only proper running form, but also with access to doctors with clinical experience correcting the issue.
Flat feet, plantar faciitis, shin splints, chronic ankle sprains, knocked kneed, and low back pain are all issues resulting from improper running form.
In our office we use a camera application to review running form and other technologies to measure movement of the spine to properly diagnose and treat foot and ankle pain. We also have the very best Sports Performance Coaches to aid in correcting any problem.
