What caused your Foot and Ankle Pain and How to get rid of them?

Foot and ankle pain or injures is one of the more common injuries seen in athletes as well as non-athletes. To recover, you need an accurate diagnosis, focused therapy, and customized rehabilitative programs that address and repair the damage without injections or surgery. Ankle surgery or sue of steroids (injectable steroids) isn't as good as you may have heard.  Surgery for the foot or ankle should is for compound fractures, and fractures that are too complicated to heal naturally. However, steroidal injections of the ankles and feet are more harmful. Steroids will cause your joint cartilage and soft tissues to degenerate at an exceedingly fast pace.

Injuries of the Ankle and Feet are the result of ankle instabilities

Ankle ligament injury is prevalent in sports activities such as basketball, football, ballet, and dancing. The majority of ankle ligament injuries are due to sudden flexion and an inward rolling of the foot. This mechanism of injury usually causes damages to the lateral ligamentous and muscular structures. Inversion injury of the ankle tends to recur due to weakened ligaments, and this can cause chronic ankle instability.

What causes Ankle Instabilities and how to treat them without injections or surgery in Malaysia?

The two leading causes of ankle instability:
  • Mechanical instability: Repeated injury to the ankle can cause structural loss of the supporting ankle ligaments
  • Functional weakness or instability: Loss of neuromuscular control, such as impaired balancing ability and decreased proprioception (joint position sense). The athlete may have difficulty balancing on the injured foot.
Treatments for chronic ankle instability

1. Functional rehabilitation exercises:
  • Muscle strengthening and neuromuscular control enhancement
  • Improvement of joint position sense (proprioception training that uses uneven surfaces such as wobble board or rocker board)
  • Improvement of balancing ability (athletes should be able to perform heel-to-toe walk or one-leg stance with eyes opened or closed)
  • Improvement of posture control ability (strengthening of the peroneal muscle is important as the muscle acts as a lateral dynamic stabilization structure of the ankle)
  • Get combined care from a corrective chiropractor and clinical physiotherapists. 
2. Taping or bracing application for dynamic stabilizer facilitation, proprioception improvement, or joint support.

3. Ankle-foot orthotics to improve static balance ability (standing and simple linear walking) and posture control ability.
