Foot and Ankle Sprains/Strains
It is normal to feel sore after an athletic event, but sometimes you may notice that the pain feels too intense. In other cases, our patients have been walking through midtown or Rockefeller Center when they step on the ground in a way that feels painful. A sprain or strain could be the cause of your discomfort, and it may even prevent you from participating in your favorite activities. Our chiropractors at Rockefeller Health & Medical manage a variety of foot and ankle conditions, including sprains and strains. If you are interested in finding treatment in the 10036 zip code, our NYC clinic can provide the relief you need.
Causes of Sprains and Strains
If your ankle or foot is suddenly hurting, it could be the result of several different conditions. For one, you may feel pain caused by plantar fasciitis, which is often confused with a sprained ankle. There are many other types of pain that you might experience, but sprains and strains are more common than you might think.
Sprains are caused by ligament injuries, whereas strains are caused by muscle and tendon injuries. Often, the injuries are caused by force, overuse, or overstretching. Whether you were trying to take public transportation from west NYC to east NYC and stepped incorrectly off the platform or you simply overused your ligaments while walking through Manhattan, treatment options are available.
Chiropractic Care Can Relieve Sprains and Strains
Our chiropractors can relieve some of the stress on your feet that exacerbates sprains and strains. We also relieve pain in the joints that are associated with your feet and ankles. The joints may shift out of alignment. Our chiropractors will put them back into their proper alignment, preventing the injury from recurring.
Massage can relieve sprains and strains caused by athletic injuries. This form of therapy brings more blood to the region, improving circulation so the body can heal more quickly. Chiropractic treatments can also prevent future sprains and strains. Physical therapy can help you avoid future injuries by helping you strengthen the muscles in those areas of the body.
