Heel & Ankle Pain
At our office we specialize in the Activator Methods technique which is fantastic for the evaluation and treatment of the spine but also every other joint in the body. Yes, that includes your ankles and feet!
This is one of the many ways in which we are different from most chiropractic offices. Although the low back can cause pain in your ankles and feet we have found that it is usually a structural combination of misalignments in the skeleton in the low back, kips, knees, ankles AND feet! And that is why it can be hard to find solutions for this common problem. Most doctors target one of those areas not all of them as a team. As the saying goes, you are as strong as your weakest link so a thorough evaluation of ALL the possible contributing factors is what is needed for lasting results.
Once all of the joints are aligned correctly we will evaluate your feet themselves to see if orthotics would be appropriate for you in an effort to maintain your alignment. Most people do not need orthotics once their skeleton has been aligned correctly but sometimes "training wheels" are appropriate.
Call our office now at 703-689-2300 to schedule an evaluation to determine if you qualify for Success through Chiropractic!
