What is Ankle Pain?

Ankle pain occurs in the joint that connects the foot to the leg. Depending on whether you have an injury or an illness that is the cause of the pain, the pain may be dull and throbbing or sharp. The pain may increase, especially when you try to move the ankle joint.

If there is nerve damage, the pain may include tingling and numbness, or the nerve damage may create a burning sensation. The pain may be localized, and you can feel it just in the ankle, or it may radiate to the foot or up the legs, or both.

If you have a sprained ankle, the swelling may increase the pain until the swelling goes down. After the swelling subsides, you must avoid injuring your ankle a second time. A sprained ankle is not stable. It is much easier to sprain it again when it is in a weak condition from a previous injury.

Common Causes and Symptoms

Ankle pain can be caused by an injury, arthritis, or another medical condition such as gout.

A common injury seen by an Omaha chiropractor is a twisted ankle. You may cause this by tripping over something or moving your ankle in an awkward direction when stumbling. The pain comes from over stretching the ligaments and tendons, which hold the ankle together.

Ligaments are bands of tissue that connect bones and help to hold the joint together. Tendons are bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones and help to move the joint. Injury may occur to both ligaments and tendons, leading to pain and difficulty with movement.

In a severe ankle sprain, these ligaments and tendons can tear. This condition increases the pain and takes a longer time to heal.

How is Ankle Pain Diagnosed?

Our ankle pain doctor in Omaha, NE, will conduct a physical examination, including a review of your medical history, and evaluate your ankle by touching it gently and moving it slightly to understand where the pain is coming from in your ankle. Explain to the doctor if you recently fell or somehow twisted your ankle.

Imaging tests, such as X-rays or an MRI, may be used to further evaluate ankle pain. Blood tests may help check for conditions such as gout and rheumatoid arthritis.

How Chiropractic Care Helps Treat Ankle Pain

Chiropractic care and acupuncture are two supportive treatments to reduce ankle pain. Chiropractic care involves manually manipulating joints and muscles to reduce pain and improve mobility. It can also help to reduce inflammation, which can be beneficial in relieving ankle pain.

How Acupuncture Relieves Ankle Pain

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese therapy that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points of the body. This needle placement helps release endorphins, natural pain-relieving substances made by the body. Acupuncture can help to reduce inflammation, loosen tight muscles, and improve circulation, all of which can help to reduce ankle pain.

Both of these treatments are non-invasive. Combination therapy can address the underlying causes of the pain and provide relief from the symptoms. Acupuncture and chiropractic care may work well with other treatments, such as physical therapy or medication.
