Efficient Ankle Pain Treatment in Melbourne
Ankle pain is a common condition that can be difficult to live with. Pain that becomes chronic may require ankle pain treatment. Melbourne patients with ankle pain may experience pain inside, outside or along the Achilles’ tendon. Ankle pain may disappear on its own or respond to home treatments, such as icing the painful area and resting.
Following an injury, you may need a specialist to treat the pain. If you have symptoms such as severe pain, swelling, redness, warmth, or tenderness, you should seek medical attention.
Common causes of ankle pain include:
- Inadequate footwear
- Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or inflammatory arthritis
- Poor blood circulation
- Nerve damage
- Broken foot or sprained ankle
- Achilles’ tendinitis or tendon rupture
Ankle Pain Prevention
Sometimes ankle pain is inevitable, but there are ways to prevent it. To avoid needing ankle treatment, Melbourne athletes, runners and residents can take precautions such as:
- Warming up before exercise or sports
- Wearing adequate, athletic shoes for your foot and chosen exercise
- Replacing shoes often, especially when the heels start to wear
- Avoiding running on uneven surfaces
In order to treat ankle pain, our practitioners will need to diagnose the cause of your pain and discomfort. Once we know the cause, we can customise an ankle pain treatment plan for you, such as rest, medication, or surgery.
For long-lasting, effective ankle pain treatment, Melbourne residents can visit one of our local clinics or contact us on 1300 DR FEET.
