Shin, Ankle & Foot Pain Treatment • Action Performance Care
Shin, Ankle & Foot Pain Treatment in Solana Beach, CA: There are 26 bones in the foot, and each one is capable of causing foot pain. Each year, millions of Americans complain of having pain in their feet or ankles. Your feet are the foundation of your entire body and have a direct impact all the way through the spine. Stabilizing your postural foundation will not only help relieve pain and stress in your feet but can also aid in relieving pain felt in the lower back and spine.
Common Types of Foot Pain
Heel Pain: If pain is located in your heel, then you may have a condition called plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of tissue (fascia) that reaches from the heel to the toes and supports the muscles and arch of the foot. Proper orthotics can help to alleviate and possibly eliminate this pain.
Ball of Foot Pain: Ill-fitting shoes are often the cause of this type of pain. Strenuous activity can also be the cause. An example of this is unusual stress caused by running or jumping.
Arch Pain: Plantar fasciitis is also the most common cause of this type of pain. It affects the heel, arch or both. It is important to see Dr. Dawn Liu right away if you are feeling this type of pain for an extended period of time.
Toe Pain: Although not always the case, gout (a form of arthritis) can cause pain in the toes. Avoiding specific types of food as guided by Dr. Dawn Liu along with rest and ice can help to alleviate the symptoms of gout.
Treating Foot, Ankle, and Shin Pain at Action Performance Care
It is very helpful and effective to directly relieve the symptoms of shin splints, calf strain or Achilles tendonitis. This can be achieved very well with Active Release Technique. However, is it more important is to find out where the disruption to the whole body movement is and correct that patter. That way, the problems can be removed from their roots.
Active Release Techniques incorporate similar techniques to deep tissue massage and myofascial release because it works by manipulating soft tissue which reduces stress placed on joints and nerves. But every technique differs and depending on the person. They may respond better to other various treatments. Many patients begin to feel relief after just a few sessions as the inflammation and tension in the body begins to decrease.
The goal of ART® is to restore optimal texture, motion and function of the soft tissue as well as release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels. This is accomplished through the removal of adhesions or fibrosis in the soft tissues via the application of specific protocols. Adhesions can occur as a result of acute injury, repetitive motion and constant pressure or tension. ART® eliminates the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions.
This is exactly how we do it at Action Performance Care. Come and experience for yourself how quickly you can be out of pain and on your way back to your favorite activities.
