Exercises for Foot and Ankle Pain
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on May 11, 2016
Given the number of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles that make up our feet and ankles, I have long felt that rather than spot treat areas of pain and stiffness, it makes more sense to work at improving overall blood circulation and joint play throughout the many articulations involved.
As mentioned in the video, sometimes, scar tissue or other issues may be inhibiting sufficient joint play in one or more articulations to allow for healthy gains in mobility and functional strength with exercise. If you suspect this is the case in your situation, I would suggest looking for a local practitioner who has experience with joint mobilization throughout the extremities - many chiropractors, physiotherapists, osteopathic physicians, and naturopathic doctors have this type of training.
I hope this video proves to be helpful.
