    The ankle joint, a critical structure in the human lower limb, facilitates movement and bears the body’s weight. Comprising three bones, the tibia, fibula, and talus, the ankle forms a hinge joint, allowing dorsiflexion and plantarflexion. Ligaments are vital in stabilizing this joint, including the lateral ligaments (anterior talofibular, calcaneofibular, and posterior talofibular) and the medial deltoid ligament. Yet, they are susceptible to sprains since they prevent excessive inversion and eversion of the foot. The Achilles tendon, connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone, controls plantarflexion. The ankle’s intricate anatomy enables various movements and supports weight-bearing activities.

    At F.R.O.M. Toronto Pain Relief Clinic, we treat conditions involving the ankle with physical therapy, massage therapy, and custom orthotics. Book your appointment now at our pain clinic in Toronto to address any pain you may be experiencing.

    Treatments for Ankle + Foot Pain

    Plantar Fasciitis – We use advanced laser, shockwave, and radio-frequency tru-sculpt technologies to treat foot pain, stabilize the plantar fascia, and enhance muscle strength, ensuring more comfortable daily walks.

    Foot Fractures – At F.R.O.M., we use lasers for early injury healing, radio-frequency sculpting at 8 weeks, and shockwave therapies at 12 weeks for unresolved bone issues. Our unique approach to ankle fracture care is unparalleled in Greater Toronto.

    Toe Bunions –  We specialize in custom insoles, spacers, tru-sculpt stimulators, shockwave, and laser therapies to realign big toes, strengthen foot muscles, reduce pain, and enhance appearance, potentially averting surgery.

    Ankle Sprain – Our treatment protocol combines rest with activity, shockwave therapies to remove fluid from the area, and laser therapies to spur sprained ligament healing and reduce local inflammation.  Recover quickly, get out of your walking boot, and walk pain-free by booking your consultation today.

    Achilles Tendonitis/Tears – At our clinic, we utilize shockwave and laser therapies for fluid and tendon issues; custom orthotics for alignment; tru-sculpt muscle stems for weakness; and our Stretch Lab ensures an optimal functional range of motion.

    Ankle Arthritis – Our clinic offers shockwave therapy for swelling, lasers and exercises for pain and cartilage enhancement, Tru-Sculpt technology for muscle strength, and our Stretch Lab, which ensures an optimal functional range of motion.

    What Causes Ankle And Foot Pain?

    Plantar Fasciitis –  The underlying causes of plantar fasciitis include weakness, scar tissue build-up due to repetitive strain along the rear foot, midfoot, and forefoot, instability, and unequal bearing of weight through the foot

    Foot Fractures  – They occur as a result of direct trauma, excessive force, or repetitive stress. Accidents, falls, dropping heavy objects on the foot, errant steps, overuse osteoporosis, and osteoporosis weakening the bones are common causes.

    Toe Bunions – Toe bunions are often caused by foot and ankle weakness, which results in excess weight bearing on the inside of the foot. This causes the big toe to shift outward.

    Ankle Sprain – The ankle is the joint that is most commonly sprained. As a result of these injuries, you may experience increased swelling, pain while walking, limping, and other issues that may affect your knee, hip, and back.

    Achilles Tendonitis/Tears – The Achilles tendon experiences a lot of wear and tear during walking, leading to tendonitis caused by weakness, unequal weight-bearing, and straining or fraying of the tendon.

    Ankle Arthritis – Ankle arthritis is caused by joint cartilage wear and tear due to injuries, age, genetics, obesity, and inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. It leads to pain, swelling, and restricted joint movement.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    FAQ

    A sprained ankle has the potential to cause back pain. When you suffer from a sprained ankle, you tend to alter your walking style to reduce pain. This altered walking style can lead to uneven pressure on your legs and spine, causing misalignment and strain in your back. Over time, this can result in back pain due to the extra stress on your back muscles and spine. Therefore, addressing a sprained ankle immediately and properly is crucial to avoid such compensatory injuries.

    Toronto Pain Relief Clinic recommends laser therapies, shockwave therapies, Tru-Sculpt muscle stimulation, RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation), bracing, and physical therapy for foot pain caused by plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, fractures, and bunions. These therapies reduce pain, and inflammation and aid in healing. Bracing and physical therapy improve mobility and strengthen the foot and ankle.
