Problems within the foot can cause a multitude of problems from the knees to the spine. Because the foot is the "base" on which we stand and walk, it can cause major compensations higher up when things go wrong.
However, sometimes pain in the foot is not coming from the foot at all! The lower back can refer pain into the foot along the large nerves in the leg. This is often associated with pins and needles or numbness.
Sprained ankles have a tendency to recur as a ligament once damaged will be weak and prone to further injury. Although nature is the best healer with a sprained ankle chiropractic care can help speed recovery along and help prevent a relapse with rehabilitation.
