FAQ’s About Foot and Ankle Pain

  1. It is common in a lot of change of direction sports, e.g. soccer, netball, basketball, touch footy etc.
  2. Runners can get some foot, ankle and shin pain, especially in the case that they overstride. When someone overstrides in their running the ground reaction force increases up through the leg. The force through the leg when the foot is under the hip is about 1.5x BW (Body weight), slightly out in front is 3xBW and far out in front is around 5xBW. This force can create an overload effect through he shins, heel and calf.
  1. Poor strength and/or tightness of muscles in and around the foot and ankle, e.g. calf (muscle at the back of the shin), tibialis (muscles at the front of the shin) and lumbricals (muscles at the bottom of the foot). Poor strength of these muscles means the foot can be unstable. An unstable foot can mean the ligaments are overworking and become lax, or the fascia (layer of tissue over the muscle) can become tight and create pain under the foot, which will make it hard to walk, jump a d run.
  2. Poor strength in areas up the body, means more pressure through the foot. While the foot is strong, it is not strong enough to take up the weight of most of the body without support from up the leg.
  3. Poor footwear is one of the most common causes of foot pain which people don’t think of. Depending on how you walk/run, this will create a wearing away of the sole of the shoe and in turn add pressure to different parts of the foot.
  4. Sport such as netball, basketball and soccer can be common ankle injury sports. This is because these sports a lot of jumping and landing/stopping quickly. In some cases athletes will be knocked off balance in the air and means the ankle can land outside the base of support or land on outer or inner parts of the foot which can sprain the ankle ligaments.

It can be, in some cases rehab can take up 1-2yrs for different foot ankle injuries like a Lisfranc injury or a navicular stress fracture. Even in less serious injuries like a low-grade ankle sprain, if left untreated can have recurring effects into the future.

Most foot and ankle exercises surround gaining stability in the foot and strength through the calf (muscle at the back of the lower leg). Depending on your injury you can look at what suits you best through our website

Most certainly, the foot and ankle muscles are innervated from nerves that originate in the lower back. If there is an issue of tightness, stiffness or even pain in the back or running down the leg, this can impact on the nerves and create issues of weakness, sensation and feeling down the leg into the ankle.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AN ADVANZ HEALTH APPOINTMENT

  1. Whether you book online or call to speak with one of our amazing admin team, you’ll find it simple and streamlined to make an appointment
  2. When you first come to our clinics you’ll be welcomed by our friendly team, before being invited to wait for your therapist in our comfortable waiting area
  3. Your therapist will then greet you and invite you into one of our private rooms. There, you will have a long conversation where your therapist will deeply listen to your story, hear your concerns and understand your goals.
  4. Next, your therapist will then perform a physical examination that will determine not only the cause of your symptoms (diagnosis), but also the underlying reasons for the injury (drivers). The assessment will include some measurements that can be used to track ongoing progress.
  5. A combination of hands-on treatment techniques and exercises will be used by your therapist in order to reduce pain, improve your alignment and mobility, and ultimately fix the root causes of your injury (the drivers), rather than just give you temporary relief.
  6. At the end of your initial consultation, your therapist will give you a detailed treatment plan, designed to fix your injury and get you back to 110% as fast as possible. The plan will include the total expected recovery time, the number of treatment sessions to book and your home-exercises. If your therapist believes you will benefit from one of our specialised 10-week-recovery-programs, they will discuss this with you.
  7. Our lovely receptionist will then help you to schedule the future appointments from your recovery plan and can also process your health fund rebate on the spot (if using private health insurance).
  8. And voila, you’re now well on your way to recovery!
