Ankle Pain Treatment
Feet undergo a lot of stress each and every day. They bear the weight of the entire body when we are mobile and where any complication is experienced it can hamper our entire way of living. However, those that know the joy of good foot structure and never experience pain in their feet may still benefit from seeing a podiatrist, because where that all important support structure known as the ankle receives a knock or a twist, this too can impede the ability to walk and move.
Ankle pain treatment is delivered here at Walk Without Pain podiatry clinics, not only to sportspersons, but to anybody that has rolled their ankle, or done damage to it that has left a lasting impression. We are a team of highly experienced foot and ankle therapists and for those living in Brisbane and its surrounding environs, we bring world-class treatments at relatively affordable prices.

Rest assured that when you book an appointment here at Walk Without Pain, we will do our utmost to thoroughly assess your issue and then find appropriate methods tailored to your specific pain problem. We can provide a range of different solutions in orthotic therapy and are one of the few clinics that offer prolotherapy, which is typically a very expensive treatment carried out by musculoskeletal physicians.
Ankle Pain Treatment Options
The symptoms of ankle pain usually come from a sprain, which is essentially where the ligaments have been stretched on the exterior of the ankle and this leads to pain and in most cases some swelling. In the immediate aftermath of turning over on your ankle and recognising that there is something wrong, there are a few steps you can take to prevent any additional damage being incurred.
First things first, get off your feet and rest that ankle as soon as possible. By rest, we mean keeping weight off it. Because there is swelling involved it is always a good idea to prepare or have someone else prepare an ice pack which should be applied to the area. Of course, it is always recommended that you wrap the ice in a thick towel or fabric to protect the skin.
In the time between booking an appointment for ankle pain treatment and actually getting to the clinic, there are advantages to using a compression bandage to support the damaged area. This can also help with the reduction of swelling and may bring you some relief. Another tip, which makes a difference in reducing the swelling, is to elevate the ankle as much as possible prior to receiving your treatment.
