We Can Help Ease Your Ankle Pain

Rehabilitation specific exercise therapy and progressive graded exercise provided by an osteopath, has been proven to help ankle pain and ankle inflammation after a sprained ankle, helping restore more normal ankle joint movement, and achilles tendon function following achilles tendinitis and associated ankle tendinopathy, and calf muscle function, with very positive outcomes and satisfaction levels. Additionally, manual therapy and hands on treatment of the ankle by an osteopath, for issues such as ankle pain walking following a sprained ankle, has been shown to help pain and range of motion.

More importantly for ankle pain treatment from isues such as achilles tendinitis, it seems that combined therapy (multidisciplinary / multimodal therapy) of therapy physical exercise and osteopathy has an even greater role, and effect on pain of the lower limb, sore ankles, balance, ankle range of motion, and improve control of the foot, ankle and leg movements, helping restore normal daily activity.


I visited Michael following a recommendation from a friend. My previous osteopath had ‘maintained’ the problems with my lower back. Michael’s approach is not only to relieve discomfort, but to work on weak areas and improve muscle tone and flexibility. We have made steady progress and I am now able to undertake fairly strenuous walks e.g. in the Lake District and still be mobile and pain-free at the end of them. He is patient and always explains why we are doing particular exercises and ensures that I am doing them correctly. Michael’s approach is holistic. We have discussed other areas of my health and he has suggested complementary supplements to improve these.
