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 help restore more normal ankle joint, achilles tendon and associated ankle tendons, and calf muscle function, with very positive outcomes and satisfaction levels. Additionally, manual therapy and hands on treatment by an osteopath, has been proven to help pain and range of motion.
More importantly it seems that combined therapy (multidisciplinary / multimodal therapy) of exercise and osteopathy has an even greater role, and effect on pain of the lower limb, 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.
