Ankle Pain

Ankle pain can be caused by any number of reasons, so the chiropodists / foot care specialists at Hamilton’s Active Foot Care Clinic and Orthotic Centre can help with a variety of options:

Orthotics

An effective treatment of the symptom of ankle pain, orthotics treat pain and inflammation by placing the foot in the correct position for standing and walking. Our custom orthotics, pediatric orthotics and sport orthotics are available in a variety of shapes, corrections, materials and designs to effectively treat your ankle pain.

Shockwave

Also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the ankle by stimulating metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue, thus reducing ankle pain.

Cold laser therapy

Otherwise known as low level laser therapy (LLLT), cold laser therapy has been widely used in Europe for over 35 years, and has been the subject of worldwide studies with over 3,500 scientific papers published. Our Hamilton or Brantford, Ontario clinic can effectively treat your ankle pain using cold laser therapy.

Orthopedic shoes

Adequate footwear plays an important role in reducing and eliminating ankle pain. At Active Foot Care Clinic and Orthotic Centre in Hamilton, our chiropodists / footcare specialists can assist you in selecting the most appropriate orthopedic shoes for your feet.

Surgical treatment

Depending on the cause of your ankle pain, surgery may be required to correct the problem. Our Hamilton based chiropodists / foot care specialists are capable of providing a referral to an orthopedic surgeon for such cases.

Strengthening & stretching

Elastic resistance can increase strength and mobility, encourage blood flow, and successfully reduce ankle pain.

Contrast baths

Alternating heat and ice will cause circulation in the ankle to open and close, thus reducing ankle pain and inflammation.

Medication

Our Hamilton and Brantford chiropodists / foot care specialists are capable of prescribing oral NSAID medication (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), anti-inflammatory injectable cortisone and anti-inflammatory or analgesic topical medication to help you better manage your ankle pain.
