Over 75 percent of Canadians will experience foot pain or complications in their lifetime. Fortunately, there are treatment options that can relieve your pain and discomfort when it comes to your feet, one of these being physiotherapy. With the goal of regaining your physical ability in terms of your foot function, physiotherapy can help alleviate pain and encourage healing from several foot conditions. Chiropodist Tony Abbott provides physiotherapy in four different components to help get you back on your feet. They include:
- Manual foot therapy. Common foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, acute ankle sprains, neuroma pain, or aching feet in general, often need a restoration of balance in order to successfully heal. Manual therapy is efficient in treating these conditions by releasing joint tension to stop muscle strains and restoring natural function. Through manual therapy, fluid movement and blockage can once again return to their normal balance in the foot to alleviate painful symptoms of your condition.
- Laser therapy. Laser technology is an efficient treatment option to treat common conditions of neuromas, diabetic wounds, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, and others. Laser treatment is a quick and painless procedure that will promote cell growth and regeneration, reduce swelling and inflammation, increase circulation, and stimulate nerve function all of which encourage efficient healing.
- Gel Compression Sleeve. Compression sleeves are commonly used to reduce swelling and pain in any foot injury or condition that causes such symptoms.
