What You Need To Know

Here at Optimal Osteopathy, we have a particular interest in how to reduce foot and ankle pain while improving function due to its anatomy and importance in daily life.

There are many different causes of foot and ankle pain. The anatomy of the foot is complex as it is made up of many small bones connected by ligaments, muscle and a strong connective tissue called fascia.

They need to all work together to allow the foot and ankle to work in unison. Our feet and ankles take a lot of stress in our lives and are often injured in falls or playing sport.

We commonly advise patients about foot health as we understand how much we use our feet even though we live in a society who sit at desks and sofas way too often.

When you come to visit us here at Optimal Osteopathy Cardiff, we will give a thorough assessment of your foot and ankle as well as other joints which may be causing the issue.

Treatment of the foot is complex but can be extremely effective. Many patients often come for foot and ankle maintenance treatment as it makes a significant different to almost everything they do.

Generally, our Osteopaths treat foot and ankle dysfunction with a combination of:

  • Deep soft tissue massage (AKA Neuro-Muscular and Muscle Energy Technique.)

  • Joint mobilisation and manipulation (moving your body to allow more movement from a joint.)
  • Exercise prescription. 
  • Lifestyle and postural advise.
