Whether you are walking down the street, climbing stairs, or dancing with that special someone, your legs and feet are moving a good portion of your life.
Your legs are the structural foundation for all of these activities. Your lower leg is comprised of a multitude of joints, bones, and other soft tissue structures, which are responsible for a majority of your function.
Common leg, foot, and ankle pain conditions include:
In fact, many people with night pain, numbness and tingling or swelling have lower leg, ankle, or foot problems. These symptoms need to be investigated as they could be leading indicators of issues that your Orthology provider can treat effectively to relief pain.
The comprehensive approach used by Orthology providers encompasses nonsurgical treatments that relieve leg and ankle pain, promote healing and prevent future injuries. They excel in customized treatment plans that are designed to increase your strength, restore your range of motion, and alleviate pain throughout the lower leg and foot.
Treatment begins with gaining a thorough understanding of the source of your pain, a clear diagnosis, and a personalized plan for getting you back to doing what you love. Trying to return to athletic activities? No problem. They will even provide you a timeframe for your return.
Because Orthology providers employ a hands-on approach and begin treatment at your very first appointment, you should feel relief or increased function quickly. You’ll also likely experience improved performance from your leg.
At the outset of care, your medical and physical history is assessed along with other lifestyle factors (such as the type of injury, age, sport, dance, and other needs). With this information, Orthology providers are able to develop a custom care plan that fits your goals.
Employing soft tissue work on muscles, tendons, fascia; joint mobilization on the leg, foot, and ankle; muscle strengthening for thigh, calf, gluteal and other muscles; your provider will utilize Orthology’s research-based, hands-on approach to get you on the path to recovery. And while noninvasive treatments can often prevent or postpone surgery, they understand that everyone is different. Expect that your care will take anywhere from 4 to 8 visits and you will leave with the resources you need to help prevent further issues.
