Ankle & Knee Injuries

  • Address plantar fasciitis 
  • Assist in pain management associated with osteoarthritis.

Ankles, Knees and Chiropractic

Pain and injury of the ankle and knee can often stem from dysfunction of nearby joints and tissues. As the musculoskeletal system is inherently connected, chiropractic care aims to determine what additional factors may be contributing to a patient’s presenting complaint. This natural and safe approach in diagnosis may consider the function and posture of the lower back, pelvis, foot and ankle and how they work together. In this way, Balanced Body Chiropractic aims to identify the source of dysfunction, which will optimise treatment and pain relief.
