The ankle is a common joint to rollover causing a sprain or worse. Even once it is healed and pain free it can still cause problems for you with everyday movements. Come see Kamloops Osteopathy Alexa Cochran to fix those ankles and start moving well again.

Our body has a system of alternating mobile and stable joints, the ankle is a mobile joint. Sometimes when there is injury at that joint, after the healing process it can lack mobility. Which in turn creates compensations at other joints in order to make the same movement pre-injury. It is important to rehab the injury back to full function in order to fend off any future compensatory injuries. 

Ankle issues are often when the best time to utilize osteopathy is. It can help by working on restrictions at the ankle using soft tissue, joint mobilizations and muscle energy techniques. Once these restrictions are cleared then exercises will be given to create long lasting adaptations and reduce the risk of other injury. Book an appointment with Osteopathic Manual Practitioner Alexa Cochran at the Movement Mechanics to help the healing of your old ankle injuries.
