Ankle pain may be caused by a range of conditions including injury, arthritis, and swelling. We provide supportive treatment to assist with pain-relief, reduction of inflammation, and promotion of healing for many conditions causing pain in the ankle.

Ankle Injuries

After an injury, acupuncture can often speed the healing process. Injuries to the ankle area include broken bones, sprains, tendonitis, and tendon rupture. Our practice provides supportive care for these conditions. When patients are dealing with acute injuries, it is usually appropriate to go to the emergency room first, and follow up with an orthopaedist before visiting our clinic.

Arthritis Conditions

Arthritis of the ankles, knees, and hips is relatively common. osteoarthritis is what we often think of as inflammation from wear and tear on the joint. Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune condition which can affect the joints. Other auto-immune conditions can also cause pain and swelling in the joints. Bacterial infections may cause a condition called reactive arthritis. Medications such as antibiotics can occasionally lead to tendon problems in the ankle area.

We provide specialized acupuncture treatments which offer effective relief for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, reactive arthritis, and other types of arthritis. Acupuncture when offered by a skilled professional can assist in the relief of pain and swelling. Our patients often report a 20-30% improvement in these symptoms within one or two sessions. While every case is different, we usually see that the relief lasts longer and the benefits increase after several sessions.

Ankle Conditions with Swelling

Ankle conditions with swelling may be the result of a previous injury, an inflammatory condition, or a problem with the veins or lymph system. In these cases, we are often able to assist with the reduction of swelling, allowing our patients to regain range of motion and function.
