Many people experience pain in the feet and ankles. Plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, Morton’s neuroma’s, sprains/strains and other conditions can all be managed effectively with conservative care at the Boise Spine Center. Usually, soft tissue therapy with Active Release Technique and/or Graston technique can help break fibrotic adhesions that cause pain in the muscles and tendons of the feet. Then, creating mobility of the ankle, as well as good stability and proprioception of the rest of the foot, is an essential aspect of restoring normal function of the entire lower extremity.
The doctors at the Boise Spine Center are trained to treat a wide range of injuries and pain syndromes. They treat injuries of the neck and back as well as the extremities. Acute injuries such as sprains and strains, as well as chronic, degenerative conditions can be effectively treated conservatively at the Boise Spine Center. Some conditions require additional medical treatment, and the doctors at the Boise Spine Center work closely with specialists in all areas of medicine and help patients get to the right provider when a referral is indicated. Additionally, many orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons refer patients to the Boise Spine Center when surgery is not indicated or for post-operative rehabilitation.
