Leg & foot pain may begin in any of the structures in and around the leg & foot. These include muscles and nerves as well as spinal vertebrae and the cushioning disks of the low back. Leg & foot pain may also come from regions near the lower back, the pelvis, the hip & buttock and knee. Swiss DolorClast® method treatment may provide relief where other therapies have failed and should be considered as a viable non-surgical solution.
Shin splints is a general term used to refer to a painful condition in the shins. It is often caused by running or jumping or sprinting, and may be very slow to heal. The formal medical term for the condition is medial tibial stress syndrome.
Pain and tenderness felt during ankle dorsiflexion and when pressure is applied to the lateral side of the tibia at the front of time lower leg. It is due to an acute inflammation of the tendon of the tibialis anterior muscle. The syndrome commonly arises from overuse of the ankle, for example from prolonged running and jumping on a hard surface.
Presents as foot pain that is usually felt on the underside of the heel and is often most intense with the first steps of the day or worse for the initial steps after rest. A heel spur is a hook of bone that can form on the heel bone (calcaneus) and is associated with prolonged plantar fasciitis, but often appears without any precipitating plantar fascitis for example it may form after previous trauma to the heel. Plantar fasciitis refers to the inflammation of the plantar fascia--the tissue that forms the arch of the foot. Early treatment of Plantar Fascitis could prevent the formation of the heel spur.
Presents as foot pain that is usually felt on the underside of the heel and is often most intense with the first steps of the day or worse for the initial steps after rest. Another symptom is that the sufferer has difficulty bending the foot so that the toes are brought toward the shin (decreased dorsiflexion of the ankle). A symptom commonly recognized among sufferers of plantar fasciitis is increased probability of knee pains, especially among runners if left untreated may result in heel spur formation.
Achilles tendinitis is tendinitis of the Achilles tendon, generally precipitated by overuse of the affected limb and is more common among athletes training under less than ideal conditions. Insufficient stretching of the calves may produce tightness which results in shortening of the tendon and during activities like running and jumping may cause irritation. Incidentally switching from excessively high heels to flats may also cause this condition in women.
Osteophytes, commonly called bone spurs, are abnormal outgrowths of bone occurring at joints. They are a classic finding in the most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis. The joint pains in the feet may respond well to shock wave therapy as it improves the circulation and relieves the pain.
Trigger points are isolated focal points located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. When touched, these trigger point produce pain that may be felt in a location far from the actual point. Trigger point pain often accompanies chronic musculoskeletal disorders or mimic more serious conditions for example trigger points in the low back or hip muscles like may mimic a leg & foot problem because the leg & foot falls within the referred pain pattern erector piriformis, gluteus medius, tensor fascia lata.
For more than 20 years, advanced shockwave therapy is used my many elite athletes and top football clubs as well as at the olympics, world cup rugby and soccer; as well as both the ATP and PGA tour events to help them perform at their peak and recover faster from (shoulder/elbow/heel) pain.
We had a fantastic experience with Dr Lily Leong at Back2Life clinic! She's patient, genuinely great with kids [and] my son's asthma has improved under her care. Highly recommend this clinic!
Dr Stakes cares more about your health and well-being than about making money. I knew he was a really trustworthy chiropractor because of what happened during my first few treatments with him.
I was suffering from shoulder pain for more than half a year and felt extremely frustrated and helpless. Dr Neil Stakes' treatment and advice helped me to heal the pain and gave me confidence that I could work towards living a pain-free lifestyle.
I was referred to Dr Stakes by a trusted friend. I shared with Dr Stakes why I finally came to see him and expressed my commitment to get well. And it was comforting and assuring when I hear him expressed his commitment to help me get well.
Dr Neil Stakes is amazing! Only a few sessions with him, my girl’s motor Tics reduced and after a few more sessions, her Tics is completely gone and she’s able to lead a happy typical life again. He’s really good with kids too, my 6 years old girl loves to visit him ????
I have been a patient of Back II Life since 2006 when I was pregnant with my last child. Dr Leong has been very crucial in helping my body deal with a challenging pregnancy, and then post labour, during and after cancer. Many underlying issues have resolved over time. I have less and less need for remedies as my health has slowly built up over the years with the help of Dr Leong, with only some basic maintenance needed. Back II LIfe truly helps people to get back their life!
