What causes foot and ankle pain?
Foot and ankle pain can result from an acute injury such as a fall that breaks or sprains your ankle. In many cases, foot and ankle pain are due to the gradual deterioration of joint cartilage or connective tissues because of overuse or the aging process.
Even small stresses at the ankle and foot can result in major distress and disability.
Causes of foot and ankle pain include:
Rotator cuff tears
What other treatments are there for shoulder pain?
As well as expert prolotherapy for shoulder pain, Dr. Abraham has considerable skills in using manual manipulation and massage therapies such as fascial deep tissue massage distortion and direct neural treatment.
He also works closely with leading physical therapists who use specialist techniques to relieve shoulder pain and strengthen the joint.
If your shoulder pain persists, you might benefit from steroid injections into the joint, which can effectively relieve shoulder pain by reducing chronic inflammation.
