Signs or Symptoms

Pain and ache in the foot especially around the big toes.

Entrapment, pinching, of a nerve that supplies the big toe area of the foot as it passes around the heel bone.  This can cause pain that mimics bunion pain.

Shoe inserts, injections and in severe cases surgery.

AK Approach

The muscles of the foot and ankle are evaluated for proper function. Corrections are aimed at normalizing the muscle functioning of the foot. Therapy is then aimed at strengthening the ligaments and muscles of the foot and the need for orthotic support. Nutritional therapies aimed at increasing factors that would lead to relaxing the muscles and reducing any inflammation is considered.

Other lifestyle modifications are used to prevent or minimize exacerbating the condition. A specific program for your needs is created.
