Maximising your flexibility means you are likely to have less injuries, less pain, improved posture and balance, increased strength, and better physical performance.

If your joints do have a wide range of motion, you can enjoy optimal physical and functional performance with little pain and discomfort.

ankle pain and relief | Chiropractor advise

Your body’s musculoskeletal system is comprised of bones and muscles which are joined together by connective tissues – like cartilage or ligaments. Your joints are the most vulnerable part of the entire system, with your ankles copping the brunt of your body’s pressure. Ankles are flexible and allow a wide range of movement.
