What Causes Foot and Ankle Pain?... And How Can Corticosteroid Injections Help?

If you’ve got foot and ankle pain, stiffness or an ache – it’s very tempting to think that it’s nothing, that it will go away on its own. Or, you might pass it off as having just over done it, or that it’s just a “ache” or a bit of stiffness that “everyone” your age suffers from…

There’s no obvious reason why it happened – but it doesn’t seem to be shifting and its been there a good while now.

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – and we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, long term foot and ankle pain is THE most common problems that we see in Cheshire Foot Clinic.

The Cheshire Foot Clinic Corticosteroid Injection Programme

Step 1 - Comprehensive Foot Examination

Our experienced and knowledgeable practitioners will examine :

  • Your foot and ankle range of movement

  • Your joints alignment

  • The quality of movement in your foot and ankle

  • Your muscle strength and tone

This process will help identify exactly what is causing your foot and ankle pain.

Step 2 - Customised Treatment Plan

The team at Cheshire Foot Clinic use the latest medical research and technology to produce a bespoke treatment plan which may include corticosteroid injections to get you back fit and active doing all the things that your foot and ankle pain is stopping you from doing.

Step 3 - Recovery

Each treatment aims to gently and progressively get your foot and ankle moving again without pain, as quickly as possible, to allow you to get back to normal and start doing the things you love.

We will give you a structured rehabilitation exercise program, to help break the cycle and prevent the problem from returning.

We use corticosteroid injections, mobilisation and manipulation to help improve movement and reduce pain and inflammation.
