Ankle Pain – Magnetic Therapy Treatment Protocol

The ankle transmits body weight to the ground in order to move us forward during walking, running, and sports. To maintain stability and adjust diverse surfaces and terrains, it relies on a complex network of muscles, tendons, bones, and ligaments. The ankle is a frequently injured joint in the body. Any pain relief treatment for ankle joints, and that includes magnetic therapy, should be able to target and treat it based on the injury condition.

Ankle Injuries

The most common ankle injuries fall into two categories:

  1. Acute injuries, such as a ligament sprain (rolled/twisted ankle) or fractured ankle.
  2. Overuse injuries, such as Achilles tendinitis (or tendinopathy) or tibialis posterior tendinopathy, which commonly develop over time.

According to research, once an ankle is damaged, it is vulnerable to future injury unless a complete rehabilitation program is implemented.

The treatment of acute injuries should begin as soon as possible. A physiotherapist or doctor can determine whether an x-ray is necessary to detect any fractures, and this should be done as soon as possible. It’s also a good idea to avoid jogging or playing sports on the ankle until it’s healed.


Treating Ankle Pain with Magnetic Therapy

Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation can be helpful methods to treat ankle sprains and strains. The RICE method is always a popular way of dealing with injury, but in the search for a smoother recovery and the temporary relief of minor aches and pains, many athletes are now adding another letter to the acronym – RICEM where M is for Magnets. See how the RICEM method is helping athletes. There’s a growing number of sports therapists who no longer agree with RICE. Also, not used for chronic, just acute. Magnetic therapy for pain ankle pain works by reducing and inflammation.

Q magnets are a great choice to deliver magnetic therapy to the ankle joints. By reducing pain and inflammation, the therapy can help you to weight bear and return to your regular activities faster.

Overuse ankle injuries often develop gradually and may be associated with beginning a new sport or abruptly increasing your activity level. These injuries might arise because your body is not yet strong enough for the increased physical demands. Achilles tendonitis, a tendon irritation in the rear of the ankle, is the most frequent overuse ailment. 

Arthritis in the joint is another frequent chronic ankle disease that requires appropriate diet and physiotherapy, acupuncture or other anti-inflammatory intervention to restore mobility and strength. Read our free natural pain relief book to learn about anti-inflammatory foods for arthritis.
