Thanks to a Camas chiropractor, I no longer have pain in my ankles! I’m just beside myself that after all these years I no longer have to worry about the pain and soreness I’ve had since I was a teenager. What is truly surprising is that the pain came from something that I absolutely did not suspect. I thought I had weak ankles, or that some forgotten injury caused permanent damage. I even considered I had nerve damage. I’ve heard about neuropathy and thought maybe I had a touch of that condition. Whatever the case, I finally got sick of the pain.
My regular doctor went so far as to do some scans on my ankles and said he couldn’t see anything wrong. He suggested I lose some weight, but we both sort of knew that was ridiculous because I’m not overweight in the slightest except for a slight stomach paunch. That is hardly enough weight to cause ankle pain. My pain usually flared up at certain times, with the worst sensation being a feeling of the muscle just going weak when I was walking. A few times I felt like I was going to fall down because my ankle just felt like it gave out.
By the time I went to the chiropractor, I was willing to try anything to get rid of this long term problem. He asked me several questions, examined my ankles, and then asked about my nutritional intake. I thought that was odd, but it turns out it was the perfect question because I’m deficient in magnesium. A severe magnesium deficiency can cause muscle weakness and pain, and in my case it manifested in that weird feeling in my ankles. I merely bought some supplements and I’m right as rain now. I didn’t even need any stretching to fix this problem.
