Sprained Ankle Bentonite Clay Wrap diy home remedies
Hi everybody.Claudia here, with healthy treasures.So my daughter woke up this morning telling me that her ankle is hurting.She twisted it a couple of weeks ago.This has happened before.And we used clay to treat her ankle.The last time it happened her ankle had been hurting her for a month or so.Is that right so it was hurting her for about a month or so.And we put the bentonite clay on it a bentonite clay paste on it that night and the next morning it had completely stopped hurting.So she’s kind of twisted it or rolled.
It again and she woke up telling me that it was bothering her.And so we’re going to put a clay paste on it today.And i’m going to show you how we do that.All that we’re using is some water, 12 cup bentonite clay powder, a foot band to keep it around her foot, normally i don’t use this but because we’re applying the clay during the day we want to make sure it stays on, a wooden spoon and saran wrap.So i’m just going to mix together the.
Clay and water.Usually you use 1 part clay to 3 parts water.There isn’t an exact recipe just add water and mix until you get a nice paste.The clay will soak up a lot of the water.You can just feel it out as to how much water you need to add.Girls giggling hey you! something that you want to remember is that you don’t want to use a metal spoon.Some people say that it negatively affects the clay’s healing properties.Just use a wooden spoon or a plastic spoon.I’m just going to pull off a strip of this saran wrap and apply the clay to her.
Foot.Jasmine!! giggling i’m just going to put it around her whole area that’s bothering her.If you wanted to you could even add some essential oils into the clay.Like lavender or tea tree.Both of those help reduce inflammation as well.This time i’m just doing a plain clay paste no essential oils included.So you want it nice and thick.Just a nice thick layer of it.And now i’m going to wrap it with saran wrap.If it was night time i would just leave it like this.But seeing as how we’re doing this during the day we’ll apply.
An extra wrap just to help keep it on there.We’ll leave this one for half an hour to an hour.And she can wash it off once she’s done with it.And this really helps to get rid of the pain.What happened last time we did it it completely stopped hurting the next morning and felt completely fine.Yeah, the pain was just gone and it had been there for over a month.Yeah and i could barely walk on it.Yeah, you were having a hard time walking.

Why Does My Ankle Still Hurt Months After I Sprained It
We are going to talk today about ankle pain and this is actually because three times this morning, i had patients come in who had sprained their ankle many months ago and were still having pain in this area of their ankle right here.This is actually really common problem.What happens is when you sprain your ankle you turn it like this and when that occurs, you end up tearing or stretching or ripping the ligaments in this area.Look at this picture now and you can see these are the ligaments right here.So, these are the ligaments that.
Actually should give most of the stability to your ankle.When you sprain your ankle, about half of patients end up with an unstable ankle afterwards.It is usually because these ligaments do not heal properly after the injury.The nice thing is there has been research now that shows that even many months or even years after the injury the patients are coming in that are still having pain and inflammation in this area can have be rehabbed actually quite easily.What we first need to do is to stabilize the ankle for a number of weeks.
With an ankle brace.After that, we get them started on doing daily balance exercises and we do not have time to go into that now but there are some very specific rules about how to best do those exercises.You do those for at least 30 days straight while wearing that ankle brace pretty much every single day and every moment that youre bearing weight.After that, we normally will see the patients back.We will do some tests to check their balance and if everything is going well, we can tell them at that point they can take.
Off the ankle brace for daytoday activity but they want to continue wearing it for exercise activities.Eventually what they want to work up to is doing balance exercises on a wobble board.We are not here today trying to give you detailed information how to do this.There are actually is detailed information on our website, just go to the website and do a search for unstable ankle, you find details on both how to best treat this problem on your own and when you should be seen a podiatrist about the problem.Again, just check out the website.

Inside of Foot Pain and Posterior Tibial Tendonitis Treatment Seattle Foot
Hi.So today i want to talk about pain on the inside of the foot and the ankle.What i’m talking about is right along here underneath your ankle bone and cruising down attaching to the inside of your foot.That’s actually the attachment of a muscle or tendon that’s called the posterior tibialis, and it’s one of the most hardest working tendons in your foot.It helps to slow you down as you hit the ground and helps to push you forward as you go forward.So if either of those activities are being done a lot during exercise, for.
Example, that tendon can getover worked.Also if your foot is flattening out too much, that tendon works very hard to try and support your foot.Now if you look over at this picture you can actually see that tendon attaching to the back of your leg, cruising on down underneath your ankle bone and they’re attaching the inside of your foot.So if you think about that tendon like this rubber band here attaching in there, if anything puts tension on it, it’s going to start to get painful over time.
So our whole goal when we treat this problem, just like we take this rubber band and we make it tight there or we make it loose here, our goal is to reduce tension on that tendon.And this is where a lot of treatments fail.They don’t do enough to try and reduce tension on the tendon.So there’s several different ways to do that.Now one of the simplest ways is to just make sure you’re wearing a stable shoe.A stable shoe will help stop you from rolling in.If you go to our website and search.
For shoe lists, we have a list of shoes that you can download that fit that criteria.Number two is to use a good arch support inside your shoe.This is just an overthecounter arch support, fairly inexpensive.By going underneath the arch here helps stop it from going down.That takes tension off of the tendon.You can again find a list on our website.Just go to the website, do a search for posterior tibial tendonitis or posterior tibial, and that will pop right up.You can even look for inside of foot pain.Now if that ‘s not enough we can use a custom.
Orthotic.Custom orthotics work better because they conform tighter to the arch of the foot.So that if somebody has chronic pain, not just a short term condition, they’re a more chronic condition then we may use a custom orthotic simply to take more tension off that tendon.Finally even for around the house, using a flip flop or a sandal like this that has really good arch support, this one has really exceptional arch support, stops it from going down.If you’re having this type of pain try to avoid going barefoot.Now if you initially have.
The pain and it’s not getting better and especially if these simple things are not working, definitely come in and see us.What we may need to do is put you in a waking boot like this one for a week or two just to take more tension off of there and to allow the tendon to heal.Again tension is really key.If you just imagine that tendon as a rubber band, anytime that you are pulling on it, it has more potential to get injured.So don’t live with this problem.
How to Treat an Ankle Sprain
Hi, my name is Troy giles.I am a of chiropractic and a natural internist.Today i wanted to talk a little bit about ankle sprains.As i was taking some garbage out i had a big box here on my back porch.Well, in fact, lets just take a field trip so you can see what i did, because i was not happy.So i have this big box.First off, don’t carry a box when you can’t see what you are doing.As i came off my back porch today.We are.
Getting ready for a little bit of a storm here in utah.I stepped down and i missed this step right here.As i hit it, my leg, my ankle fell off and i lit on this inverting my ankle and that is a little bit sore right there.Luckily, with that kind of fall, i could have easily broken my ankle.So as i am laying right here in the street, i am thinking i’ve got an idea for my tutorial today.So ankle sprains.So ankle sprains usually are inverting, an inversion ankle sprain.Inversion means that your ankle drops like this and.
Usually goes out.Why don’t i use the other ankle.It usually goes here.So that is an inversion sprain.Rarely are they eversions, this way.It is an inversion.So all of the ligaments and tendons are pulled all along the outside of your ankle this way and up into the high top.But we usually find is that the talus, which is the bone in the top part of the ankle gets jammed up into the ankle.So i have got people that come in, who are wearing boots, they have seen the orthopedist, the podiatrist.They have seen their physical.
Therapist.Still after months are unable to walk or put full pressure on their ankle.One in particular was a young lady, who had been, she was playing basketball and inverted, and two months later came in and said you know, this is my last resort, what do you think i said well lets take it off and examine.The xrays were negative.She had done all of the work, mri’s were negative.She had had a really good sprain, but her talus had jammed up inside.I don’t really have a picture of the talus, but the talus sits roughly right.
Here okay that is at the top part of my ankle, right here.So what happens is as you invert your ankle here, the pressure pushes the talus up.Its superior dislocates it or subluxates it where the talus, the bone right here comes up towards this, the ankle.So what we do as s of chiropractic, is we have the patient take off their shoe and we will put our fingers across this area, across the talus and the patient is actually laying down on the table.When my good buddy was just here, i should have had him do this, but i wasn’t.
Thinking.In this horizontal position, that my legs are in, we take a contact, right here above the talus.Now picture my leg here okay my foot is still here.Here is my foot coming up.We take that talus and do a little bit of disctraction and then we give it a little bit of a yank, pulling down, like this.What that will do is take the talus and bring it out of that mount position.Now, my ankle, and i am so happy with this, i have pretty.
Good range of motion, i thought for sure i , i had messed it up because it was quite sore.But see that happened about a half hour ago, so it was a minimal sprain, but i thought i messed it up in the very beginning, because it hurt like a sonofagun.So i am laying there in the street, you know may legs are up in the, and i am kind of doing one of these, and i am thinking oh man, i hope somebody doesn’t drive by.As soon as i got up and.
Got the box and a truck drove by, but it is so common.Once you have inverted it or pulled it, you have the preponderance to do that again.The likelihood of doing that over and over.So you get chronic ankle sprains and those ligaments and tendons keep getting pulled.So what we want to do is set the talus first, number one.Number two, and i don’t have my glasses, we want to do motility.Motility is a supplement that helps to repair ligaments, tendons, discs, muscles, bones.This is a repair of tissue of our joints.So we want to give you specific.
Nutrients to help repair the joint.Then we want to adjust it as needed, make sure that not just the talus is adjusted, but that all twenty, is it 23 or 28 i can’t remember.I think it is 23 bones of the foot, making sure that all the joints are moving, because after an inversion sprain, your muscles will spasm up and misalign and kind of chronically keep it out of alignment.So we want to make sure all of the joints are moving well too.Oft time with an inversion sprain the will put you into a boot.I just wish that.
The soles of the boots weren’t so thick, because usually there is a good thick, you know this much of a sole, on the bottom of the plastic boots.If your does put you into a boot.Ask them if there is a way you can it in some kind of a shoe or something that would level it, so you don’t walk around unlevel for six weeks, because your messing your knees and your low back up.So we are not thinking about walking around pole vaulting higher on that.As far as rehabilitation, you want to stretch your ankle.You want to actually.
Do the abc’s.Point and say a, here is a b.Here’s c.Here’s d.Here’s e.So you spell the abc’s with your foot.That will help stretch it.As you feel like you can, stretch it towards the end range of motion, until you start to, just start to sense pain and then back off.You can do this more and more throughout, you know when you get off to like two weeks, three weeks, you can be more aggressive with it and do a lot more stretching, so that the.
Lines of the ligaments will, usually when a scar tissue lays down, it lays down like this, haphazard.We want to get it to where it is stretched like this.We do that by stretching.So if i have a spider web on that side of my ankle, if i invert it.We will do it again on this side.If i invert it, it will be like stretching the cross fibers and these guys are going to break allowing the lines, or orientation of the ligament to heal along those lines.That makes for a stronger ankle.Of course, basketball players, football players,.
Basic First Aid How to Correctly Treat a Sprained Ankle
You know, at some point in time many of us are going to sustain an ankle injury of some type.Hi, i’m captain joe bruni, and what i’m going to talk about is how to properly treat a sprained ankle.A sprained ankle can be a pretty painful experience.The first step is to remove the foot covering including the shoe, and sock if the person is wearing one to evaluate the injury taking care to try and loosen it up as much as possible to avoid causing the victim further pain.It may also be necessary to lay the victim down.
And try to get the ankle as higher in the chest region to help reduce blood flow to the area temporarily.Once the shoe and the sock have been removed we can begin to assess the foot region and the ankle to see if there is discoloration, deformity, and swelling.Normally, with an ankle sprain, swelling will happen very quickly.So, it’s important to apply some type of cold compress or some type of ice pack to that area, temporarily, for approximately ten to fifteen minutes, removing it to avoid a cold injury from the ice or.
The ice pack.After ten or fifteen minutes of the skin rewarming itself, this can also be applied again.Also, while the skin is rewarming itself, some type of elastic bandage or pressure bandage can be applied to help stabilize that ankle and foot region.Once the pressure bandage is applied, again reapply the ice or the cold pack for ten minute intervals to fifteen minute intervals.In this way, you’ll help to reduce pain and swelling.It also may be necessary to take the person to the emergency department for an xray to evaluate.
