Knee/Ankle/Foot Problems in Newark

hands grasping knee in painPain in the knee, ankle, and foot is common, affecting people of all ages and activity levels. These conditions can significantly impact your daily life, making even simple activities like walking uncomfortable.

At First State Health & Wellness, we offer comprehensive solutions to help alleviate your discomfort and improve your quality of life.

Common Types of Pain

  • Knee: The knee is a complex joint with numerous ligaments, menisci, and cartilage that can all be sources of pain if they are not functioning correctly. Injuries, overuse, or degenerative conditions can lead to discomfort and mobility issues.
  • Ankle: Ankle pain often results from mobility issues or injuries such as sprains. Flat feet can also contribute to ankle pain by altering the biomechanics of the foot and ankle, leading to strain and discomfort.
  • Foot: Conditions like plantar fasciitis, where the fibrous tissue on the bottom of the foot tightens up, are common. The entire body’s weight presses down on our feet, making them susceptible to pain if not properly cared for. Foot sprains, joint restrictions, and other injuries are also frequent causes of discomfort.

How We Can Help

Chiropractic Adjustments

We use chiropractic adjustments to mobilize the joints in the knee, ankle, and foot. This helps restore proper alignment and function, reducing pain and enhancing mobility.


Movement is crucial for recovery. Our rehabilitation programs include exercises to strengthen and stretch the affected areas, promoting faster healing and preventing future injuries.

Low-level Laser Therapy

This non-invasive treatment works well for foot discomfort, including plantar fasciitis. It helps reduce inflammation and promotes tissue healing.


Custom orthotics can provide much-needed support and correct biomechanical issues, reducing pain in the feet and ankles.

Preventing Further Pain

To avoid worsening your condition, follow the PRICE protocol: protect, rest, ice, compress, and elevate the affected area. Additionally, keep the joints mobile and avoid activities that put excessive strain on the knees, ankles, and feet.
