Take care and be well.

Absolutely. We would have to evaluate you first obviously to make sure that it is musculoskeletal related and once the exact cause of your shooting pain is found and any other possible cause ruled out, it would be able to be treated by chiropractic adjustments, muscle work, and therapeutic exercises. I, myself, also use applied kinesiology and Cranio Sacral Therapy, which is another possible way to help.
Running is extremely hard on the spine, especially the low back because there is a lot of compression applied to your low back when you run (compared to less compressive sports like biking or swimming), so you need to get checked regularly and get wellness adjustments once your pain is gone. This way it will keep your spine open and stable even when you do run often.
Home exercises, strengthening, and stretching to do at home will help keep your body in its optimal state.
Hope this helps,

It is possible, but an exam in needed. Why are you getting these pains? It's "after" you run, not under the impact of the step? Is it both ankles?
Chiropractic can help you to run better, farther, and smoother by alignment of the spine, pelvis, knees, ankles, feet, and arch. All of these should be checked. Call your chiropractor for an evaluation!
