FOOT & ANKLE PAIN

Foot/ ankle pain can affect any part of your foot, from your toes to your Achilles tendon at the back of your heel.  An injury to your foot/ankle will make it difficult to perform daily activities such as walking, driving a car, climbing stairs without pain.

 

What types of conditions can be helped with physical therapy?

 

Unfortunately, due to the complexity of foot and ankle joints, it is often difficult to isolate a singular cause of injury. If you have pain in your foot/ankle that isn't going away, physical therapy is a great step to take to improve your functionality. As with other body parts, increasing age leads to higher risk of injury from general wear and tear. Foot/ankle pain can be caused by any one of these conditions:
 

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Achilles tendonitis

  • Sprained ankles

  • Non-specific foot pain

  • Arthritis of foot and ankle

  • Sports injuries

  • Post-surgical rehabilitation

 

What happens in physical therapy?

 

When weighing your treatment options for foot pain and injuries, consider physical therapy. Physical therapy offers a wide variety of treatment options including strengthening, stretching, and home exercise programs. Our dedicated team of physical therapists will help you return to daily activities and enjoy a more active, healthy lifestyle.
