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:
Non-specific foot pain
Arthritis of foot and ankle
