Treat Your Foot and Ankle Pain with Ankle and Foot Therapy
Physical therapy can address multiple causes of foot and ankle pain.
Through specialized testing, our physical therapist can determine the possible cause of your foot or ankle pain and create an individualized program with exercises and stretches that will help you return to the activities you love, without pain.
Some causes for foot and ankle pain may include:
After fracturing a foot or ankle, there is usually a need for some sort of brace or cast, which causes severe weakening of the foot and ankle muscles. Building strength is important as you continue to recover.
The most common form of foot pain, plantar fasciitis causes a sharp pain in early steps, and after long periods of being on your feet. The pain is located on the bottom of the foot with the most tender portion being near the heel.
Achilles tendonitis most commonly results from strenuous exercise, such as running. If ignored, it can cause severe pain and lead to the tendon tearing or rupturing.
Whether you’ve experienced a weakening of the foot or ankle after spending time in a cast, you haven’t had enough support for your arches, or a sports injury has you down and out, our physical therapist will help you build back your strength, flexibility, and range of motion. Physical therapy treatments may include stretching exercises to increase the flexibility of your foot muscles and strengthening exercises for your lower legs and ankles to help alleviate the stress on your tendons.
