Foot and Ankle Pain Therapy

When your feet hurt, your whole body hurts.

With 26 bones and about 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments, there is a lot that can go wrong with your feet. Sometimes the pain is brought on by injury — a break, fracture or sprain. Or you could have complications from wearing poorly fitting shoes, medical conditions or surgery.

Physical therapy helps strengthen the muscles that support your foot, ankle and lower leg, stabilize your ankle joint to prevent further injury, and improve flexibility, mobility and range of motion.

If you suffer any of the following causes of foot and ankle pain, or have recently had foot or ankle surgery, we can help:

  • Achilles rupture.
  • Achilles tendonitis/tendonosis.
  • Broken ankle.
  • Bunion.
  • Overuse injury characterized by pain and inflammation.
  • Plantar fasciitis.
  • Stress fracture.
  • Turf toe.
