Foot and Ankle Pain Relief
Relieve Your Foot and Ankle Pains Today with Our Physical Therapy Treatments
Do you have foot and ankle pain when standing, walking, going up/down stairs? Sometimes pain can be worse on your first steps in the morning with certain conditions. Foot and ankle pain can be extremely tiring because it is hard to escape as most of us have to spend a portion of our day on our feet.
Foot and ankle pain usually originates from two sources, traumatic from an ankle sprain or fracture and overuse injuries. Both categories can create problems with motion, strength, alignment and return to function with balance, walking and running.
Physical therapy is key in recovering these lost qualities. It is worthy to note the foot is composed of 28 bones and numerous ligaments, tendons and muscles and it has to absorb between 2-5 times body weight when walking to running. It is a hard working area of the body and so is vulnerable to overuse and strain.
Resolving these problems requires an understanding of the origin of the stresses on the foot/ankle. A thorough evaluation of the pelvis to the foot is key to really be able to treat the source of the pain, promote healing and restoration of function.
