Foot and Ankle Pain
Ankle and foot pain or injuries are very common with athletes, recreational activities, and even just normal daily tasks. Injuries and pain can range from minor sprains or strains to severe injuries such as fractures or from compensation (bunions etc). Pain can be noted from ligaments sprains, genetic predisposition, muscle imbalances, traumatic activities, or just plain getting older.
Foot physical therapy can be helpful by identifying the problem and looking for other related causes. This allows the ankle pain physical therapist to treat the causes while decreasing pain, and restoring your function. Gait analysis can be performed to ensure that the cause is not coming from other joints such as the knee, hip or even from your low back.
Many times conservative care through physical therapy for ankle pain and foot therapy can prevent surgery especially for ligament tears. Post operatively, foot physical therapy can decrease pain, improve biomechanics and guide you to return to activity. At Fort Lee Physical Therapy, the latest and best evidence-based techniques and treatments are utilized to restore flexibility, joint mobility, strength, and balance– getting you effectively and efficiently back to function.
If you are looking to return to recreational sport/activity or just to be able to walk or run without pain, our ankle pain physical therapists have the tools available to help you achieve your goals.
