Foot and Ankle Pain

Discover how physical therapy can get you back to the activities you love… fast!

The foot and ankle are complex structures that take a huge amount of force with every step you take. Following injuries or as part of the aging process, ligaments and other structures in the foot can change. This can result in improper or aggravated forces on the foot and ankle. With ill-fitted shoes and residual effects from prior injuries, pain can stem from poor stability, lack of mobility, or lack of strength in the stabilizing muscles.

The ankle, comprised of bones of the lower leg (tibia and fibula), forms an arch over the talus bone in the foot. This flexible arch opens slightly when bending the ankle and closes when extending it. When this does not work properly, or if the mechanics of the joint are not aligned, increased painful pressure can occur. The structure of the foot and ankle can affect the way your knee, hip,and back function and can even impact posture. With ankle pain and foot pain, a thorough evaluation of the ankle and foot is required before determining an appropriate treatment.

Just like the complexities of the hand, the foot and ankle is an elaborate structure that can affect the functioning of your knee, hip, back and even posture. With ankle pain and foot pain, there is a lot that needs to be evaluated first before deciding on the appropriate treatment.
