How Can Physical Therapy Help with Your Foot & Ankle Pain?
Physical therapy can help but firstly, accurately diagnosing your ankle or foot issue is
critical. Secondly, your physical therapist will watch how your entire body moves to determine
the best, most effective exercises to prescribe. Lastly, treatment can consist of soft tissue
massage, joint mobilizations, myofascial release, strengthening exercises, education,
stretching, and electrical stimulation. Ankle-specific tools such as a
balance board or Airex pad may be used to help accelerate stability. Your physical therapist
may recommend specific shoes, footwear, or orthotics .
How Does Foot & Ankle Pain Occur?
The ankle and foot are complicated joints with many bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles all
interacting for their complex functions . Because of this complexity, foot and ankle pain can
develop from arthritis, overuse, muscle or tendon strain or sprain, tarsal tunnel syndrome
(nerve sensitivity or inflammation in the foot), fractures, plantar fasciitis , metatarsalgia,
tendinitis , and arch pain. Our physical therapists can identify weaknesses all along the
kinetic chain (one body part affecting another) and give you exercises to target those areas.
For example, research has shown that hip strengthening exercises are beneficial to the
management and prevention of recurrent ankle instability.
