Are you dealing with foot or ankle pain?
WE CAN HELP YOU!
Tightness in the calf and Achilles tendon leads to excess stress on the structures on the sole of the foot (the plantar fascia).
Restoring ankle/foot mobility and flexibility through physical therapy helps decrease this stress.t
A lace-up brace typically helps manage symptoms and pain initially until you’ve become stronger and more stable with physical therapy exercises.
Proprioception and balance training exercises during physical therapy are necessary to increase the stability of your ankle joint.
Achilles Tendon Tear
A patient will be unable to push up on their toes with a full tear,while it will be painful and weak with a partial tear or Achilles tendonitis (inflammation of the tendon).
With an Achilles tendon repair you will be in a walking boot so that you are unable to press up on the toes. This is to ensure that the tendon is given time to heal properly.
Through physical therapy we will safely progress you by your Doctor’s orders out of the boot and help you regain your strength to return to normal mobility.
