The foot and ankle are amazingly complex structures that take a huge amount of force with every step that you take. Following injuries or with age, ligaments and other structures in the foot can change, resulting in improper or aggravated forces on the foot and ankle. With ill-fitted shoes and residual effects from prior injuries, pain can occur from poor stability, lack of mobility or lack of strength in the stabilizing muscles.
The ankle is made up of the bones of the lower leg (tibia and fibula) forming an arch over the talus bone in the foot. This is actually a flexible arch that opens slightly when your foot hits the ground and closes at the end of your step. If this does not occur properly or the mechanics of the joint are not in good alignment, increased painful pressure occurs.
Just like the complexities of the hand, the foot and ankle is a very complex structure that can affect the functioning of your knee, hip, back, and even your posture. With ankle pain and foot pain, there is a lot that needs to be evaluated first before deciding on the appropriate treatment.
At Sports Conditioning and Rehabilitation, our expert physical therapists have years of training in evaluating the movement of your foot, ankle, and legs. We perform an analysis of your foot and ankle joints as well as the muscles in your legs.
Furthermore, our physical therapist analyzes your walking and running patterns to determine the root cause of your foot pain or ankle pain so it can be treated quickly and effectively.
Occasionally, orthotics may be recommended to help stabilize your foot. At Sports Conditioning and Rehabilitation, our physical therapists utilize a state of the art digital scanning system to develop a precise digital representation of your foot that the orthotics lab can use to build custom orthotics made specifically for you.
Trust us to help you relieve your pain quickly and restore your normal walking / running activities.
