A Solution for Foot and Ankle Pain

Foot and ankle pain may be keeping you from living your best life. In pain, you may find it difficult to walk, climb stairs or even perform tasks at work.

Here is a list of conditions that may be causing your pain:

  • Achilles Tendinitis or Rupture
  • Avulsion Fracture
  • Bone Spurs
  • Broken Foot or Toes
  • Bunions
  • Bursitis or Joint Inflammation
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Strain and Sprains
  • Trauma from Accidents
  • Arthritis

Resolving your foot and ankle pain may require a physical therapy plan, custom orthotics, or both. The good news is that The Therapy Network’s professional staff offers foot pain physical therapy and custom orthotics.

Physical Therapy is a Solution for Foot and Ankle Pain

When you are experiencing foot or ankle pain, your daily life is immediately impacted. Physical therapy is a solution, whether your pain is from a recent injury or you have prolonged pain from arthritis.

The benefits of physical therapy for foot and ankle pain include the following:

  • PT reduces the pain from ankle sprains
  • You will regain strength and balance
  • Therapy restores joint mobility
  • Your muscles from hip to foot will strengthen
  • You will manage pain and return to normal activity levels
  • If orthotics are needed, you will receive a professional evaluation and fitting

What to Expect with Orthotics

Orthotics are custom molded to fit the contours of your foot. They provide a new base or floor for your footsteps. The Therapy Network offers a range of options. Your therapist will thoroughly discuss the options to fit your specific needs.

Depending on the cause of your foot pain, you may wear orthotics for months to a lifetime. Your TTN physical therapist will discuss the plan that fits your needs. At first, you will gradually adjust to wearing your custom orthotics by wearing them a few hours a day. Over the course of weeks, you will gradually increase the hours until you feel comfortable wearing them all day.
