Plantar Fasciitis is a painful problem causing disability and everyday pain. Usually plantar fasciitis manifests as heel pain and is often caused by a sudden increase in physical activity. Plantar Fasciitis is common in runners and other types of athletes.
An ankle sprain injury requires physical therapy. The reason is because once the ankle is sprained, the surrounding ligaments and tendons are weak. They cannot support the weight and balance of your body meaning any little misstep can cause the ankle to re-twist or re-roll.
Foot pain sometimes feels like it just won’t go away. Physical Therapy can provide you the clarity, understanding, and activity you need to heal your feet and end foot pain. Some of the most common foot problems that we see in our office are plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinitis, and ankle sprains and fractures.
Foot problems though common are confusing. They are a part of the body which we use constantly yet when there is an injury, it is confusing to try and treat. At physical therapy, we teach you how to stretch and strengthen your entire foot so that you can overcome common foot problems.
