An ankle sprain can quickly become a chronic injury, where people spend weeks healing the ankle only to twist it again and have to start all over with the healing process. At Cross Bay Physical Therapy, our physical therapists ensure this does not happen to our patients.

Our feet are shock absorbers containing over 26 bones, 33 joints, and 5 tendons and are able to cushion one million pounds of continuous pressure during only 1 hour of exercise. While running and walking, our feet support 1.5 times our bodyweight and therefore, it is no surprise that sometimes, we experience foot pain.
Firstly, just to note, there are two exciting holidays this week. One, President’s Day, celebrates the country’s presidents and particularly honors George Washington, our first President, and celebrates his birthday on February 22nd. The other is Ash wednesday, a day of fasting for Christians and the beginning of Lent.
