Physical Therapy Foot
Many people suffer from foot pain. At Cross Bay Physical Therapy, we apply Physical Therapy to help our patients end this daily foot pain for good. Foot pain can be spurred by increased activity on one’s feet and if the feet are ill-prepared, it can lead to heel pain, plantar fasciitis, or Achilles Tendinitis.
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.
