Omega Physical Therapy is committed to providing the most advanced treatments for ankle and foot injuries in patients from Bensonhurst in Brooklyn, NY. Dr. Dmitry Shestakovsky is commited to helping every patient relieve symptoms and resolve underlying issues for long-term results.
Your feet contain dozens of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons, and any of these structures can become injured or diseased, making foot and ankle injuries relatively common. Physical therapy plays a major role in the treatment of many types of foot and ankle injuries, including:
sprains and strains
Therapy is also an important component in post-surgical recovery following bunion surgery, bone spur removal, and surgery on the toes, feet, ankles and heels. Plus, during physical therapy you'll learn important techniques for avoiding future injury while improving the strength, flexibility and range of motion.
Before physical therapy begins, the source of pain and other symptoms will be carefully evaluated to ensure the therapeutic techniques used will be effective and appropriate. You'll be asked to provide a medical history as well as to discuss the cause of your injury or when you first noticed symptoms. You'll also be asked about any physical activities you participate in as well as work-related duties that require the use of your feet so your therapy can be customized to your needs.
Wearing shoes that fit properly is especially important since your footwear provides critical support to your feet and your ankles, as well as your knees and lower back. Warming up before exercising or participating in sports is also important. Plus, during therapy, you'll learn stretching techniques and exercises that can help keep your feet and ankles strong and supple even after your therapy treatments have ended.
