What kinds of foot and ankle injuries can be treated with physical therapy?

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

  • fractures

  • arthritis

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.

How is physical therapy used to treat foot and ankle issues?

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.

Is there anything I can do to avoid injuring my feet and ankles?

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.
