Find Relief With a Physical Therapy Ankle Treatment Plan

Physical Therapy FAQ

The ankle is a complex structure that provides us with stability for walking and standing. Our ankles are an important part of the foundation that holds up our entire body.

Ankle sprains and strains are two of the most common injuries seen in our patients. These type of injuries may occur on either side of the ankle joint. Most often, a sudden stretching or twisting causes an ankle sprain or strain. Patients may experience pain, swelling or even a tear of the ligament.

Ankle pain and stiffness typically get worse over time. Patients tend to start favoring the other leg to avoid putting additional weight on the injured ankle. Delaying treatment after injury can lead to post-traumatic arthritis developing in the hurt ankle.
