Foot & Ankle Pain? Look No Further for Expert Treatment

diagram highlighting common location of foot and ankle injuries

The foot and ankle complex can be an intimidating series of bones, ligaments, and muscles that function together to keep us moving. Foot and ankle pain can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from injuries to underlying medical conditions. Whatever the cause, it's important to seek expert treatment to ensure that the pain is properly managed. Treatment of the foot and ankle complex begins with a biomechanical analysis of the entire lower extremity in static and dynamic positions. We use an iPad® gait and/or running analysis to see your foot in slow motion. With this technology, we can better see movement as well as dysfunctional patterns.

Standard treatment of the foot and ankle follows with an emphasis on manual therapy (ASTYM®/IASTM), exercise prescription, and patient education for management of symptoms. Sometimes conditions of the foot and ankle require surgical intervention to achieve your goals. We work with all local surgeons and communicate with them for optimal post-operative care.

While these problems can be painful, there are many treatments available that can help to alleviate the symptoms. If you are experiencing foot or ankle pain, it is important to see a doctor so that they can diagnose the problem and recommend the best treatment option for you.
