Physical Therapy for Ankle Pain

In this short video, our PT, Karl Rusch, is demonstrating how out patients experience ankle and foot mobilizations during their physical therapy treatments.

What is ankle pain?

Ankle pain may come in many different forms and can be the result of a variety of different problems. Some main types of ankle pain are ankle sprains, tendonosis, shin splints, and ankle arthritis.

The ankle is a hinged joint formed by the meeting of three bones- the tibia, fibula and the talus. Its bony knobs on the side are known as the malleoli. All in all, the ankle is a complex structure. These structures provide important standing and walking stability. In addition, ligaments on the outside of the ankle provide stability. There are also tendons that attach to the ankles’ muscles.

The solution to your ankle pain depends on the source and the pain type. Consult with your doctor and discuss their recommendations for treating the pain.

How Physical Therapy Can Help

If you have sustained a serious injury to your foot or ankle, you may consider looking into a focused physical therapy program. Physical therapy can help to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion, all while targeting certain muscles. In addition to correcting problems from sports and overuse injuries, physical therapy can also address problems related to recovery from foot or ankle surgery. The regimen you will undergo for your foot and ankle injury will depend on your specific problem and your doctor’s recommendations.
