Common Causes of Ankle and Foot Pain

Our skilled therapists are experienced in addressing a range of conditions that contribute to ankle and foot pain, including:

Plantar Fasciitis:

  • Plantar fasciitis is a common condition characterized by pain and inflammation in the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that supports the arch of the foot.
  • It often results from repetitive strain, improper foot mechanics, or inadequate footwear.
  • Our comprehensive treatment approach aims to reduce pain, improve foot mechanics, and promote healing of the plantar fascia.

Ankle Sprains and Instability:

  • Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments supporting the ankle are stretched or torn, leading to pain, swelling, and instability.
  • If left untreated, chronic ankle instability may develop, increasing the risk of recurrent sprains.
  • Our specialized rehabilitation programs focus on restoring ankle stability, improving range of motion, and preventing future injuries.

Achilles Tendonitis/Tendonosis:

  • Achilles tendonitis or tendonosis involves degeneration of the Achilles tendon causing pain and stiffness in the back of the ankle.
  • It commonly results from overuse, tight calf muscles, or biomechanical abnormalities.
  • Our targeted treatment includes eccentric exercises, manual techniques, and gradual load progression to optimize tendon healing and improve function.

Shin Splints:

  • Shin splints refer to pain along the shinbone (tibia) caused by overuse, repetitive impact, or inadequate training techniques.
  • Common among runners and athletes engaging in high-impact activities, shin splints can be debilitating if not addressed.
  • Our comprehensive approach focuses on reducing pain, improving lower leg biomechanics, and implementing appropriate training modifications to prevent recurrence.
