Foot & Ankle

Our physical therapists have the expertise and advanced equipment to help you return to your normal activities quickly, and they provide you with the knowledge you need to prevent future foot and ankle injuries.

Rehabilitation begins with a detailed history and evaluation of your foot and ankle, and may include a gait analysis to observe you as you walk, or in some cases, run. Your therapist will assess your range of motion—how far and in what directions you can move your foot and ankle—and perform tests to assess the strength, sensation and blood circulation in your foot and ankle. Special tests may be conducted to assess individual joints and ligaments, including a biomechanical assessment that can determine how the foot and ankle align.

Our treatment options include exercises for flexibility, stability, balance, strength, coordination and restoration of range of motion. We also offer therapeutic massages, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, traction and mobilization. These tools allow our team to create a rehabilitative program that is custom designed for your particular needs.

Once your physical therapy goals are met, your physical therapist will help you continue therapy on your own with a personalized home program.
