Ankle Pain

Don’t Let Ankle Pain Drag You Down

Typical Symptoms

Ankle injuries can be a real pain, literally and figuratively.  Not only can they lay you up or make you hobble around, they may cause you to banish your favorite pair of stilettos to the closet or cancel that game of touch football that you had planned for the weekend. Ankle pain can significantly limit a person’s ability to participate in everyday activities along with recreational and workplace activities.

If you are currently in pain and suffering from an ankle injury, it is important that you know the facts about this sensitive area.  After all, if your ankle injury is not given the proper attention and healed completely, you run the risk of it occurring again.

Hear what our patients are saying:

I had a very positive experience~ This was my first time in my 73 years that I had Physical Therapy. I hurt my ankle and the Orthopedic doctor said there may be a tendon injured. The swelling was severe and it was painful. Several months later it was not better so I requested physical therapy on advice of a friend. I am very disappointed that doctors don’t recommend it first but instead suggested shots. I am convinced that exercise of the body in the right way is the key to healing and maintaining health in many instances. I can hike again and plan to do my next half marathon (walking) in January. I plan to be diligent about training. — Carol G.

Ankle pain can be treated a number of different ways, depending on the type of injury, pain and individual such as age, weight, type of work and recreational activities.
