Foot and ankle pains are common and affect many different populations, including children, older adults, and athletes. Research has demonstrated that ankle pain is experienced by up to 19% of people with arthritis and accounts for as much as 25% of all sports-related injuries. These injuries, while common, are also typically very responsive to physical therapy intervention. Better yet, a skilled physical therapist can help to train your body to become more resilient to injury for conditions such as ankle sprains, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis.
