Foot & Ankle Pain

Are You Experiencing Difficulty In Walking, Running, Jumping, Descending Stairs, Or Carrying Out Your Regular Work Or Household Tasks Due To Pain In Your Ankle Or Foot?

Do any of the following scenarios resonate with you?
We Are Here To Help You Find Long-Term Solutions!
Here are some common ankle/foot conditions that we specialize in treating:
Common Causes:
  1. Impaired Mechanics: Reduced joint flexibility, muscle stiffness, muscle imbalances, and impaired posture leading to limited range of motion and decreased function.

  2. Injury: Sudden impact or excessive load placed on the tissues, resulting in damage and pain.

  3. Chronic Compensations: Previous injuries or fear of future injuries causing avoidance of certain muscle groups and overuse of other tissues, leading to imbalances and ongoing pain.

Dimensions Physical Therapy Approach:

  1. Breaking the Pain Cycle: Providing education, manual therapy techniques, and improving tissue mobility to alleviate pain and discomfort.
  2. Enhancing Mechanics: Improving the mechanics of joints, muscles, and nerves during daily functional tasks, exercise, and sport-specific activities.
  3. Tissue Loading: Gradually increasing strength, power, and endurance through appropriate loading strategies, ensuring that the tissues are well-prepared for the demands placed upon them and reducing the fear of re-injury.

Ankle and Foot-Specific Treatments:

Important Points to Understand

  1. Tissue Heal: The body has a natural healing process, but sometimes it needs assistance transitioning from the inflammatory phase to the recovery phase of tissue repair.

  2. Pain and Imaging Correlation: The true source of pain may not always align with imaging results. Tissue damage seen on X-rays or MRIs may not necessarily cause pain or functional limitations. In contrast, pain can be present without visible findings on imaging, often due to nervous tissue sensitivity.

  3. Soreness and Strength Gains: Soreness after exercise is not the ultimate goal but is not always a cause for concern. The body requires an overload that can cause tissue micro-damage to build strength. As the tissue recovers, it becomes thicker and stronger. Monitoring soreness can help determine if the tissue is ready for increased load, should maintain the current level, or should reduce training intensity until the tissue is better prepared.

  4. Return to Activities: With proper education, appropriate mechanics, and progressive tissue loading, it is typically possible to return to previous or desired activities. These factors play a crucial role in facilitating a successful return and minimizing re-injury risk.
