Foot & Ankle Rehabilitation

Plantar fasciitis and ankle sprains are some of the most common injuries to the ankle and foot complex. Some individuals may experience chronic ankle instability following ankle sprains, so it is imperative to be assessed and receive a programme well suited to improve the balance and strength in the foot and ankle.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I strengthen ankle instability?

Ankle instability is a repetitive condition that occurs when there are recurring issues in the ankle and foot complex. To strengthen the ankle, it is crucial to follow a specific program based on lengthening and strengthening certain muscles, to ensure that the correct movement patterns are maintained and reduce the risk of repetitive strains.

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a common condition and is caused by the inflammation of the plantar fascia (tissue that connects from your heel bone to your toes). Symptoms of plantar fasciitis usually occur around the heel and arch of the foot and are often very painful. This condition is usually treated through a specific program which strengthens the opposing muscles around the foot and ankle to relieve the stress on the muscle tissue and reduce the pain and risk of inflammation.

Why has my ankle suddenly started hurting?

They can get inflamed from arthritis, excessive walking, high-heeled shoes, recent footwear changes, or starting workouts again after time off. Your ankle may feel stiff, tender, warm, and swollen. The best treatment is usually a combination of rest, ice, compression and elevation.
