Our Physical Therapy Services – Foot and Ankle

It is hard to ignore your ankle or foot when every step causes pain, climbing stairs becomes akin to climbing Mt. Everest, and running becomes a distant memory. It can be something as ‘simple’ as a sprained ankle from playing a sport or the chronic pain you feel every morning with the first few steps out of bed associated with Achilles tendinitis or Plantar Fasciitis. Or it can be something as complex as a ligament repair, fracture, or a talar dome lesion. Either way, pain in your ankle or foot can stop you in your tracks. Restoring function and returning to an active life style is your highest priority and that’s where foot and ankle physical therapy can help.

At your initial evaluation the staff at BeneFIT Physical Therapy will perform a detailed concise evaluation focusing on your current limitations, your goals, and will include examination of the factors–not only in your feet and ankles but throughout your legs, hip, and pelvis– that contributed to any imbalances you originally demonstrated that may have led to your injury. With this knowledge in hand the Physical Therapist will be able to accurately devise a detailed individualized plan of care aimed at improving your limitations, achieving your goals, abolishing your contributing factors, and allow you to return to your prior level of function without the fear of further injuring yourself.

It does not stop at your evaluation though, because as you progress through your ankle or foot rehabilitation we’ll make the appropriate adjustments to your physical therapy program to continually improve your mobility, balance, and limitations; all to help you get back to your normal life as soon as possible.
