Problems with the ankles, such as ankle sprains or tendonitis, can put a damper on your lifestyle.
We know you’re in pain. We want to get you up and running again.
Though it might take a while to get back to 100%, there are many things physical therapy can help you with.
WHY DOES YOUR ANKLE HURT
The ankle is made of up three major bones and many ligaments that attach those bones. Ligaments are important in the stability and function of the foot. Very often ankle pain can be caused by an ankle sprain that stresses a ligament.
The most common ankle problem is the sprained ankle. This typically can happen when you roll your ankle. Swelling and bruising is the most frequent problem after you sprain your ankle. Depending on the severity of the sprain the swelling and tenderness may stay for a while.
Achilles tendonitis is another widespread problem in the ankle. This will cause pain and tenderness in the heel cord or where it attaches on the back of the heel bone. Walking and running can be uncomfortable.
