Foot & Ankle Pain

The foot and ankle complex is an engineering marvel. During walking or running, the foot must dynamically balance and adapt as the foot connects with the ground, and then rapidly stabilize for the push off phase of gait. During running, the body lands with five times its weight and the demands on this system increase even more. A physical therapist will consider all the variables related to the foot and ankle, including the knee, hip and pelvis. Shoes and orthotics also play a role in how stress is dispersed, adding yet another component to the assessment process. At Premier Physical Therapy of the Upstate, we will closely evaluate and treat your foot and ankle issue as well as address other factors that may be contributing to the problem.
