Injuries in the ankle and foot region can significantly restrict your capacity to participate in everyday activities.
Acute injuries such as ankle ligament sprains are common and will often respond rapidly to basic first aid, such as ice and rest, but any injury that is not resolving by following first aid principles should be assessed to ensure that a more serious issue has not developed.
At Bulleen Physiotherapy Centre our ankle physiotherapy service can provide assessment and treatment for any of the following conditions:
- Achilles tendinopathy – characterised by pain and swelling of the Achilles tendon
- Plantar fasciitis – characterised by pain at the front of the heel pad and into the arch of the foot
- Stress fractures – characterised by intense localised pain with direct contact with the fracture site
- Tibialis posterior tendinopathy – characterised by pain on the inside of the ankle and/or the arch of the foot
Ankle injuries that are not fully rehabilitated can lead to chronic instability and recurring ankle sprains and can restrict your activity level and quality of life. By undergoing ankle physiotherapy with our skilled team here at Bulleen Physiotherapy Centre you can regain your mobility and your confidence to lead an active life.
