Ankle Pain Treatment Option: Physical Therapy

The main goals of physical therapy for conditions like ankle arthritis are to improve muscle strength, reduce stiffness, and reduce pain. Increasing muscle strength will allow the muscles to protect the joint by reducing strain on the joint. Maintaining flexibility and motion at the joint can prevent stiffness and pain. There are many modalities that a physical therapist can use to help reduce pain and inflammation in the affected joint. In cases of ankle instability, the tendons are strengthened and proprioception exercises are used to stabilize the ankle. Through a combined exclusive ankle rehabilitation protocol, our organization has been able to innovate many exercises used throughout the world for ankle balance and stability.
