Ankle and Foot Injuries & Pain

“A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.”
Chris Neville, PT, PhD

Your feet and your ankles are complex mechanical structures that must work together to function at their optimal levels. You have 26 bones and more than 100 ligaments, muscles, and tendons in your feet, foot, and ankle which can cause pain as a result of many different factors. Ankle sprains are perhaps most common, along with Achilles tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis. The ankle joint replacement surgery has less optimistic outcomes than hip or knee surgeries. Our goal is to treat the cause and get you back on your feet.

“About 1/3 of the 30 million youth that plays sports in the US will sustain an ankle sprain”
