Ankle Pain Relief with Health Loft Physical Therapy

The ankle and foot support your weight and are the foundation for your physical mobility. If you have been suffering from problems or pain in your feet or ankles, such as a sprained ankle,  the more immediately you address the issue the better. Left untreated, problems that begin in your feet can quickly progress to problems in the knee, hip, and lower back.

Individualized Physical Therapy for Ankle Pain Treatment:

Health Loft Physical Therapists in Chicago take the time to get to know you and create a personalized plan to help you overcome your foot and ankle pain.

Before beginning treatment, your PT will examine the mobility and strength of your feet, ankles, and lower legs in weight-bearing and non-weight bearing positions. Your doctor will use this information to customize a program to accomplish your goals.

What you can do on your own to help:

  • RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)
  • Perform Ankle Strengthening Exercises
  • Perform Ankle Balance/Proprioception Exercises
