Foot Therapy

Foot Therapy

 

Our feet support our body weight. When they are painful, we are miserable. We need to be very observant of our feet as they can reflect our general health. We must not neglect them by wearing poor shoes, becoming heavy, not using our foot muscles and not stretching our leg muscles.

 

Our feet are complex structures. They are comprised of many small bones, joints and muscles. They are required to support and propel us through the world. They very often become very painful. Some of the conditions and surgical procedures commonly treated are:

 

  1. Bunions

  2. Plantar fasciitis

  3. Flat feet

  4. Sprained ankles

  5. Stress fractures

  6. Achilles tendinopathies / ruptures and repairs.

  7. Neuromas

  8. Metatarsal head pain

  9. Hammer toes

 

Non-surgical care:

 

Some of these conditions respond very well to orthotic intervention and exercises. If these painful conditions are allowed to persist, they become very difficult to treat with conservative care.

 

We will provide a complete analysis of your lower extremity function including gait analysis, muscle length and strength, range of motion and sensation testing. We will design a program specifically for your condition.

 

Education about your condition and how to continue to care for yourself with independent activities is the most important aspect of our therapy. You must know how to care for yourself!

 

We consider your age and other medical conditions when we consider your recovery progress.

 

Post-Surgical care:

 

Your surgeon will have a specific rehabilitation protocol which we will use as a guide to your recovery progression. These are time based to allow proper healing of the tissue.

 

Our therapist will perform ongoing analysis of your condition, including your gait pattern, range of motion, strength, stability and functional capacity, in addition to your surgeon’s guidelines, to determine your rate of progress. Education about your surgery and how to continue to care for yourself with independent activities is the most important aspect of our therapy. You must know how to care for yourself!

 

We consider your age and other medical conditions when we consider your recovery progress.
