The ankle joints and feet are the link between your body and the ground. The ankle joint is made up of four bones shaped to make the joint stable while increased stability of the joint is provided by ligaments and tendons.
Ankle sprains, Achilles injuries, fractures and instability are just some of the injuries we commonly see in our clinic. Our physiotherapists will do a full subjective and objective assessment of your ankle considering a wide range of factors including referred pain from the low back, the mechanics of the whole lower limb and foot, strength and balance of the muscles surrounding the ankle, sporting technique, motor control, footwear and biomechanics.
With professional assessment and prompt treatment from your physiotherapist, many ankle injuries can be successfully treated completely within a few treatments.
Ankle and foot injuries we commonly treat include:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin splints
- Heel pain
- Sporting injuries
- Achilles tendinitis
- Ankle sprains
