Pain Free Movement
Hobbies are hard to enjoy when you have to deal with sharp pain within your feet and ankle. Perhaps you landed wrong when you dove for that tennis ball, or maybe hiking left you with a sprained ankle? You don’t have to live with pain! At Pinnacle Physical Therapy, your pain will be treated at the source without surgery or medication!
How Can We Help?
To treat your foot and ankle pain, Pinnacle Physical Therapy will first conduct a full body evaluation to determine the root cause of your pain and develop a treatment to solve that pain.
Get a Full Body Evaluation
Get started on your foot and ankle care by scheduling a full body evaluation! Your PT will take a thorough history, analyze your movements, and educate you on their findings to create a holistic healing plan for you. We look at your whole body because there is research that shows impairments above your foot and ankle in your knee and hip can also be contributing to your pain and limitation.
Understanding Your Foot and Ankle Pain
Before starting treatment, our physical therapists will conduct a full evaluation and get your medical history to design a care plan that’s personalized to you.
Treating Your Foot and Ankle Pain
Our physical therapy team will work with you on personalized exercises, stretches, and manual therapy to help relieve pain and begin the healing process.
To help speed up recovery, your physical therapist will create an at-home plan of exercises and stretches to supplement your clinic visits.
Common Foot & Ankle Conditions
Calf Muscle Strain
Calf muscle strains occur when the muscles in the back of your lower leg become overstretched or overworked. The calf muscle tends to feel tender and tight with a strain.
Ankle sprains usually happen when the ankle is rolled or twisted the wrong way. The ankle will feel extremely tender and may bruise or swell.
Plantar Fasciitis occurs when the tissue connecting the heel to the toes becomes inflamed. Pain typically includes a stabbing sensation near the heel.
Achilles tendinopathy happens when an injury is sustained to the tendon connecting the heel bone and calf muscle. Heel pain and tenderness in the area are the biggest symptoms.
Our Relieved Clients
“Dr. Murphy was able to quickly identify the issues, and used a variety of techniques to restore function, improve mobility, and relieve pain in a matter of weeks.”
“I highly recommend Dr. Murphy because his treatment was effective, and his concern was genuine. My son’s sports-related injury (fractured ankle) left him with limited mobility and pain after months of wearing a boot and being on crutches. Dr. Murphy was able to quickly identify the issues, and used a variety of techniques to restore function, improve mobility, and relieve pain in a matter of weeks. He is very personable, and really listened to our concerns about preventing any permanent physical disability since my son loves sports. We were extremely satisfied with his care, and will use him again should the need arise!”
