Foot & Ankle Pain Treatment at
PhysioFit Physical Therapy & Wellness

Foot and ankle pain are common symptoms that often go poorly treated.
Physical therapy at PhysioFit can help through a variety of techniques.

Understanding Foot & Ankle Pain

Most heel pain is due to a condition called plantar fasciitis, inflammation and/or degeneration of the plantar fascia, a thick connective tissue running from the heel bone to the ball of the foot that helps maintain the arch of the foot and transmits your weight across the foot as you walk or run. Typically, symptoms are at their worst when you wake up in the morning.

Our team at PhysioFit Physical Therapy & Wellness can help you address this issue and find effective relief. Call us to schedule an appointment with a physical therapist and get started on your personalized foot and ankle pain treatment plan.
