Common Questions About Foot & Ankle Physiotherapy
What types of ankle and foot conditions can physiotherapy treat?
Physiotherapy can effectively address various conditions affecting the ankles and feet, such as sprains, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, bunions, and post-operative care for surgeries like ankle reconstruction. Each treatment is tailored to the specific needs of the patient and the nature of their condition.
How does physiotherapy help with foot and ankle injuries?
Physiotherapy helps recover foot and ankle injuries by reducing pain and swelling, improving range of motion, and increasing strength and stability in the affected area. Treatment methods may include stretching and strengthening exercises, manual therapy, balance training, and modalities such as ultrasound or heat therapy.
What should I expect during my first physiotherapy session for an ankle or foot injury?
In your first session, the physiotherapist will assess your injury by examining your foot and ankle, reviewing your medical history, and discussing your symptoms and lifestyle. This assessment helps create a personalized treatment plan, which may start with basic exercises or pain management techniques.
How long does it typically take to recover from foot or ankle injuries with physiotherapy?
The recovery time can vary depending on the severity of the injury and the individual’s response to treatment. Some patients may see improvement in a few weeks, while more severe injuries might require several months of therapy. Consistency in attending therapy sessions and performing prescribed exercises at home is key to a successful recovery.
