Twisted ankle:

Ankle sprains can occur in sports, trauma, and even in normal every day life. They often have significant swelling and bruising. It will make weight bearing difficulty and range of motion guarded. Ankle sprains can damage the ligaments, tendons, and joints in the area.

Sometimes, bracing, taping, and even crutches are needed in ths early phase to let the area calm down. Usually, early return to protected motion through guided therapeutic exercises will accelerate healing. Modalities like Shockwave, ClassIV laser, Ultrasound, and Kineseo-Taping can all help stimulate healing. In chronic cases or severe cases that don’t heal, regenerative techniques like PRP or Stem Cell Therapy may be of great help.

Achilles tendonitis:

The large tendon behind the heel has a lot of stress on it any time you are up and moving. Over time, strain can cause the tendon to break down, and become inflamed and painful. This can be accompanied with a bursitis and even a tear. The tendon is not well supplied with blod, so healing is slow. The pain will be with standing, walking, and pushing off.

Modalities like Shockwave, ClassIV laser, Ultrasound, deep tissue myofascial release, Kineseo-Taping can all help stimulate healing. Therapeutic exercises to help with range of motion and strength is essential to healing. Physical therapy to help restore function to the muscles in the area can help heal the tendon, as well. In some cases, when the healing is not occurring as well as it should, regenerative techniques like PRP or Stem Cell Therapy may be of great help.

Plantar Fasciitis:

There is a tight band of fascia and muscles under the arch of the foot. These can get very inflamed and cause severe pain when walking barefoot, or during the first few minutes of walking after being at rest. This can be a repetitive issue or from one time overuse.

Modalities like Shockwave, ClassIV laser, Ultrasound, deep tissue myofascial release, Kineseo-Taping can all help stimulate healing. Therapeutic exercises to help with range of motion and strength is essential to healing. Physical therapy to help restore function to the muscles in the area can help heal the area, as well. In some cases, when the healing is not occurring as well as it should, regenerative techniques like PRP or Stem Cell Therapy may be of great help.

Heel Spurs:

Heel spurs are often the cause of tight muscles pulling on the heel bone either from under the foot or from the Achilles behind the heel. This can cause intermittent or constant pain depending on the severity. The pain can make wearing certain foot wear painful, and cause pain during and after using the foot a lot.

Modalities like Shockwave and ClassIV laser can help reduce the pain from the spur and in some cases reduce the spur itself. Therapeutic exercises to help with range of motion and strength is essential to healing. Custom orthotics may be needed to normalize the force on the foot/heel to prevent future recurrences.
