This will include therapeutic exercises targeted at your ankle, foot, and lower leg to relieve pain and strengthen the area. Depending on your condition, your physical therapist will also include specialized treatments that will help improve your condition and make you live comfortably without pain.
What’s Causing My Foot and Ankle Pain?
The bones, ligaments, muscles, and tendons of the ankle and foot must work together in harmony to function optimally. Anything that disrupts this harmony puts pressure on the ankle and foot and results in pain. There are several causes of ankle and foot pain. Common ones include:

Achilles tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis occurs when the Achilles tendon becomes inflamed.

Achilles tendon rupture

The tendon that connects your calf muscles to your heel bone gets torn. This could be partial or complete.


A sprain occurs when a ligament is overstretched or torn. A strain occurs when a muscle or tendon is torn or stretched too far.


When a fracture occurs in the foot or ankle, it means that a bone is broken.

Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis occurs when the ligament lying at the bottom of your foot becomes inflamed. This is usually due to overuse.


This is an inflammation of the bursae. Bursas are thin fluid-filled sac that helps to reduce friction within a joint.
