injury ankle and foot painAnkle and foot pain can generally be characterised as acute (short term) or chronic. Acute foot and ankle injuries usually occur during running, walking, during sport, or as a result of tripping or falling from a height.

Chronic ankle and foot pain can be as a result of inadequately treated acute injury or poor body mechanics. Ankle/Foot problems can lead to pain, stiffness, weakness, reduced balance and inability to perform your normal activities.
Physiotherapy can help by taking a precise history, examining the area thoroughly, obtaining a diagnosis and treating the problem. This may involve hands on therapy, soft tissue work, exercises, taping, and balance retraining.
