Foot & Ankle Pain Relief

Our feet and ankles are pivotal in keeping the rest of the body stable and mobile, as they absorb the impact of walking, running and jumping, and ensure that we can stand without putting unnecessary pressure on other muscles or joints. The feet contain almost a quarter of the body’s bones, as well as hundreds of connective ligaments and tendons. Combined with the complexity of the ankle joint, both are very susceptible to injury, with the ankle being the most commonly injured joint and a physiotherapist most common injury area.
