Ankle and foot treatment in St. Peters, MO

Treating Feet and Ankles

Ankle and foot pain is never something to take lightly. Without the use of your ankle or foot, you’ll find it difficult to walk, run or jump. This makes living a daily life challenging and is especially hard on athletes who can’t participate in sports with a hurt ankle or foot.

Ankle and foot pain is often the sign of a condition, such as a sprain, that can grow worse without treatment. An injury that heals incorrectly can result in permanent disability. Many people with ankle and feet injuries can avoid this kind of situation and experience a better recovery by visiting a physical therapist for treatment.

What are some common types of ankle and foot pain?

Our physical therapists at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy in St. Peters, Missouri see people for all kinds of ankle pain. Our team can determine the cause of your pain and develop a personalized treatment to help reduce your pain and restore the function of your ankle or foot.

Many of the reasons people come in for ankle and foot pain treatment include:

  • Sprains The connective tissues in your foot or ankle can stretch or tear, which is known as a sprain.
  • Fractures There are many bones in the feet and ankles that can be broken in an accident or due to conditions like osteoporosis.
  • Arthritis Arthritis causes the cartilage in your bones and joints to wear down. This causes pain and limits the mobility of joints like your ankles or toes.
  • Bursitis The bursae are tiny sacs of fluid that help cushion your joints. Bursitis is when these sacs become inflamed due to irritation. Bursitis can be quite painful and limits the use of your affected joint.
