Foot and Ankle

The foot and ankle play an important role in weight bearing and force distribution. An injury in this area is a common complaint and can be debilitating as it can restrict your ability to walk, run and move.

Optimal movement of the foot and ankle is essential for not only walking but for normal movement throughout the body. A restriction within the foot can have effect on the hip, lower back and even the neck and shoulder.
