Ankle/Foot Pain Near Me in Lee's Summit, MO

Ankle and foot pain can cause discomfort or pain in the web of bones, ligaments, muscles, fascia, and tendons that support the ankle or foot. It can cause pain in any area from your toes to ankles, including heels and bottom of the foot. One of the most common causes of ankle pain is due to an ankle sprain. Sprained ankles occur when the foot exceeds its normal range of motion and as a result, the ligaments in the ankle joint excessively stretch or tear. Ankle pain and sprains are very common, especially for athletes and anyone who is on their feet for a long period of time.

One common cause of foot pain is plantar fasciitis. It is a form of foot pain that affects the heel and the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis can feel like a stabbing pain in your bottom of foot, making it very difficult to walk properly. Sometimes the pain is stronger in the morning when you take you’re a first few steps of the day and will often decrease as you walk around although pain accumulates as the day progresses. Other causes of ankle and foot pain can be developed by poorly fitting shoes, fracture, or trauma/injury. Physical therapy helps regain the range of motion impaired after an ankle ailment along with reducing pain, strengthening the muscles, stabilizing the ankle joint and ultimately helping the patient return to normal daily activity and sports.
