The foot is a complex appendage with many bones, muscles and ligaments that can be strained or injured through daily living or sports. We take for granted the importance of our feet until we have difficulty walking, running or standing.
Foot issues can be very painful and should be treated as soon as possible so they do not worsen. Some of the foot and ankle conditions we treat include:
- Foot and Ankle Nerve Impingements
- Achilles Tendon Tear
- Ankle Sprain
- Shin Splints and other Repetitive Strain Conditions
- Foot and Ankle Mobility Loss
- Plantar Fasciitis
When you come to Pinnacle Performance for foot or ankle issues, we do a thorough examination to determine the extent and area of the injury. Our approach to pain management is a recommended, minimally invasive approach with treatments that may include physical therapy, active release technique, acupuncture or chiropractic care.
We also offer custom foot orthotics to treat conditions resulting from misalignment and to relieve pressure on certain parts of the feet. Orthotics are simply custom made inserts that are placed in your shoes that correct misalignments and improve function.
Ankle injuries can be quite painful and take a long time to heal.The ankle is made up of 3 joints: the main talocrural joint, the subtalar and the inferior tibiofibular joints as well as ligaments and 3 bones. The ankle plays an important role in connecting the legs to the feet, providing balance and range of motion. A common ligament sprain is the anterior talofibular ligament or ATFL. We can examine your ankle, source of pain and current condition to prescribe effective health therapies to get you back on track sooner.
