We are so excited to share the news that our brand new Jefferson office has a space dedicated to physical therapy! Physical therapy may not be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to taking care of your feet, but it is a valuable form of treatment that can make a big difference in your healing. Whether you are recovering from foot surgery or a foot injury, or you want to reduce the chances of needing surgery, our highly-qualified physical therapists can help you regain strength, heal, and reduce pain.
What is physical therapy?
Physical therapists are licensed professionals who are highly trained in body function to help patients with rehabilitation, pain reduction, and enhancement of their mobility, flexibility, and strength. Each patient is provided with an individualized treatment plan to address their foot and ankle issue, including ankle sprains, bunions, heel pain, flat feet, ankle instability, tendinitis, and wound care.
At Kentucky / Indiana Foot and Ankle Specialists, our physical therapists have extensive experience helping patients improve their foot and ankle health.
We provide a wide range of physical therapy treatments:
- Manual Therapy
- Electrical Stimulation
- Infra-Red Laser
- Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization
- Neuromuscular Re-Education
- Gait Training
- Therapeutic Exercise
- Nerve Conduction Studies
Depending on your foot and ankle issue, our physical therapists may prescribe strengthening or stretching exercises, perform manual therapy, use technologies like electrical stimulation, lasers, or perform nerve conduction studies to assess and treat your condition.
While some patients use physical therapy to get back on their feet after an injury or surgery, others use it as a preventative measure to maintain good foot health and prevent recurring injuries. Often, it can be used to avoid more aggressive treatments like surgery.
