Treating ankle pain with physical therapy in Winterville, NC

Ankle Pain

There are more than one hundred muscles, tendons and ligaments in the human ankle. These along with the dozens of bones and joints make the ankle one of the most complex musculoskeletal systems in the body. Ankles are also under considerable stress as they are relied on for nearly every physical movement we make. Consequently, ankle pain, injury and disease are common experiences affecting many adults every day in the United States. This type of pain is also associated with a surprising number of factors and causes. Whatever the cause of the symptoms, physical therapy is now available for ankle pain treatment in Winterville, North Carolina at Peak Performance. Our team provides a noninvasive approach which is tailored specifically to each patient we work with.

Beyond just the RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) method at home, there are a number of causes which necessitate more professional care.
