The foot and ankle are made up of 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and tendons; all which work together to support the body. Foot and ankle injuries are extremely common, especially for athletes, due to the large number of structures, the ability to absorb forces many times the body weight and rigorous demand placed on the foot and ankle. For sprains, fractures, and other injuries- healing is only half the battle. It is important to work to regain strength and mobility through expert physical therapy care. At JAG Physical Therapy, we commonly treat a wide array of foot and ankle injuries, with the ultimate goal of getting our patients back to the highest level of mobility.
