The joints of the ankle and foot are extremely important. Together they provide the base that we stand or walk on as well as having a key role in determining the way force is transmitted through the kinetic chain up into the rest of the body. A common ailment, we see a lot of clients at our clinic for ankle physiotherapy in Colchester, Essex.
Issues or dysfunction in the foot or ankle can cause problems in more proximal joints and should always be considered as a potential contributor to knee, hip or back pain. It is important to restore a good range of motion, strength and re-educate balance mechanisms when rehabilitating the foot or ankle.
