“Wishful Thinking That Your Foot & Ankle Pain Will Heal On Its Own Is Not A Viable Game Plan!”

“Wishful Thinking That Your Foot & Ankle Pain Will Heal On Its Own Is Not A Viable Game Plan!”

Foot & ankle pain is ONE of the most common complaints we deal with in our practice.

And they will NOT simply vanish on their own. We hear from patients on a daily basis who have gone to their primary physicians for help, only to be told to take some painkillers and “see how it goes”.

Instead of putting a proven neck pain treatment plan together, you start to believe your knee pain is just a part of your life you have to accept. Your new “normal”… STOP!

It may be time to come see us if you are experiencing any of the following foot and ankle pain signs or symptoms:

  • A lack of ankle mobility
  • Ankle Swelling or bruising
  • Pain with contraction
  • Warm to the touch
  • A visible bump in the heel area
  • Pain/Stiffness above the heel or behind the ankle
  • Pain on the bottom of the heel or in the arch of foot
  • Pain that increases over a period of months
  • Bunions are painful

Our Approach to Treating Foot & Ankle Pain

Our Approach to Treating Foot & Ankle Pain

  • The Gray Method™ An approach invented by our owner, Dr. Scott Gray. The premise behind everything focuses on pinpointing the original CAUSE of your injury, pain, or stiffness, rather than just addressing the symptoms.

  • Dry Needling Dry needling is an advanced technique that uses very small needles to puncture the skin around stiff muscles. This treatment is a safe and effective way to eliminate pain, muscle tension, stiffness, and muscle spasms.

  • Myofascial Release- A hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure and massage to the myofascial connective tissues. Your therapist will gently massage the myofascia and feel for stiff or tightened areas to eliminate pain and restore motion.

  • Patient Education Part of a physical therapist’s job is to educate a patient about ways to improve their condition at home, such as changing their habits or improving their posture while sitting, standing, or performing activities such as sports.

  • Taping- Physical therapists will know how to properly tape the muscles around your ankle or foot if your muscles are weak and unconditioned. Taping will help retrain the muscles around the ankle to optimally function.

  • Custom Foot Orthotics- Few people realize just how important proper foot alignment can be. Orthotics support the foot and reduce inflammation and even help with fixing not only your foot pain but knee pain as well!

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Foot & Ankle Treatments

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Foot & Ankle Treatments

The number one reason to see our plantar fasciitis experts is to get to the root cause of your plantar fasciitis and not just treatment of the symptoms like so many medical providers do.

That’s a great question. In all honesty, it depends on the severity of the case and other factors but the majority of clients see improvements in as little as a few sessions.

We have heard that same story!

In fact, we applaud you for being skeptical and unsure as most medical providers have no clue on how to treat plantar fasciitis.

The majority of medical providers will tell patients to rest, surgery is their only option, or to just take anti-inflammatories. Sure, some patients may get better but that’s NOT our approach.

Simply stated, the premise of our plantar fasciitis treatment plans include addressing the underlying cause rather than just the symptoms.

We offer an array of different treatments for plantar fasciitis but, to be honest, every plantar fasciitis case isn’t the same.

For instance, some patients get plantar fasciitis because their feet overpronate, while others get it from their arches being too high ( the opposite of flat feet).

Similarly, others may develop it from the tightness of their calf or from wearing the wrong shoes. Case in point, every plantar fasciitis case is different. We use our 3-step system called the Gray Method TM, which will help discern exactly what the clinician needs to work on to get you back in motion.

To answer the question, though, we offer the following conservative options for treatment of plantar fasciitis:

  • Stretching
  • Strengthening
  • Foot orthotics
  • Dry Needling
  • Myofascial release
  • Active Release Technique
  • Mobilization
  • Manipulation
  • Proper shoe education

Plantar fasciitis is a superficial tissue on the sole of the foot that can become inflamed or degraded and can cause pain on the bottom of the foot or heel.
