At Upright Athlete, we understand the impact a foot or ankle injury may have on your daily function. We believe that foot and ankle pain should be assessed in an individualized context. We understand the deep connection between the foot and ankle with the rest of the body and aim to be proactive in our treatments.
Every physical therapy evaluation includes a comprehensive lower extremity and back assessment to determine possible factors that may be contributing to our patients symptoms.
Our physical therapists have extensive knowledge on gait and running mechanics and can make recommendations to improve mechanics. We also offer shoe and orthotic recommendations. We utilize best evidence and our clinical expertise to develop individualized treatment plans for each patient. Our goal is to work with our patients to help get them back to the activities they enjoy and help prevent future injuries.
