Ankle Pain: Understanding and Overcoming Discomfort

Understanding Foot and Ankle Pain: What Triggers It?

Foot and ankle discomfort, such as a sprained ankle or Achilles pain, can significantly hinder your ability to move and enjoy life fully. These issues often result from injuries or excessive use, affecting the intricate interplay of bones, muscles, and ligaments in these regions.

Signs of Foot and Ankle Pain You Might Encounter

Indications may encompass pain, swelling, challenges in walking, and diminished weight-bearing capability. Chronic problems like tendinopathies, particularly prevalent in the Achilles tendon, can develop due to repetitive strain or a specific injury event.

After the first visit with Cat I felt confident in her diagnosis. Videoing me on treadmill to help identify the root cause of my problem and giving me specific exercises to strengthen weaknesses. Her hands on approach really helped release some muscles that overtime had been so tight they where causing a lot of pain. Massive relief to finally feel pain free. Thank you!

I have been having problems with my feet since 2016. Decided to try a private physio to see if they could help. After my assessment with Cat, she contacted my GP and arranged for an x-ray and blood tests. It turns out I have gout and tendon problems. Cat has given me exercises to help with the tendon problems and the GP is helping with the gout. Cat was a great help and everyone there is very friendly. Highly recommended.

Sent my son to West Kirby Physiotherapy after a year of him suffering pain in his legs after doing sports. He was diagnosed within 10 mins of his consultation and the physiotherapist was amazing, making him feel comfortable and at ease. We were given a personal physiotherapy program to follow, with lots of advice and a follow up appointment. Since following the program, there has been a significant improvement in my son's mobility and the pain has almost completely vanished.
