Do you need physical therapy for a broken ankle?

May18th 2020

Most ankle fractures and sprains benefit from physical therapy to assure that normal motion, balance and control of movement is regained in the ankle and rest of the leg.  People may resume normal walking and even sporting activities but still lack full motion, stability, control and strength, resulting in slight changes in movement that can lead to pain or injuries in the future.

Because a faster reaction to treatment can cause a faster recovery, it is best to contact us right away to determine if physical therapy is right for you.
