Physical Therapy

Physical therapy can often help decrease the pain and swelling in a painful area of the foot or ankle. Such problems as heel spurs, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, bunions, corns and calluses – and post-operative surgical conditions – often respond well to physical therapy.

Common kinds of physical therapy may include hot packs, massage, electrical stimulation, ultra sound, paraffin baths, and diathermy to relieve pain and swelling and to increase range of motion.
