An ankle fusion is a surgery that fuses the bones in your ankle into one. This surgery is usually indicated with individuals who have extreme pain from arthritis in the ankle.
Following your surgery, you will have reduced range of motion in the ankle joint. A physical therapist can work with you to help you relearn how to perform daily activities in a safe and efficient manner.
They may also have you perform strength exercises, develop a personalized home exercise program, and participate in activity-specific training to help you return to your previous lifestyle.
Your treatment may include:
Relearn daily activities
Activity specific tasks
Create a home exercise program
At Apex, your physical therapist will assess your body after surgery and work with you to create a treatment plan that best suits your individual goals and needs.
