The Importance of Ankle Balance

How to Stay on your Feet with Apex Physical Therapy

Life without balance is like a seesaw without a seat… looks like a lot of fun, but eventually, you will have a toe-curling outcome. This analogy applies to many aspects of life, and it’s especially true when it comes to your ankles.

Your ankles are an essential part of your body that keeps you upright and helps you to move gracefully and efficiently. Any disruption in their balance can spell trouble for your body’s overall stability, movement, and even capability. When it comes to having strong and healthy ankles, Apex Physical Therapy is here to help you keep your feet on the ground.

With the help of Apex Physical Therapy, you can both prevent ankle injuries and also rehabilitate from ones you do sustain. A physical therapist from Apex can help you evaluate your risk factors and develop an individualized plan to improve your ankles’ balance. Whether this means performing specific exercises such as resistance training, plyometrics, and balance training, or paying special attention to injury prevention during activities, Apex Physical Therapy is here to provide guidance.

Not only is mitigating ankle injuries important for maintaining the stability of your movement capabilities, it can also prevent pain. A strong and balanced ankle offers support to the entire lower extremity, so any disruption can mean an onslaught of issues in other areas of the body, such as the hips, calves, and back.

Additionally, if you’ve recently suffered a setback with your ankle, Apex Physical Therapy can help to reduce pain and restore your ankle to full functionality. This can include activities such as strength training, flexibility work, and range of motion exercises. Your Apex Physical Therapist may also prescribe braces, orthotics (arch supports for the feet), or even a walking cane (for some select cases).

Seek help for better ankle care

Given the importance of ankle balance, it’s no wonder why Apex Physical Therapy is essential for any athlete or non-athlete alike. Your ankles are one of the most important factors in keeping you upright and balanced. Without them, you’d take a tumble quicker than you can say “Apex Physical Therapy!” And there’d certainly be less humor in the world!

So, the next time you’re in need of ankle balance help, make sure to call on Apex Physical Therapy to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground.
