Foot & Ankle Surgery

Typically foot and ankle surgeries are related to fractures. There are cases where ligament reconstruction or arthroscopy may be required, however usually surgeries in this area of the body are as a result of a traumatic incident (e.g. contact injury or vehicle accident).

Foot & ankle surgeries require lengthy rehabilitation. You are often non-weight bearing or partial weight-bearing for a period of time, so may require use of mobility aids (e.g. crutches). This will usually be outlined by your surgeon, who will determine what type of surgery you require.

Physiotherapy for foot and ankle surgery is very important. If you do not restore your range of motion, muscle strength and motor control, you can be left with ongoing issues that can be problematic in the long run.

If you require Physiotherapy for foot or ankle surgery, book an appointment with one of our Physiotherapy team.
