Foot and Ankle Pain

The foot has many functions: it assists in supporting our body weight and it propels our legs forward while we walk. It is a shock absorber and helps us keep our balance when we are navigating on uneven ground.

The foot is made up of twenty-six bones, thirty-three joints and is layered with more than 120 muscles, ligaments and nerves.

By comparison the ankle contains only three bones, however it supports most of a person’s weight while standing. With their complexity and multiple functions, the foot and ankle are susceptible to many types of overuse syndromes and injuries. Whether you’ve suffered an injury, or are in chronic foot and ankle pain, our physical therapists will work with your physician to evaluate and treat your condition.

Our individualized physical therapy for foot and ankle pain works to address the conditions that keep you from living your life to the fullest. By performing manual therapy techniques, therapeutic modalities, stretching/strengthening exercise, home taping technique instruction, or by making custom orthotics, our physical therapists will help you gain relief of your foot and ankle pain so that you can get back to the activities that you desire.

Here’s what some of our patients had to say...

I started PT after a car accident. The staff was extremely helpful not just with injuries from the accident, but also other issues that had been bothering me. They are very good at communicating problems and solutions and are friendly to boot. Can’t recommend enough.

five stars Kevin RET Patient

Attentive, responsive, pleasant in communication, knowledgeable staff. I got good results in a short time. Thankful to Dr. Andrew for useful information and for a program of exercises.

five stars Elena RET Patient

Doug Free, the manager at Mercer Island Physical Therapy, has a PhD in PT, and is an amazing diagnostic doctor who explains why a specific injury occurred. He also does fabulous work on your body. His entire staff is knowledgeable and excellent therapists. 

five stars Gary RET Patient

I saw Anne at 7 weeks post ulnar nerve transposition. I’ve made more progress in 1 week with her than I did in those first 7.  She is extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current research.  I’d feel very good about sending my family and friends her way!

five stars Holli RET Patient

Kelly is amazing! I felt very comfortable and she asked all of the right questions, was super friendly, and knows exactly how to help. I always leave feeling so much better, and confident that if I do my exercises, I will heal!

five stars Kelsey RET Patient

Michelle has been amazing to work with. She quickly diagnosed the root cause of the issues that continued to plague me after recovering from hip replacement surgery that other PT’s (different companies) could not. She listens, is creative, resourceful, and very knowledgeable. Everyone at the clinic is always very professional and interested in our progress.

five stars Conrac RET Patient

I have been going to Summit Therapy for a shoulder problem. I’ve made steady progress and have gotten much pain relief. The staff is very friendly and great to work with. I recently had a sudden problem of vertigo. My therapist knew exactly what to do and performed a treatment that stopped the dizziness.
