Increase Joint Stability with Physical Therapy

If you suffer from instability in key joints like your ankles, knees, or hips, you have an increased risk for falls and accidents, as well as the injuries that come with them. Reduce your risk of injuries from slips, trips, stumbles, and falls by building strength and stability in your joints.

At Town Center Foot & Ankle, our team of podiatry experts, led by Dr. Stephen Eichelsdorfer, can help you put together a physical therapy plan to stabilize and strengthen key joints in your body. Dr. Ike provides physical therapy support to new and existing patients from offices in Kingwood and Atascocita, Texas.

How physical therapy can help

Whether you’ve recently suffered an injury and want to come back stronger than ever, or you want to limit your risk for injuries in the future, with physical therapy you can move freely without fear of falls or limiting chronic pain symptoms.

We often recommend physical therapy for sports and other injuries. PT can also improve targeted areas of balance, strength, flexibility, range of motion, and control. Many of our patients with chronic conditions like arthritis, peripheral neuropathy, and fibromyalgia benefit from physical therapy.

With PT, we help you decrease pain and inflammation in weak or damaged joints and increase joint stability by improving the health and strength of the muscles and ligaments in the surrounding area.

Putting together your plan

Restore proper alignment and prevent stiffening in your joints through a physical therapy plan. Depending on your treatment needs, your PT plan at Town Center Foot & Ankle might include:

The number and frequency of sessions you need depends on your condition. Most of our patients come in 2-3 times weekly for at least a month. When you’re halfway through your planned program, we evaluate your progress and recommend changes at that point.

What to expect at a session

No two physical therapy plans, or physical therapy sessions, are exactly the same. We take your current condition into account each time you come in for supervised PT and can assist you in tailoring your sessions to your healing pace.

After a PT session, we send you home with a detailed list of activities and exercises to keep up in the days before your next in-office appointment. To fully benefit from physical therapy, you must complete your program.

With our team at Town Center Foot & Ankle, you can do it and enjoy increased joint stability and balance in years to come. To learn more about our physical therapy programs, request your evaluation now. You can request an appointment online, or call now to schedule.
