Foot & Ankle Therapy
We’ll get you back on your feet in no time
Goodbye foot and ankle pain
Improper shoes, trauma, injury, and repetitive overuse can result in pain, making daily tasks difficult. Physical therapy on your foot, knee or ankle can often help. Our assessment may include gait (walking) analysis, posture analysis, balance tests, range of motion & flexibility, and strength. We have a Biocorrect Certified Healthcare Professional in each of our offices so you can get fitted for custom orthotics right here.

Feeling good on her feet!
“I’ve struggled with plantar fasciitis for over three years and finally asked my foot specialist for physical therapy with the hopes of relieving my pain. After just three weeks of PT treatments I’m so pleased with how much my pain has improved. I’m now able to stand and walk on my foot! Thank you NPT, for your help with posture and body mechanics, and daily living stretches and exercises. I’m very happy with the treatments and everyone was so helpful!” – Nicole, Cedar Springs patient
