Why Does My Foot Hurt? What’s Going On?

Nov 23, 2023 | FOOT PAIN | 0 comments

Why would someone who is 3 months post-fibular fracture get worse after a basic theraband ankle exercise? 

Not everyone needs inversion and eversion theraband exercises. 


This is an in-depth clinical discussion on understanding the “why” hidden in the patient narrative. 

And a specific process for assessing the whole foot, not just the ankle. 

We also discuss why this patient’s center of mass is biased toward her involved side and what implications this has for treatment.
