Ankle surgery

The ankle joint or talocrural joint is formed from the articulation between the tibia and fibula and the talus bone. The ankle is a vital joint which is heavily involved in almost all movements in the lower limbs. Therefore any injury or condition at the ankle which requires surgery can be debilitating causing loss of independence, time off from work and down time from sporting activities. Physiotherapy aims to reduce the impact of ankle surgery by reducing pain and speeding up recovery.

Leeds Physiotherapy’s team of specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapists are experts at assessing and treating problems at the ankle. We are able to provide a comprehensive service which can include prehab designed to ensure you are in optimal shape prior to surgery. We can also offer rehab following your surgery to get back to your old self as soon as possible. Some of the more common types of ankle surgery we see at Leeds Physiotherapy include:

Leeds Physiotherapy has access to state of the art equipment to help with your recovery. We have access to hydrotherapy pool’s to get you walking again as soon as possible, electrotherapy and acupuncture to help with pain and gym facilities to ensure you leave in the best condition possible.

Iqbal, Leeds

"My physio explained what had happened, gave me a clear timetable for my recovery and gave me exercises designed to get me back to work as soon as possible."

Steve, Osmondthorpe

"My wife can now walk around the house with a stick, can use the stairs and is more able to do things herself. We feel it has been a great help as I don’t think I could have coped alone."
