Your physiotherapist may also use other methods such as manual therapy, taping or acupuncture alongside exercise to aid with pain relief and function. Your physiotherapist will stress the importance of continuing with certain exercises during your care, but also once you have been discharged, as in some instances foot and ankle pain can take several months to fully resolve.
