Physiotherapist For Ankle Pain

At Benchmark Physiotherapy, we always look for the root cause of any pain instead of applying a band-aid solution, and our ankle physiotherapists in Sydney can help you. 

Ankle and foot joints endure repetitive loading and impact during everyday activities whether it be walking, running, or jumping. Ankle and foot pain can be due to a multitude of problems including impingement, tendonitis, and even ligament injuries. We will also perform a biomechanical assessment to isolate and correct poor lower limb alignment and foot posture. If required, we can also fit orthotics.

Our experienced ankle physiotherapists in Sydney will assess your ankles and develop a tailored plan to reduce your pain and improve mobility. Treatment plans may include targeted exercises, manual therapy, and dry needling. We also provide education about the cause of your pain so that you can learn how to prevent it from reoccurring.


Don’t wait till it’s too late, talk to one of our experienced ankle physios in Sydney today. 

What Are Common Causes of Ankle Pain?

A sprained ankle is the most common cause of ankle pain. Although our Sydney-based ankle physiotherapists treat and manage a lot of these, it’s not the only cause we see. Some common causes include:

  • Fractures
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis
  • Overuse injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis.

No matter what the cause of your ankle pain is, we can help you manage it and reduce your symptoms. Get in touch with our friendly ankle pain physiotherapists based in Sydney today!

Our online physiotherapy appointments are conducted via end-to-end encrypted video calls, similar to facetime or zoom. Through this call the physiotherapists will ask you questions about your pain, how it affects you throughout the day, and what movements you struggle with. They will also guide you through a series of exercises to test your mobility and strength.

After this comprehensive analysis, the physiotherapist will provide information on your injury (likely diagnosis) including education on how to best manage this injury. They will also provide rehab exercises to provide symptom relief and long term improvements.

This includes an individualized exercise program. Exercise programs are essential to long term relief and treating underlying conditions that will prevent recurrences of injuries.

Our aim is to make completing your exercise program as easy as possible. Upon commencement of your first appointment, you will be sent access to an app that will show your individual exercise program, allowing you to track completion of exercises and notes on each exercise. You can also use this app to send messages to your physiotherapist. Meaning you can get answers to questions as they occur.

Unlike traditional physiotherapy where you see a therapist a few times a week, you will have one formal session per week over video call. This session is a time for the physiotherapist to assess your injury progress, and work with you to increase the difficulty of your exercises. In-between sessions, you can message your physiotherapist and ask any questions that come up.

For many conditions, especially those where building strength and increasing mobility is a major factor for recovery, online physiotherapy can be just as effective as traditional physiotherapy.

If you love evidence and want to read up on the effectiveness of telehealth, there are a number of articles on this topic found here.

We always want to ensure that you are getting the treatment that you need. This is why we require a phone call with a physiotherapist to book your appointment. This allows us to know if your condition is right for online physiotherapy.

During this phone call, we will take payment over the phone and will book your initial appointment.

Since April 2021, private health insurance will provide rebates for online appointments. Please contact your insurer if you would like to take advantage of this.

High-quality internet and a device with a camera are both required for online appointments. You can use your laptop, tablet or mobile device.

We do recommend starting sessions with the device on a stable surface facing you to discuss your injury with the physiotherapist. You will also need a space where you can set the device 2 meters away, with room to move. This way, the physiotherapist can guide you through a series of exercises to assess your range of movement and strength.

Set up can be as simple as the tablet propped up against a box or on your table, in your living room. Just ensure the box/table is far enough away to capture most of your movements on the screen.
