How can a virtual physical therapist help with my inside ankle pain?
Virtual physical therapists offer the same attention and quality of care in the comfort of your home as they do when they see you in a clinic.

Seeing a virtual physical therapist for your inside ankle pain can benefit you in the following ways:
- Identifying the source of your pain — Your virtual physical therapist can determine the reason for your inside ankle pain by listening to what you have to say about your pain levels, asking you questions about your condition and monitoring your movements. This helps them formulate a physical therapy plan specially suited to your needs.
- Guided therapeutic exercises — From the comfort and convenience of your home, your virtual physical therapist can guide you through exercises and stretches intended to reduce your inside ankle pain, increase your mobility and promote healing in the injured area. They can also instruct you on simple exercises that you can do on your own without risking further injury.
- Gait training — Gait training is used to help you regain the ability to walk on your painful ankle while it heals. It also helps you learn good posture and walking technique to prevent injury in the future. Your virtual physical therapist can guide you through gait training in your own home, so that you can get back to doing the things you enjoy sooner.
