no therapy is for arthritus and back pain

I am sorry, I cannot phone you but I am writing you the answer here.

If ankle pain is mild, you may go ahead with physical therapy. That would help in ankle pain too.

If pain is moderate to severe, you may reschedule it.

It is privilege assisting you.

Please let me know if you have further queries or unanswered questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
