Introduction to Foot

Physical Therapy in Congress Park, Denver Downtown, Central Park, and Highlands Area for Foot

 

Welcome to Atlas Physical Therapy's patient resource about Physical Therapy for the foot.

The foot can be the home of many problems, all of them uncomfortable and tough to deal with.  We can help you deal and recover from stress fractures, pulled muscles, torn ligaments and warts. . . . well, not the warts, we don't do warts. . . . however, we will be there for you when it comes to the other problems!

It is time for you to wake up and jump out of bed, landing with both feet firmly and comfortably on the ground.  Don't suffer another day with a foot problem that can be remedied through the information that we provide in this section of our site or through the assistance that our company can provide to you!

You deserve to be able to place one foot firmly in front of the other as you confidently walk from our office and we are looking forward to helping you!

By far the best physical therapists I have ever gone to! Alex and Kate have fixed everything that has come up from foot issues, to knee problems to all the tiny little things that happen during training or just life in general. Lexi and Emma are awesome at making sure im doing exercises correctly and making it fun at the same time. With the help of everyone at Atlas Physical Therapy I was able to complete my first ultramarathon and look forward to completing many other ridiculous goals.

Hey! I’ve been working with Alex Lanton following two surgeries on my foot. He’s so smart, fun, and effective. I would never go anywhere else for my PT needs.

I had been referred to Alex at Atlas by several different people, but it ended up being my daughter's plantar fasciitis that finally got us in there. He did absolutely great with her really does well with kids. I don't have any acute injuries at this point, but while I was in there with her, I asked about various ongoing issues/problem areas I have, and ended up beginning treatment with him as well. He takes a well rounded and very practical approach that for us has included tissue work (both), dry needling (me), ultrasound (her), adjustments (me), and obviously various exercises and stretches. The rest of the staff there is great as well. Highly recommend.

I am a runner and runners sometimes get hurt! Alex has magic hands. The man has helped me get through plantar fasciitis on both feet, hip and knee issues and a pulled hamstring! All while keeping it fun and just being an amazing coach. If something ails you- go see him! He has magic hands and will get you back on track in no time

I’ve been going to Atlas for a couple of months to work on some issues with my peroneal and Achilles, and I’ve been thoroughly impressed with every single person who works at Atlas. I’ve worked with at least 5 people here, and they have all been knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, caring and cool. They remember who I am every time I come back, have been great at listening and helping with my recovery, and I quite honestly look forward to each visit. I’ve been getting dry needling done lately, and I was pretty afraid since I hate needles. Both Kate and Amanda have done an excellent job however with minimal discomfort and great results afterwards. I’m happy to have discovered Atlas, and I’ve been recommending it to friends and family.

Amazing place, awesome team! I broke my ankle in January and had surgery a day later. About 7 weeks after that, I started physical therapy at Atlas and I could not have been happier. I was ’assigned’ to work with Kate as my PT and she was fantastic. She worked closely with me on movement, strengthening, massaging and flexibility in order to getting me back to my normal self and activities. At times, I even felt bad for her, because I am very ticklish so working on my foot wasn’t always the easiest thing for her, but she took it like a champ; she even did a great job of distracting me in order for her to work on my ankle issues. The exercises I was instructed to do were super helpful, and I was able to do them both at home and at the facility (along with many more when I was there). I loved how I was able to work with multiple staff members while working out my ankle and everyone pushed me to keep going and never made me feel bad if I wasn’t able to complete something, but rather said it was okay and we would try again the next time I came in.  No matter the time of day or how busy they were, everyone said hello to you, by name, when you walked in making you feel very welcomed. Although I have recently graduated, I will sporadically go back so I can have Kate continue to help me recover, get new exercises for strength, and to just say hello to the staff.  I could not be more happy with my recovery and the awesome people at Atlas who helped make it happen.

Andrea and Nate are a superb team. From my ankles to my neck and everything in between they helped me out. Early morning to late in the afternoon scheduling was always convenient for my very inconvenient schedule. They always went out of their way to treat all issues. Never had a bad day with them, and would recommend them to anyone!

I needed PT after an ankle fracture that greatly diminished my mobility, where even after the fracture healed and was able to stand on the injured foot, I was still in pain; everyone I spoke to was really kind and helpful. Nikhil was able to help me get back to moving without needing any aids or other support much faster than I expected, to the point where I am now able to go on hikes (with some precautions, of course) and stand for long periods of time without pain.

Laura has been a godsend for me and has helped put me back together more than once! I came in when I was pregnant for a hip issues, then post pregnancy for a foot issue. Both situations I was treated wonderfully by the administrative staff and the physical therapist. The new location is key, parking is ample. The are communicative, timely and most importantly, work wonders on what ails you!

I tore a ligament in my ankle and Atlas was amazing both mentally and physically as I got back to my active lifestyle. Can’t say enough good thing about my experience and would recommend to anyone.

I am really grateful to Alex and his crew, they helped me with an ankle injury and my back issues.  He helped strengthen and rehabilitate my ankle, while leaving me feeling like he was really invested in my recovery.  When we had reached a point where I was still having some pain but he had done all that he could, he didn’t just keep taking my money,  he made a suggestion for a doctor that might be able to help me further.  I recommend them regularly and will be back with any future injuries.

I’ve struggled for seven years with ankle pain since tearing a ligament, and also developed really bad runner’s knee while training for my first half marathon last year.  The only other time I’d been to physical therapy for a previous injury, the results were temporary. Alex at Atlas PT explained the ’why’ behind my pain, gave me detailed exercises and therapy that were doable, I noticed results immediately... and four years later, I can still run, hike, and ski again without pain.
