How can we help?
Your feet and ankles are made from a series of small, interconnected bones supported by ligaments and muscles. These structures are essential for movement and stability and can be injured through trauma or overuse. As a result, common injuries we treat include ankle sprains and fractures, foot bone fractures, Plantar Fasciitis, and Achilles Tendonitis.
Our foot and ankle physiotherapists in Melbourne will perform a detailed examination of your ankle and foot, including movement analysis and other manual tests. We will also ask what activity you were doing when the injury occurred and any additional pertinent information.
