At Mt Waverley Foot Clinic we can treat a variety of foot and ankle pain. This type of pain can be caused by injuries to muscles, ligaments, and joints, nerve entrapment/pain, osteoarthritis, diabetes, sporting injuries or overuse of a muscle or ligament. These issues can cause pain to progress and limit your activity levels or even make daily tasks excruciating.
After a detailed medical history and proper physical assessment, our podiatrists can find out what structures are the issue and the cause of these issues. Then they work with you to come up with an appropriate treatment plan to alleviate your pain and return to normal as soon as possible.
