We are dedicated to supporting every person, at all stages of life, to being as active and healthy as possible.
The Victorian Podiatry Group offers a range of services, such as foot and ankle rehabilitation, ankle sprain rehab, and various other treatments, from several convenient and accessible locations across Melbourne. Did you know that your Achilles tendon is the largest and strongest in your body? Each tendon can be up to five millimetres thick and 15 centimetres long and can withstand a force of up to almost 500 kilograms. You use these tendons when you run, walk, or jump, as they connect your calf muscles and heel bones at the back of your ankles.
Achilles tendon injuries are varied and may involve a rehabilitation and recovery period. There are several reasons for using The Victorian Podiatry Group as your preferred podiatrist to assist you in your recovery.
