If you have not seen our Podiatrist before, or if you have a new problem, your first visit will be a comprehensive consultation. We cater for extra time, if needed, to fully assess your condition and ensure you receive the most effective treatment possible.
If you are being screened for a particular injury or biomechanical condition, it is a good idea to bring with you an example of two pairs of shoes you wear on a regular basis to help assist the Podiatrist with their diagnosis.
Each comprehensive consultation consists of a detailed discussion regarding your symptoms and mechanism of injury, assessment of your posture and analysis of foot function. Once a diagnosis has been reached, treatment options will be discussed and carried out – keep in mind that you are a key player in the management of your condition.
Standard follow-up appointments with your podiatrist include discussion on progress since the previous appointment and implementation of a long term treatment plan including footwear advice.
