What happens in a Podiatry appointment?
Depending upon the type of condition you present with we will generally perform a thorough examination of your site of pain.
- We will often assess your foot and lower limb bio mechanics to see if your gait pattern may be a predisposing factor in the condition you have.
- We will review you walking or running and use video equipment to analyse this more thoroughly.
- If we identify an anomaly we will often recommend the fitting of an orthotic into your shoe as well as providing you with a management plan that frequently includes exercises.
