There are two options for the first appointment with us:
- Initial consultation (up to 40 mins) – suitable for simple foot and ankle problems that started less than 6 months ago.
- Comprehensive initial consultation (up to 90 mins) – suitable for complex foot and ankle problems which started more than 6 months ago.
What to expect?
During the initial consultation appointment, we’ll explore the history of the problem, and perform a range of assessments including foot health check, physical assessment, and functional assessment of the foot and ankle.
For the comprehensive initial consultation, in addition to the aforementioned assessments, we will also perform these assessments for your lower limbs including gait analysis of the entire body, neurological assessment may also be performed as appropriate.
Treatment options may include foot orthoses, footwear, exercises, activity adaptations, and other appropriate advice. The podiatrist will discuss with you to find the most suitable treatment plan that helps to optimise your recovery as well as being appropriate to your activities and lifestyle.
