Every appointment starts with you. We find out about you, about what’s brought you in to us, what symptoms you’ve been experiencing, what your goals are and the results you’d like to achieve.
We take a detailed history so we have a complete picture of what may have contributed to the development of your pain or problems.
Once we have all of the information we need, our expert Podiatrists will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your lower limbs. Assessments will vary depending on the problem you’re experiencing but will likely include:
We use a variety of symptom-specific diagnostic tests to be able to identify the cause of your problems and all of the contributing factors. If necessary, we’ll refer you for an x-ray or ultrasound to confirm your diagnosis.
After we’ve confirmed your diagnosis, we’ll go through exactly what happening and causing your pain and why, in a way that is simple and easy for you to understand.
Understanding why a problem has developed means we can avoid placing more strain on the affected area now to start the repair process, and you’ll know what to look out for and avoid in the future to reduce the risk of it happening again.
This is where we develop a tailored treatment plan that not only get you feeling better, but gets you performing better and sees you reaching and exceeding your goals! We ensure the treatment plan works in with your life, your commitments and the things you hope to achieve.
We’ll go through every step, explaining how each component will help your progress. We’ll answer any questions you have and fill you in on everything you need to know to optimise your recovery.
From here, we can start your treatment so you can get back to doing the things you love and realising your full potential!
