What happens during the consultation

A thorough history of your problem will be taken alongside any correspondence if you have been referred. 

We will analyse any footwear you wear regularly.

Generally we will then do a weightbearing and non weightbearing assessment looking at joint motions and positions whilst also doing appropriate clinical testing.

We will do a dynamic assessment possibly utilising slow motion video analysis and can also measure pressure distribution to both feet as well as various gait parameters.

From this conclusions will be drawn and a treatment plan formulated in discussion with yourself.

Treatment may include:

  • Stretches and exercises
  • Footwear advice
  • Activity modification
  • Strapping
  • Mobilisation
  • Ice
  • Orthoses

Or referral to additional healthcare professionals to further assist with treatment.
