What are the benefits of Podiatric Care?
Podiatric care can provides various health benefits from acute foot and ankle pain-relief, to maintenance of a healthy foot for diabetics and resultant limb salvage, to increasing range of motion and overall mobility for walking, running or sports.
What should you expect on your first visit?
To insure your first visit with us is a pleasant one, here are the procedures you can expect.
Podiatric Consultation – You will begin by completing a questionnaire that will help us to get to know you better. Following the completion of the questionnaire you’ll meet the Medical Foot Specialist, who will review your health history and determine if you are a podiatric treatment candidate.
Examination – If your case is deemed a podiatric case, standard physical appearance, range of motion, orthopedic and gait examinations will be performed. There may be a need for further padding and strapping or further exploration e.g. X-Ray or Ultrasound to help conclude a diagnosis.
Based on their report of finding, the Specialist can conclude a diagnosis and a treatment plan accordingly.
