If you have pain in your heel, ankle or anywhere between your knee and your foot we can help you.
Conditions this is particularly suited to includes;
Achilles tendon pain
Children's foot disorders
We can also asses your strange looking toenail, decide whether you have a verruca or not and look at that funny lump on your foot!
Before the appointment we will take a full medical history and history of your problem. During the appointment we can look at your feet, ankles, legs and knees, watch you walk and examine your footwear and perform some clinical tests. You can show us the exact point of your pain. We can then put all this information together to form a diagnosis and come up with a management plan, which you can start right away because you are at home.
As well as advising you of your diagnosis, we can;
Advise on activity modification
Give footwear advice
Prescribe stretching and strengthening exercises which we can email to you
Recommend any products which can be bought online
Clearly we cannot touch your foot and ankle, prescribe fully bespoke foot orthoses or surgically remove an ingrowing toenail!
There may be times where we recommend a follow up face to face in clinic but this will be all explained to you.
Traditionally, we would have always seen patients face to face to help them with their foot and ankle problem as that was the way it was always done.
Now COVID-19 is here it has made us think of different ways of doing things. The technology exists to be able to deliver online consultations so why not use it?
Benefits to you:
You can have your problem assessed within the comfort of your own home
Appointment times are more flexible as they are not restricted to clinical opening hours
You can be seen quicker than having to wait until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and get started on treating your pain immediately
They are cost effective
