What will happen at my first appointment?
At your first appointment with your permission I will complete an assessment. This is done to ensure you have the safest possible and most useful treatment. All information recorded is completely confidential and stored safely. Once the assessment is completed, if you rebook further appointments it will not be repeated. At your first appointment you will also receive treatment for your foot problem.
With your consent I will:
Make a note of basic details, for example your home address, telephone number, GP address and date of birth.
Make a note of your medical history. This will include asking you about any health problems you may have and medication you are taking.
Ask you about your foot problems.
Visually examine your feet.
Check the blood supply to your feet. This is a quick and pain free test which involves feeling the pulses in your feet, or using equipment called a hand held Doppler.
Check the nerve supply to your feet. Again this is a quick and pain free test.
Start treating your foot problem.
If appropriate for your foot problem I may ask you if I can do what is called a biomechanical assessment. This involves testing the movement in your feet and seeing what happens to your feet when you walk. Examples of foot conditions that might benefit from treatment following a biomechanical assessment are: painful flat feet, plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma and Achilles tendinitis.
What is the difference between chiropody and podiatry?
There really isn’t any difference between the two different terms. Podiatry is just a more modern word for chiropody. A chiropodist/podiatrist treats anything from calluses, corns and nails to problems associated with foot function (sometimes called a biomechanical problem).
You are welcome to contact me if you have any questions about your foot problem or about the treatments I offer.
