One of our specialities is diagnosing your sports and running foot injury and linking all of the potential contributing factors to your pathology. Another speciality of ours is then being able to clearly explain your condition and the contributing factors to you so you will then better understand why we put in place certain interventions and treatment.
To be able to do all of this properly we make sure we do not rush your appointment and spend up to 60 minutes with you during your initial consultation.
Below is an example of what is would usually be covered during your initial consultation keeping in mind each case is different and some of the items listed here may not be relevant at the time of consult.
A thorough patient history
Listing of all your symptoms and when they are worse
Discussion of your goals e.g. a running event you might be working towards
Clearly identifying and explaining the affected anatomy using aids such as foot models and iPad apps
