About Our Foot and Leg Pain Appointment
A fulfilling active lifestyle often relies on the healthy movement of your lower limbs and feet. During this 40-minute appointment, our podiatrists will complete a comprehensive assessment of your biomechanical issue and develop an effective treatment plan that works to resolve it. Common conditions include heel pain, flat feet, ball of foot pain, bunions, and shin splints.
What to Expect During Your Foot and Leg Pain Appointment
Medical History Review
One of our expert podiatrists will begin by asking you questions to clarify your current issues and establish treatment goals.
Current Footwear & Prescription Analysis
Your podiatrist will review your current footwear, as well as any existing prescriptions or off-the-shelf devices, such as orthotics.
You’ll undergo a comprehensive Biomechanical Assessment, during which your podiatrist will analyse the ways your joints and muscles move together while you sit, stand and move.
Video gait (Movement) Analysis
Using innovative video technology*, your podiatrist will observe your walking and/or running in slow motion to help accurately develop a treatment plan for your specific needs.
Effective Treatment Plan
You’ll review your diagnosis and treatment options, including recommendations for follow-up appointments to monitor the progress towards your treatment goals.
*While all of our locations offer video movement analysis, a more thorough computerised analysis is performed on a specialised treadmill at our Upper Mount Gravatt clinic
