What to expect during a consultation
During the initial consultation, a detailed history would be taken, your feet and legs would be examined and a biomechanical examination carried out. The podiatrist would also assess your walking/running gait using slow motion video gait analysis . This is followed by discussion and diagnosis of the problem and implementation of a treatment plan. Orthotics are not always recommended to every patient and we can discuss footwear and other aspects of podiatry treatment in the consultation.
Should the treatment plan however include Custom Made Orthotics, and you wish to go ahead with this, casts of your feet can be taken at the first consultation. These casts will be sent to the lab who make the orthotics according to the prescription designed by the podiatrist with information collated from your biomechanical assessment and Gait Analysis. They take approximately 3-4 weeks to be made.
Please wear normal everyday walking shoes and bring shorts and trainers (if applicable) to your appointment. Should you already have orthotics/insoles could you also bring these with you.
