What does a treatment session involve?

On your initial visit a full medical history detailing lifestyle routines including sports, work, hobbies, habits and downtime will be taken. The practitioner will assess movement, palpate sore areas and test muscle strength to give an idea of what movements you can and can’t do. In order to gain an overall picture you will be asked to undress to your underwear, so it is worth bringing shorts.

Once assessments are complete they will go through the findings and explain where the focus of treatment will be and which areas need to be worked on. 

You will be given a prognosis and with this a treatment plan specific to you will be formed, this will include exercises, stretches, postural advice and things to avoid to speed up your recovery.

At The Foot and Gait Clinic we are patient-centred and want to ensure you have the very best care, not just for the problem at hand, but also for preventing reoccurrences

Sometimes further investigations are required such as an X-ray or MRI. If this is necessary you will be guided through the best options for imaging.
