Sports/Musculoskeletal Podiatry and Orthotics
This appointment type is aimed at non sport related musculoskeletal injuries. The appointment will start with a thorough history taking, including a full medical history, discussion of your current activity and specific information regarding the presenting problem.
Following the history taking you will be taken through a series of specific tests to diagnose your injury. Your diagnosis will then be clearly explained to you, and a treatment plan will be tailored for your specific problem.
