As mentioned above, podiatry is often not considered by many people when they have an ankle, lower leg or foot issue. However, it is the best care you can receive for these areas in Fitzroy. At Inertia Health Group, we want you to feel confident that you’re getting the best care so we’ve prepared a checklist of what you can expect on your first appointment.
Upon arrival for your first appointment, you will meet our brilliant administration team, and they will ask you to fill out a new client registration form. The intended purpose of this form is to provide the podiatry team with your relevant information and is necessary for our podiatrists to gain a brief picture of your health before they begin treatment.
While our podiatry team are mainly concerned with your feet and whether or not they are functioning correctly, we will likely ask you questions regarding your general health. The parts that make up your body all work interconnectedly, and a problem in one area can cause an effect elsewhere, and this helps us to make our diagnoses and direct treatment accordingly.
Our podiatry team aim to get a comprehensive understanding of why you are experiencing pain or malfunction of the feet or lower leg so that we can recommend a short-term treatment and then provide a detailed plan for rehabilitation going forward. Many different conditions can have a significant impact on your foot health, so it’s important to get as much information from you as possible.
Conditions such as diabetes, Parkinson's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, heart & blood flow conditions and peripheral neuropathy can all cause difficulty for the health of your feet. One of the most critical parts of our podiatry job is to educate the residents of Fitzroy about how these conditions can affect your foot health and how you can help manage it.
After the assessment, the podiatrist will begin treatment specific to your condition. We pride ourselves on forming and facilitating positive relationships with our clients from Fitzroy and the surrounds and ensuring your foot health along life’s continuum.
