At your appointment you will be asked detailed questions about your problem and how this is affecting you.
The Podiatrist will need to examine your legs, thighs and on some occasions your back. They will carry out a seated assessment to examine your foot and lower limb flexibility and test your muscle strength. The joints in the feet will have the range of motion and alignments checked.
Then, while standing, your Foot Posture Index (FPI) will be looked at. Your foot and lower limb flexibility and any misalignments in the feet, legs, pelvis and shoulders noted. Your gait will be videoed to assess your walking style, cadence and propulsion and finally a detailed in-shoe gait analysis will be carried out using the state of the art Digitsole system
