WHAT TO EXPECT
Medical Case History
It is important that a thorough medical case history is carried out on the initial consultation, to understand if there are any previous foot conditions, allergies, illnesses that affect the feet, or if the patients are on any particular medication that could affect treatment or products used in treatment.
Examination and Diagnosis
After examining the feet, the foot health professional will explain the diagnosis and which form of treatment, if any, would be appropriate. This will cover the treatment process with an explanation of the products that will be used.
Our foot health professional, Linda treats in a very gentle manner and will explain what she is doing throughout. Any products used within the treatment will be made available to purchase after the consultation, should she suggest it needs further treatment between sessions.
THE FOOT HEALTH CLINIC RUNS ON WEDNESDAY MORNINGS.
