How does it work?

A private 1-on-1 consultation is conducted via video on your mobile phone – you will receive a link prior to your appointment. It is a simple, easy to use platform that enables us to clearly show you demonstrations of assessment tests to better understand your problem. This is no different to what we would do in a normal consult.

Please ensure you are in a quiet room with good lighting that you will be able to comfortably move around in if required. 

What Can We Treat In An Online Podiatry Consultation?

You may be surprised to learn that online treatment is one of the most successful ways to treat heel pain/plantar fasciitis or achilles tendinitis. The reason behind this is that hands-on treatments tend to provide short term, symptom relief without resolving the issue completely. Whilst these are important techniques to help reduce your pain, the best way to get you back to activity pain-free is through a structured rehabilitation program. We have years of experience in treating plantar heel pain, plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis/tendinopathy issues. These issues can be simply treated through appropriate exercise and movement programs.

When conducting an online heel pain relief consult, the first priority is to get a clear diagnosis of your injury. We will run you through a range of tests that may also involve a referral for X-rays or Ultrasound. Once we have established the extent of your injury we can provide appropriate pain-management strategies, such as offload and taping (specific to your concern), and then prescribe a tailored rehabilitation plan to get you moving well and feeling great. We understand there may be occasions that you will need some hands-on treatments such as shockwave therapy or dry needling and this can certainly be arranged in-clinic if required.

How Can We Provide Treatment For Skin And Nail Conditions Online?

Corns, warts and ingrown toenails are very common complaints we see. It is fundamentally important to correctly diagnose your issue prior to any treatment and this can be easily done online. Ingrown nails can be assessed online to either prevent an infection from occurring or to treat a current infection as soon as possible to avoid serious complications. Via virtual podiatry we can assess your toenail, describe immediate self-treatment options for you (under podiatry supervision) and see you in-clinic or refer you to a GP if further treatment is required.We are unable to provide general skin and nail online but can provide solutions for corns, wart and other skin complaints.
