How will a Podiatrist or foot specialist diagnose?
If you have severe foot and heel pain, you should consult either a podiatrist, an orthopedic surgeon or a biomechanical foot specialist like those at JE Care – The practitioners understanding in foot and ankle disorders are superior to those of a general practitioner.
• They’ll begin by inquiring about your symptoms. All possible questions are answered in the initial consultation; what made the worst, and what helps, previous medical history like surgeries for example.
• Your therapist will then examine your feet physically. They’ll assess for abnormalities and particularly painful spots or stress areas.
• The specialist will ask you to perform a range of static and dynamic movements so that they can see how your feet, as well as ankles and knees are placed during specific movements.
• At JE Care we provide you with a customized foot scan using the RS Footscan® imaging pads. The data will illustrate where and how pressures are distributed through your feet and help understand the reasons of the injury.
• Traditional scanning of your foot, such as an X-ray, bone density scan, and MRI, may also be recommended. This can aid in detecting areas affected by arthritis, injury, or damage due to trauma
• When offering treatment suggestions, a specialist will consider every one of these diagnostic methods, including the possibility of prescribing orthotics.
Types of Foot Orthotics for Curing Foot Injuries
Foot orthotics are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.
• Orthotics are available in a multitude of materials that can be personalized. The specialist will issue an orthotic recommendation based on a patient’s situation and symptoms.
