When consulting with a practitioner you’ll receive a lower limb, foot and ankle examination.

  • Review your medical and health history. Typical questions that you may be asked include:
    • How did the injury occur?
    • How long have you been suffering from this pain?
    • Have you experienced this previously? If so, what management (if any) did you seek?
    • Can you describe the location and severity of the pain?
  • Physical examination which includes palpation of the foot and ankle, muscle testing to assess symmetry and strength, range of motion assessment of the foot and ankle complex as well as orthopaedic and neurological testing.
  • Referral for imaging may be clinically indicated to assist your practitioner in formulating an appropriate diagnosis. Such images may include X-ray (to rule out heel spur), Ultrasound, MRI or CT.
