What to Expect at your First Chiropody Appointment
Published On: March 28, 2019
Professional Footcare – Initial Visit Consultation and Treatment.
Your first appointment is a combination of a “let’s get to know each other”, consultation and treatment. Your Chiropodist wants to learn what’s important to you, your goals, and lifestyle.
A medical history and consent form is completed by the patient and you’ll review everything with your Chiropodist. You can download and complete the form before you arrive at your appointment if you wish. Werkman-Boven-New-Patient-Form
A complete examination and assessment of your feet is conducted, looking for and checking:
range of motion/gait analysis (foot function), circulation, sensation, colour
digital photos of both your feet are taken
Treatment options are then presented and discussed, along with your questions answered and next steps decided.
Routine footcare is most often covered by Extended Health Insurance– under the heading Paramedical Services. Most insurance policies allow for $500 per calendar or benefit year for chiropody or podiatry services. Check your coverage!
