PhysioPod Multidisciplinary (MDT) Analysis details...
Podiatrist & Physio in one room!
We now offer multidisciplinary (MDT) consultations with Zoe Wilson (Lead MSK Podiatrist) and Jemma Donald (Lead Physiotherapist at Absolute Physiotherapy). Ever wanted a joint approach to your assessment and treatment plan? Sometimes having both of us in the room at once allows questions to be answered that otherwise wouldn’t in a lone appointment. We believe this is a gold standard approach to assessment and it is something we are very proud to offer to our patients.
Who is suitable for this unique appointment?
What can I expect from this analysis?
What will I need for my consultation?
We will need to know if you have had any updates to your medical history since your last appointment. If you have any scan results, test results or referral notes from your GP or other health professional we suggest that these are also brought to the appointment.
A pair of shorts will be required and 1 to 2 pairs of shoes (occupation footwear/a pair of activity shoes). Bring a selection of the shoes that you wear for any of the sporting activities you participate in.
