Neurological Assessments

The feet are usually very sensitive and there is a good reason for this – we have lots of nerves in the area.  Our nerves are responsible for allowing us to feel stimulus correctly and also they enable our muscles to work properly.  A Podiatrist is able to check that the nerves are working as they should be, by taking a thorough history of your presenting complaint and following that up with a physical investigation to check your reflexes and how well you can perceive certain stimulus.  If you are found to have any neural defiticts, you will be offered practical advice to help deal with the issue or a further referral where appropriate.
