How do I get an appointment for a foot and/or ankle assessment?
Most patients with foot or ankle pain/problems will either self refer for physio or will be referred by their GP or hospital consultant from the Glasgow area.
To arrange an appointment contact Frank Gilroy directly on 07906 250 032
What happens at a foot and ankle consultation?
The physiotherapy appointment to assess your foot and/or ankle will be typically 30 to 45 minutes for a new referral. During that time I will carry out a thorough clinical assessment of your foot and ankle to ensure you receive appropriate advice, education and management strategies.
Will I need further investigation?
Should you need further investigation I will refer you back to your GP or Consultant for their opinion as this is a medical decision.
When can I return to work or sport?
My aim is to return patients back to their work and sport as soon as possible. The length of time depends on the injury and the treatment required. Additionally, the demands of work or the particular sport, the healing time of injury and rate of progress through rehabilitation goals are all factors in the return to activity.
What do I need to tell my insurance company?
I am recognised by the major insurance companies for Physiotherapy in Glasgow, but I would advise my patients to contact them before any consultation. You will need to get authorisation from your insurer before attending for Physiotherapy and specify to them which of my clinics you will be attending.
