My name is Laura and I am one of the founders and directors of The Online Podiatrist (TOP) and The Foot Studio Podiatry.
We are offering both online and in-studio Podiatry consultations!
We can see anyone, anywhere…
Maybe you don’t have time for traffic, parking and waiting rooms, have your hands full balancing kids, dinner and the laundry or maybe you live in a remote location where “popping” into the local podiatrist isn’t all that practical.
What ever the problem may be, it does not matter!
The beauty of online podiatry is you can have access to a Podiatrist from the comfort of…. where ever you are! Mustering cattle in the remote northwest, you could be at home with all the kids put to bed (no judgment if there is a glass of red in hand), you could be self isolating and have plenty of spare time to get those questions about your feet answered!
If any of the above applies to you all you need to do is start a conversation with us.
How can we help via online Podiatry or TeleHealth? We can help ANYONE, babies, kids, right through to grandma and grandad! Age is no factor in our ability to help someone with their feet.
What can we help with online?
Podiatrists specialise in ANYTHING in the foot and ankle…so if you are having issues down that end of the body you will be talking with the right health professional.
Our aim with any treatment is to identify WHAT is going on ,“diagnose,” and then advise the client on how best to “fix” the problem they are having.
Now you might be thinking, “how can a podiatrist help me without touching me?” Now the traditional view of a podiatrist is very hands on, but in reality it’s only a small portion of what we do to help out with peoples feet.
Over hands on therapies it’s often more important to educate you about your condition and identify various lifestyle factors that may be contributing to it. From there implementing a personalised treatment and or exercise plan allows us to get you back on your feet sooner than later!
And of course if our diagnosis indicates you require “hands on” Podiatry, Physiotherapy or need to see a general Practitioner or other health professional, we will help put you in touch with someone who can help.
Online in just one appointment we should have a pretty good idea “what” the problem is and “how” you can to get it sorted.
If you have read this far and are having trouble with your feet (or know someone who is- share this post to their facebook page).
Step one is to click the link below, leave your name and number; we will have an obligation free conversation, answer any questions you may have and go from there!
What does an online consultation would look like?
It is much like a face to face conversation, you can see the Podiatrist, the Podiatrist can see you, similar to FaceTime, google hangouts or Facebook messenger video calls. The only difference is we use a special medical program that has full AES-256 bit data encryption for the online consult. AND we can share instructional and educational content to you through out the consult and discuss things as they come up through the consult.
All Podiatry appointments start with a detailed case history where we run through relevant medical history and then the podiatrist will conduct a “subjective assessment” in which The podiatrist will ask you a series of questions that will give them they information they need to know about your injury or condition (no hands on required) by the end of these questions the podiatrist will have a pretty good idea of what we are dealing with, we may also do some further testing to confirm the diagnosis.
From here we can get to the fun part of fixing the problem! We can create excercise programs tailored to you and your needs! We have over 4200 clear narrated instructional exercise videos, we have educational videos & written Documents that go though different conditions injuries in great detail! All of this will be available from…where ever you might me…on your computer, smartphone or tablet!
And for those of us that prefer things on paper all Excercise programs and educational material can be printed at home.
There is SO much we can offer to SO many people with this technology and look forward to meeting you all online!

Looking forward to it, BYE FOR NOW
