Frequently Asked Questions

Your health is important to you, and when you're parting with your money too, the stakes are higher. 

We understand that

Here are the questions we get asked a lot. If we've missed any out, let us know.

  • Keep On Your Feet has two main types of initial consultation: 

    1. Routine Initial Consultation (40 minutes)

    2. Pain & Injury Consultation (60 minutes)

    Routine Initial Consultations are best suited to skin and nail issues, however, they can be used if you have an injury or pain and you would like to find out if I can help, and how I can help. 

    Pain & Injury Consultations are well-suited to patients who have had an injury or ongoing pain with their foot, ankle and leg. 

  • The appointment will usually follow a similar process to a Routine Initial Consultation but might include the following: 

    • Functional movement assessment

    • Gait analysis

    • Ultrasound scan (Charges may apply)

    • Injections (Diagnostic & Therapeutic)

    • Report

  • At Keep On Your Feet, we know that when you book one of our Pain & Injuries consultations, you're looking for us to fix the problem. Whilst we cannot guarantee that we can fix your problem there and then, what we can try to do is maximise our chances. This is not done by rushing the appointment. 

    In some instances, we may take extra time to do some functional or baseline testing. 

    As well as this, where you are issued orthotics, these may require customising for your condition or require explanations on how they should be used.

  • A podiatrist is a specialist in foot and ankle pain. In the UK, the title 'podiatrist' is meant to mean the same as 'chiropodist'. This being said, generally speaking: a chiropodist deals with your general footcare needs, whilst a podiatrist can deal with your general footcare needs, but they will look at you and your needs more holistically. A podiatrist will also manage more complex issues, such as foot pain, minor surgical procedures and they may also be skilled in gait analysis, rehabilitation and the more complex management of foot and ankle issues. 

    This means that when you choose to see a podiatrist, you will be getting a higher quality of care, and that the podiatrist will be able to screen you and identify issues much sooner than a regular chiropodist would. 

    Whilst some chiropodists and podiatrists will use the terms interchangeably, it is essential to keep in mind that both professions are regulated by the Health & Care Professions Council; whilst 'Foot Health Practitioners' (FHPs) are generally unregulated.
