There are three ankle/foot specialists I typically refer on to  who see private patients in Glasgow: Mr Bob Carter ,Mr Senthil Kumar and Ms Ros Millar. 

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. The demands of work or 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 to provide Physiotherapy in Glasgow, but it is wise to contact them before any consultation. You will need to get authorisation from your insurer before attending for Physiotherapy and also inform them as to which of my clinics you will be attending.
