How is a virtual visit different from an in-person visit?
Surprisingly, a lot can be done virtually for this traditionally hands-on profession! More time spent conducting a thorough and detailed history lets your virtual foot specialist find the source of your pain and choose an appropriate treatment protocol. Assessments require visual observation of foot posture and gait as well as strength exams. As your coach, your virtual foot specialist has you, the patient, perform self-assessment techniques while being visually monitored for accuracy. If for any reason your particular foot ailment cannot be assessed properly in a virtual setting, you will be advised to seek an in-person assessment.
