What Are Online Podiatry Consultations?

We are excited to announce that online Podiatry consultations are now available through FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics. We’re foot focussed, technology inspired and results driven and are always expanding our capabilities to meet changing times and needs. As such and with recent global events and ongoing restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we’ve introduced online Podiatry consultations. This cutting edge process, allows you to have a video consultation with one of our friendly Podiatrists so that you can find out what is causing your pain and get it resolved ASAP.

These appointments are available to existing and new patients who cannot attend in person due to location, self-isolation or government restrictions. They are even perfect for those mornings you simply don’t want to leave the comfort of your own house! Don’t live in Cairns or even Far North QLD? That’s perfectly fine! This is one of the added bonuses of our online Podiatry consultations – we can take our expertise to patients all over Australia.

By using the Physitrack app, we’re able to provide personalised consultations to help diagnose and treat your condition. Via the app, we will be with you every step of the way, providing advice and instructions for personalised rehabilitation plans.

What Can We Treat via an Online Podiatry Consultation?

You’d be surprised at what we can assess and treat via an online Podiatry consultation. In fact, research suggests that online appointments can be just as effective as a traditional, hands-on consultations for a multitude of musculoskeletal conditions. Nothing is more frustrating than the vague information you receive from ‘Dr Google’. You are often left thinking you have got shin splints, cancer and a torn muscle all at the same time! Why use ‘Dr Google’ when you can talk to one of our experienced Podiatrists over your phone, tablet or PC to help diagnose and formulate a treatment plan that is tailored specific to your complaint and goals. All from the comfort of your own home or office!

Of course, there are some conditions that require hands on manual therapy, in which case we can arrange an appointment at one of our clinics as and when you are able to attend. Don’t live in Cairns or even Far North QLD? That’s perfectly fine! We can refer you to the appropriate specialists or doctors in your area if required.

Here are just a handful of conditions we are able to successfully treat via online consultations:
