When we get older, we realise that there are many things that we start to find difficult to achieve such as self-care and household management.

Therefore, home care assistance becomes essential for the vulnerable groups to maintain their overall wellbeing. However, home-based healthcare service is limited and most of the people may still have to visit the clinics for the health-related issues. Transportation is the main challenge for those who need regular appointments to improve their health. Thus, Gen Physio’s podiatrist are here to assist you.

What is a home visit podiatrist?

The home visit podiatrist is a health specialist who helps with problems that affect your feet or lower legs in the home-based settings. Sometimes, we are known as foot doctors.

We treat common foot problems and assist clients to maintain the overall good foot hygiene. We are here to make sure you can perform daily tasks without any foot pain.

What can we do?

We are slightly different from the clinical-based podiatrist. As we are travelling to your place, we do not have extensive equipment with us to treat complex foot health issues. We are here to provide:

  • Diabetic assessment – monitoring the vascular and neurological status, dermatological assessment and provides diabetic foot care education. However, the high-risk patients with foot wound presentation would highly advise to organise the hospital appointments.
  • Biomechanical assessment – basic sports injuries. We assess your pain origin and determine how does it affect to your daily living. We also provide explanations in detail on how to minimise or prevent the pain. As we do not have extensive biomechanical treatment modalities, we will advise where referral to clinical-based podiatrists or other allied health disciplines are appropriate.
  • General foot care – onychomycosis (fungal toenails) management, corns, warts, ingrown toenails (without local anaesthesia).
  • Dermatological assessment – foot lesions where it may affect the daily living.
  • Footwear assessment – check if the current footwear suits your feet. Education on the standard features of good footwear and good wearing pattern.
