We speculated that it might be due to blocking of the nerve while sleeping or something and deduced that it would eventually subside. However, her continuous grumbling behavior made me realize that the medical issue was far more serious than expected. So, my next move was to get her to a podiatrist ASAP.
Off we went after an appointment had been fixed with the foot specialist here in Melbourne. Entering the clinical centre made me feel a little nervous which was quite expected from someone like me who had rarely approached for medical help. So, there we were in front of the doctor who at once noticed my friend limping while entering the room.
After my friend told her what she felt, the doctor started examining the foot for movements. She made her walk a few times and also tried to get her to speak about everything that she felt as accurately as possible. The consultation took around 40 minutes in which she kept examining her foot area with keen observation.
Before coming to any conclusion, she told her to get an X-ray taken for the foot in order to check for dysfunctions in the foot. The doctor suggested this to ensure that there were no complicated musculoskeletal issues in the limb or foot.
After the complete analysis, she inferred that it was due to the high-heeled footwear wore by her which caused the dysfunction in her joint. So, the podiatrist advised her to stop wearing such high heels which could complicate things and lead to chronic pain and suffering.
So, it was lucky for her to be relieved of higher complicated treatments in podiatry such as orthosis, injection therapy, taping or perhaps a more intense surgical procedure. So what we experienced there was something new for me. Though I was not the patient, but it is understandable how nervous people might feel when medical clinics are approached. However, the friendly nature of the podiatrist greatly helped us to stay comfortable with the issue. I just hope that she limits her fashion fanatic behaviour by, not wearing those high heeled boots from now on.
