3 Minute Foot Test

Other things they can look for are: you walking up and down in clinic. They might watch you walk in to see if there are any changes in your gait patterns that might put you at greater risk and other things of that nature. But those are the things that one can assess in a clinical exam and those should just take remarkably a couple of minutes. We've even put it all together - we and some other folks - into what we call a 3 minute foot exam. That foot exam is readily available on the web. You can google that and I'm sure that we can put links to where you can find that so that you can (if you want to) try it at home. Why not? Link to 3 minute foot exam:
