Problems in the lower limb may be muscular, tendinous or related to the hip, knee or ankle joints. Pain may be referred from the lumbar spine or sacroiliac joint into the lower limb and can be confusing. The clinical assessment aims to determine the cause and source of pain, so treatment may be better directed.

Lower Limb Pain



All patients will be directed to a set of online forms to complete prior to the actual clinical consultation. The information gathered is secure and will save 20 minutes of consultation time, allowing for a longer more focused one-on-one attention. The questionnaires will take about 20 minutes to complete. A report is generated automatically and this is immediately available to Dr Laslett

Online Pre-Assessment Questionnaire


One hour is allocated for one-on-one attention. A detailed clinical history is followed by a comprehensive physical examination. Generally a clinical diagnosis is achievable, but further assessment and other investigations may be needed in complex conditions. After the initial consultation, Dr Laslett will write a detailed report  that goes to the referring health care practitioner, and the patient. A management plan is included, which may include treatment by Dr Laslett, referral to other specialists, or referral back to existing care providers as needed
