Adapting Essential Principles Of Biomechanical Assessment For Telemedicine Visits

Adapting Essential Principles Of Biomechanical Assessment For Telemedicine Visits | Digital Foot Universe | Scoop.it
There are several common steps I use in a general biomechanical assessment when I am evaluating patients with injuries or pain. I recently shared these principles during a remote lecture I gave to students at the California School of Podiatric Medicine at Samuel Merritt University. However, in a time when traditional office visits are limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I thought some of these steps may be adaptable to a telemedicine-type of encounter.

Recognizing And Addressing The Impact Of The COVID-19 Tidal Wave On Lower Extremity Wound Care

Recognizing And Addressing The Impact Of The COVID-19 Tidal Wave On Lower Extremity Wound Care | Digital Foot Universe | Scoop.it
Lower extremity wound care has changed dramatically. A few months ago, we provided regimented care to our patients with ulcers. We identified and treated infections seamlessly. We referred patients with vasculopathy to vascular surgeon colleagues for endovascular or open bypass procedures to restore blood flow. We would perform elective surgery procedures to relieve ulcer-causing deformities.
