Celebrating National Foot Health Week
National Foot Health Week is back for 2023 and runs April 17th – 23rd
In our lifetimes we walk an average of 115,000 miles, but our feet are one of our most neglected body parts when it comes to maintenance and care.
Routine podiatry is a part of regular maintenance to keep feet healthy, not just for when you are experiencing pain or discomfort. Our feet undergo a lot of stress just by carrying our bodies. If you are experiencing ongoing problems such as, dry, excessively moist skin or fungal infections then a routine podiatry appointment is for you.
Podiatry appointments should be thought of like an annual eye test.
We can treat existing conditions and help with pain management, advise on lifestyle adjustments to promote foot health, check and recommend appropriate footwear, spot potential issues early and prevent future problems.
Did you know feet problems can indicate other underlying health problems so it is important we take care of our feet and see a podiatrist as we would with any other body part and specialist.
