For some reason this is a question I ponder over often. I see all sorts of feet through my clinic, some are well cared for and some are not! I do see a number of clients that due to advancing age, hip or back surgery, are physically not able to mind their feet. However this is by no means the majority.
When clients attend my clinic it’s normally as a last resort, they couldn’t handle the pain or discomfort any longer. I encourage clients to seek out an appointment with the podiatrist as soon as a problem starts and not one or two months later.
My most repeated saying is “If your feet hurt, everything hurts”. It can be amazing the improvement in mood, activity and spirit when your feet are healthy and working at their best.
Look after your feet, they’re the only pair you get!
