We Help Build Amazing Lives From the Feet Up
So many of my Clients ask us "how can you love working with stinky feet all day??"
My answer is simple; it's not so much the feet but the people attached to them we love to work with!
Each day we are lucky enough to be able to come to a job we love and help clients find the best solutions to the foot and leg problems that stop them living their best life.
Some people might view a trip to the Podiatrist as a bit of a luxury; a bit of pampering for tired feet or a place to go when you are older and can’t cut your nails anymore.
Your Podiatrist, however, can offer you so much more than this.
Your Feet Work Really Hard, Every Day.
Every day, your feet have to cope with the entire body weight pressing down on them with every step you take.
If you take 10,000 steps per day, that equates to roughly 750,000kg passing through your feet daily, 237,000,000 kilograms per year and roughly 17 billion kilograms during your lifetime.
That’s a lot of stress your feet are coping with, no wonder they can cause you problems from time to time.
Foot problems can not only create significant distress, pain and loss of independence they can actually reduce your life expectancy.
25% of the population will suffer from foot problems or foot pain at any one time however only 5-10% of these people will consult a Podiatrist for help.
Podiatrists help with a huge variety of foot, ankle and leg problems on a daily basis.
From babies to sports enthusiasts, from traumatic injuries to older people looking for a little help, we see it all.
