As soon as the spring arrives we start to see patients who come to our practices wanting to make their feet presentable for sandals, holidays and parties after a long winter of neglect and being stuffed into shoes and boots.
Since good foot care habits can in some cases prevent problems all together, we are always keen to advise on self-help.
As it is coming to that warmer (hopefully!) time of year, this is a great time to give you some top tips on foot care.
As we are in the month of springtime, there are glimmers of hope for warmth, sunny days, holidays and ditching the heavy winter coats and boots!
Time to get your feet out, give them an airing and freshen them up for summer time!
We know only too well that feet come in all shapes and sizes…..they are not everyone’s favourite part of the body….but let’s not forget that they are an essential and integral part of the body and not just for stuffing into pretty shoes, forgotten for the rest of the day until you take your shoes off at the end of a hard day’s work!
Feet need good care not only to prevent problems but also so that they look more aesthetically pleasing.
Over the next few weeks we will be posting some useful blogs on caring for your feet and how to make the best of them….best foot forward!
This week’s blog is for anyone who has UNSIGHTLY TOENAILS?
As podiatrists; we see lots of people in the clinic with nail problems. Disease processes and injury can often lead to unsightly and painful toe nails.
Nothing at all!
This is the church in Brentwood where I was invited to talk about diabetic feet.
We talked of the importance of having your feet looked after regularly by a Podiatrist, who would carry out regular diabetic foot assessments.
How the diabetic person can look after their feet themselves at home.
I emphasized the importance of wearing the correct and well fitting shoes as well the slippers.
Of course not forgetting that the Diabetic foot requires the same care and attention when away on holiday and this is the time when protective and comfortable shoes are also just as important.
Thank you to the group who were very kind to me and my assistant Simone and made us feel most welcome.
