Foot Health has come a long way from simply " cutting nails". It covers a myriad of lower limb conditions including corns, in growing nails,infections,verrucae and many other foot problems.
As life expectancy increases, many more elderly people find themselves needing help with their foot care, painful feet can lead to a reluctance to mobilise in the elderly, which can cause added medical problems and isolation if they feel they cannot venture out. Foot Health is not just the realm of the elderly, the explosion of road running has led to a huge increase in the development and demand for the services of Foot Health Practitioners.
Diabetes is also a subject that is not going away and it is VERY important that people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes are seen by their practitioner on a regular basis to maintain a healthy life style.
