When was the last time you serviced your feet?

We love our cars and take good care of them.  But often we pay little attention to  our main form of transport – our feet .

The average person walks 128,800 kms in a lifetime.  That adds up to a lot of wear and tear over  the years.

Who is most at risk ?

You feet may be in greater need of a regular check up if you

  • Are over 50
  • Participate regularly in sporting activities
  • Have diabetes, arthritis or a circulatory condition
  • Are on your feet all day at work.

You don’t have to put up with foot pain and let it restrict your mobility and health .

Many problems can be prevented by early diagnosis and treatment.

What can I do ?

Consult your Podiatrist is

  • You experience troublesome pain, throbbing or itching
  • You notice a discharge coming from a tear in the skin or under a mole or nail
  • You have any other concerns about your feet.

Podiatrists are primary health care professionals who diagnose and treat disorders of the foot and  lower leg.

You do not need  a doctor’s referral to see a Podiatrist
