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.
