Our feet are sophisticated pieces of machinery. Made up of 1/4 bones in our bodies, our feet allow us to walk an average of 130,000 kms in a lifetime. As well as carrying the weight of our body, they must also twist and flex with increased impact and strain when we move around. Even through simple day-to-day activities such as standing and walking, our feet can be injured if not properly supported.
Your feet really do deserve a Chiropodist. The condition of our feet often provides early indications of conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, and circulatory disease. For this reason, the human foot is sometimes called the ‘mirror of health’. Look out for signs such as dry skin, brittle nails, burning and tingling sensations, feelings of cold, numbness, and discolouration. Always seek the opinion of a Chiropodist when any of these signs occur.
Whether you are a person that has difficult time to reach their toenails to cut them, or a person with tired achy feet, the services offered at our clinic cater to everyone. Because they are so far away from our heart, our feet are often the first part of the body to show something is wrong with the way blood circulates in our body.
The most important thing to remember is that our feet should not hurt. Sore feet are the sign of a problem. Our feet can suffer enormous wear and tear including overuse, neglect, infection, injury and disease; however Chiropody care can help to keep your feet healthy and happy.
