Do you find that foot pain, ankle pain, heel pain or general discomfort in your feet is stopping you from doing the activities you enjoy?
Your feet work so hard every day to support you as you go about your daily life, and they need to be taken care of, however, as you get older it can become more challenging to look after them.
Maybe conditions such as calluses, corns, in-grown toe nails, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis or joint disorders such as arthritis are keeping you from getting the most out of your life. You could be experiencing foot fungus or toe nail fungus, which both have an impact on your quality of life.
That’s where the services of a qualified podiatrist could assist you.
A podiatrist can diagnose your condition, recommend an appropriate approach to lessening, or even stopping, the discomfort you feel, and may perform direct treatment on your feet if required. They can provide toe nail cutting and explain how you can contribute to your own foot care.
