It’s been an eventful year and everyone is more aware than ever of the importance of health and wellbeing.
But if your feet and legs are sore it can be very hard to undertake any activity at all. This may affect muscles and joints with heel or arch pain, tired, achy legs and feet, knee pain or hip pain.
You may start noticing skin problems such as hard skin, split heels or corns. The toenails may become brittle or thickened and hard to cut. The nails may even start to become ingrown and cause pain or infections.
Podiatrists are the foot health professionals trained to identify and treat any foot or leg problem.
We make sure your skin and nails are in good order and, if necessary, get your footwear assessed and issue orthotics or exercises to help keep your activity pain-free.
If you already have orthotics that are more than 18 months old they may need modifying or replacing before activity is increased. Foot or leg pain is not normal and you don’t have to put up with it.
Phone Roslyn Podiatry on (03) 477-8102 for an appointment with Lauren or Sally.
