Definition of Foot Care
Foot care involves all aspects of preventative and corrective care of the foot.
During an average lifetime, each person walks about 115,000 miles and three-quarters of people have foot problems at some point in their lives.
Foot problems can arise from wearing ill-fitting shoes, from general wear and tear, as a result of injury, or as a complication of disease. People with diabetes or circulatory diseases are 20 times more likely to have foot problems than the general public.
Foot care is preventative and should be on-going throughout a persons life. We recommend you visit a Foot Health Practitioner or Chiropodist any where between 4 – 12 weeks depending on the severity of the condition. At Feet First if we believe your condition is more serious then we are able to refer you on to a fully qualified and HPC Registered Podiatrist.
