According to The Diabetic Foot, on any given day in Australia, there are over 300,000 people at risk of developing diabetes-related foot disease (DFD) with a shocking 50,000 people are living with DFD and 12,500 people living with a diabetes-related amputation.
Podiatrists are urging parents to take big steps for their children’s feet as part of National Foot Health Week 15th – 21st October, to help Aussie kids grow up living an active and pain-free life.
In 2017 we released our inaugural Healthy Feet Survey to help bridge the information gap on foot health through examining how Australians look after their feet and lift the lid on some of the fundamental awareness issues with podiatry as a health service.
Commissioned and published by Australia’s largest podiatry groups My FootDr and Balance Podiatry, the report reveals modern lifestyle demands and ignorance are two major factors impacting on foot health.
When it comes to health, many women are great at caring for others but often put themselves last. To celebrate this year’s Women’s Health Week, 3-7 September, we will be hosting a number of free health information seminars encouraging women to put their own health and feet first.
