If you’re looking after a person with diabetes, whether you’re a family member or a health professional or assistant, you play an important role in helping that person maintain their foot and leg health by ensuring they receive regular podiatry care.
With the growing popularity of barefoot running shoes and our love as a nation for hitting our beautiful beaches when the sun is out, there’s one question that we often get asked as podiatrists: is barefoot walking bad for our feet?
If your New Year’s resolution revolves around staying fit and healthy, then having healthy feet is the perfect place to start. Without being able to walk and move comfortably, it’s easy to lose all the exercise plans and motivation you have right now! To help you start the year off on the right foot, we’ve put together eight simple, powerful and often overlooked tips to help keep your feet healthy. Follow them regularly, and if you need help, get in touch with us here.
If you thought that trimming toenails, analysing your walking pattern or making you custom orthotics was all that we offer here at My FootDr – think again! Our innovative team offers a range of world-class and often unexpected services across Australia that go far beyond what many people perceive to be ‘normal’ podiatry. Today, we’re highlighting ten of our services that you probably never knew we can help you with.
For a company committed to “healthy feet, better lives”, seeing Australian communities and individuals struggling with debilitating foot problems while not having the means to change their situation is devastating. With over 300,000 Australians trusting My FootDr to care for their feet every year, helping disadvantaged families with their lifelong form of mobility – their feet – is close to our hearts. So, for the past year, we’ve been working alongside Footscape to make a real difference for many – and we couldn’t be happier with what we have achieved together so far.
Your feet are the foundation for the way you live your life. Those who don’t take care of their feet may end up paying for it down the track.
