How to prevent feet issues.

Choose the right footwear: Wearing shoes that fit properly and provide adequate support is key to preventing foot issues. Make sure your shoes are the correct size and provide enough arch support and cushioning.

Maintain good foot hygiene: Keeping your feet clean and dry is important to prevent fungal infections and other foot issues. Wash your feet daily, dry them thoroughly, and apply foot powder to absorb moisture.

Stretch your feet: Stretching your feet and toes can help prevent stiffness and improve flexibility. Incorporate foot and toe stretches into your daily routine.

Maintain a healthy weight: Excess weight can put added stress on your feet, leading to pain and other issues. Maintaining a healthy weight can help prevent these issues.

Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can help improve circulation and keep your feet healthy. Walking, jogging, and swimming are all great forms of exercise that can benefit your feet.

Seek medical attention when necessary: If you experience persistent foot pain or other issues, it’s important to seek medical attention. A podiatrist can help diagnose and treat foot issues, and may recommend orthotics or other treatments to prevent future problems.

Covid-19 Update

What are we doing to protect you?

During lockdown there has been much soul searching and questioning if I should continue in Practice or not, given the level of investment required and the measures we must implement to ensure the safety of everyone. Although it will not be easy, I have decided not to be beaten and to continue with The Footings and make it as safe a practice as it could possibly be!  In future when attending clinic, you will be asked to:

 • Stand on a disinfectant mat 

• Use the hand gel provided

 • Put on a mask provided 

The Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) worn by the Podiatrist will consist of: 

• Scrubs 

• Disposable apron

• Face Mask 

• Safety Glasses 

• Mop cap 

• Disposable Gloves 

Only one person will be allowed on the premises at a time to ensure Social Distancing unless you are from the same household, or the patient requires a carer. 

• HEPA filtration unit will be constantly on during clinical sessions. 

• Deep Cleaning equipment is to be used at the end of each treatment 

• Whole room Disinfectant Fogging at the end of each session.

 • Sneeze Screens are being installed both in clinical rooms and Reception area to further ensure safety. 

As I am sure you appreciate these measures are gold standard and are being implemented to ensure safety for all concerned. As a result, I have no choice but to implement an increase in fees to reflect that standard. Therefore, Podiatry fees for consultation plus treatment will be £55. Appointments are now being prioritised for the most at risk patients, but extra clinics are being made available so we can catch up with everyone soon.
