When it comes to looking after your health, it’s easy to forget about your feet. But given you could walk about 128,000 km in your lifetime, healthy feet are an important part of your overall wellbeing. Foot problems can have a huge impact on your quality of life. If they occur, podiatrists can help.
Podiatrists are the foot experts. Anything that affects the feet, your Podiatrist can treat, or give advice on. Podiatrists are also the gait experts.
