Our incredibly designed and extremely hard-working feet are so often the most overlooked part of the body when it comes to health matters - and they deserve better!
On an average day - if you walk between 8-10,000 steps - your feet will have carried the weight of a blue whale! It's no wonder they can feel tired and sore at the end of a long day!
Our team have seen it all, so if you're at all self-conscious about introducing your amazing feet to the team please don't be! We have a passion for what we do, and love our job and get huge satisfaction from improving our patients comfort, indepencance and quality-of-life.
