Feet are just there aren’t they… allowing you to stand up, and walk. Who thinks about their feet? Not many people I bet, until they hurt and start disrupting your daily life, and why bother with your feet if they don’t hurt anyway, right?
Foot pain in recent years has become more problematic for us as a shod society (shoe wearing communities) as shoe ‘technology’ increases, old fashioned treatments treat the symptoms without addressing the cause, lifestyles in the digital age has made us more chair bound, orthotics or inserts are relied upon again to treat the symptoms without addressing the cause – bit of a theme here.
I specialised in foot health because once I learnt the relationship between your foot health and whats going on up your body, it was the missing link I had been looking for.
Painful feet hurt with each and every step you take, this can take an emotional toll on your mental health, it can make you miserable, and eventually could lead to depression and anxiety.
