What Is A Foot Health Practitioner?

A Foot Health Practitioner is trained to help with a wide range of foot problems; this is through treatments for sore and problem areas and expert foot health advice to ensure you stay as mobile and pain free as possible.

Mobility is perhaps the most significant element of life that changes as the years’ progress. Restrictions in mobility can be due to any one of many reasons, but problems with the feet are very often the cause.

Your practitioner will begin by assessing, diagnosing and then treating your condition. Generally, the origins of foot complaints stem from one of three areas of cause, structural abnormalities, exposure to infection or systemic illness. Some problems are more common than others and some are easier to treat than others.
