Preventative care

The best way to keep your feet happy is to address problems before they start. This is particularly important if you have a condition like arthritis, or diabetes which can even put feet in danger of amputation. Also, as you age, the fat pads on your feet tend to get thinner so you don’t have as much natural cushioning to protect the bones and other structures underneath.

Different activities and sports also put different strains on your feet. Whether you like the odd game of tennis, work out at the gym or just walk regularly, it’s important that the shoes you choose give you the right kind of support. Our foot clinic in Clayfield offers guidance regarding styles of footwear, as well as expert advice on strengthening, stretching and training programs for your feet and lower legs.
