Each of our feet consists of 26 bones, supported by a network of ligaments, muscles, blood vessels and nerves. They carry us the equivalent of five times around the earth in an average lifetime. The average adult takes 4,000 to 6,000 steps per day, so it is important that you look after them. At the Colchester Podiatry clinic specialist podiatry and chiropody treatments are available to make sure that your feet are in excellent condition.
Along with our eyes and hands, our feet do more work than most parts of our body, so it is little wonder that things sometimes go wrong. Our feet are also mirrors of our general health. Signs of arthritis, diabetes, circulatory and neurological diseases, often appear first in the feet. Problems affecting the foot can lead to discomfort, pain, reduction or loss of mobility and loss of time from work. Prompt foot care is essential to healthy, painless feet and should be as much a part of your daily routine as brushing your teeth.
Your First Treatment
The first time you visit the practice the Podiatrist will take a thorough history of your foot problem, examine your feet and take details of your medical history which may be relevant to your foot problems. Please allow 30 mins for the appointment at which you will receive treatment.
