Welcome to 2012

Well another New Year over, and we are straight into 2012.  At least this year has not started with the disasters of 2011.  No horrific floods or bush fires, so we are grateful for some small mercies.  As you sit back and think about what you want to do and achieve over the next coming year, give some thought for those 2 little things at the end of your legs, YES your feet.  Over the Christmas break, I stupidly stood on a rusty nail while removing christmas lights off my house.  Thank goodness my tetanus status is current, or I really would have been in a pickle!  But this puncture wound did ruin my holiday break.  You don’t realise until you can’t walk, how important your feet are!

I spent 2 weeks hobbling and limping, while trying to get around, this of course affected my lower back, so I was aching to two areas of my body, what a lot of fun.  So, you are thinking, what is the point of these ramblings? You should look after your feet! When they are painful, your mobility and therefore your independence is extremely limited.  So as you go to the dentist every 6 months, I would highly recommend you see a Podiatrist every 6 months for a ‘foot health check’.  We can see if you are wearing the correct footwear for your foot type, alleviate any symptoms you may be having ( as a recently study revealed, 87% of all adults suffer from foot pain at least once a year), and we can keep you comfortable and mobile.

Most of all look after yourself, and those you love, hope everyone has a brilliant 2012, full of health, wealth and happiness!!

We have HICAPS available in our clinic, which means that our patients can claim from their private health fund straight away
