Often slightly abnormal foot biomechanics can cause significant pain and symptoms further up the chain, typically affecting the knees, hip and lower back. By assessing foot posture and movement, subtle changes can be made via custom made orthotics. It is often worth having your biomechanics assessed before buying a new pair of trainers; especially if you are symptomatic.
Foot health includes the management of corns, callous, verrucas, nail conditions and general maintenance i.e. nail clipping. It is essential that anyone with diabetes has regular footcare.
