To have a good quality of life, we always try to take care of our body as much as we can. However, more often than not, we neglect to take notice of how we take care of our feet. Yes, we protect our feet with shoes and socks but are we doing enough such as getting Podiatrist service to make sure that our feet are properly cared for?
Our feet are the main foundation of our body since they can support our body’s weight. Without them, we will not be able to stand up, balance, or move about properly. It is therefore important that we take care of our feet and have them checked by a Podiatrist service once in a while. Narooma Medical Centre has a dedicated Podiatry department to handle all foot related issues.
Podiatry is the study of the feet, ankles and lower legs. It is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of common disorders that you may encounter from your lower leg down towards your feet.
We usually spend most of our day using our feet. Sometimes, when we get home, we may feel that our feet get sore even if we did not do a lot of walking during the day. There may be some underlying conditions why our feet are always aching. These conditions may include:
When we avail of a Podiatrist service, the podiatrist can give us an assessment as to why our feet are always aching. A Podiatrist may also assess our feet for any injuries that we might not have noticed. Remember that the weight of our body is always pounding our feet. There may be injuries and stress fractures to the bones of our feet without us even noticing. A podiatrist can also help us if we are experiencing plantar fasciitis or pain along the arch of our feet. This pain may be the result of a long injury that may only be noticeable because of our age.
Your feet deserve to get pampered every now and then. Get a Podiatrist service to assess the current health of your feet and for any disorders that you may be overlooking. We at Narooma Medical Centre will give you the best service that your feet deserve. You can contact us by calling 0244765588 / 0424204562 or setting an appointment through hotdoc.com.au.
