This year for  falls awareness week, the theme is healthy feet.

It is estimated that 1 in 3 people aged over 65 fall each year.

The consequences can be devastating.

Accidents can happen so easily, but many falls can be avoided by wearing correctly fitted, supportive footwear around the home. It's natural to want the comfort, warmth and easy access of slippers. Most falls that older people experience however happen within the home and such falls are often due to poorly fitting footwear, with little or no support.

Men's ToesIt's not just women who feel ashamed of thick and unsightly toe nails! many men do too!

Fungal infection, injury and the effects of poor health can cause nails to become unsighlty. When we decide to take a well deserved holiday in the sun, on the beach....what is it that we want to do?.....yes.....expose our feet....but many men wont because they feel self- conscious of their toe nails.

We have carried out many gel nail repair and reconstructions for men going on holiday. THE RESULT: A more enjoyable holiday!

So come on men, dont be shy....let us improve how your nails look and no more hiding your feet!

 So of course you do, we love shoes, don’t we ladies? (and men of course!) but so many mistakes over the years, so many shoes stuffed in the cupboard hidden away.

Why are they so uncomfortable?

'Hey but they look so good!'

The answer to avoiding these pitfalls is very simple.

  1. Know your foot type.
  2. Know your arch type.
  3. Know your pressure points.
  4. Know your foot size. (So many people unsure as feet change shape and size over time)

Armed with this information you will always be walking pain free.

A foot scan will be able to identify your foot type.

Always think 'the right shoe for the right job' so ladies (and men) you can wear those fancy high shoes but please don’t walk too far in them.

They are your “sitting and looking fab” shoes.

Happy Walking and looking good.

 

 

“Please help me I have plantar fasciitis and the pain is stopping me dancing."

 I went to See Sushila in 2010 and she prescribed some orthotics to help with the foot pain and I also bought some black patent sandals.

 My foot pain got better and I have danced and danced to funk jazz music in the sandals for 3 years.

Thank you, Sushila.I will be back for more dancing shoes.”
