What is a Foot Health Practioner?
A Foot Health Practioner is a qualified to provide routine foot care and maintenance for your feet. They can assess the conditions of your feet and treat as appropriate and refer you if necessary.
Our feet are with us our whole lifetime and more people need some form of simple foot are to maintain the well being of their feet and ensure they remain mobile and have an excellent quality of life. Having diabetes means that the well being of your feet is of even greater importance and a FHP can provide a service where your feet are well maintained and any troublesome conditions can be spotted in their infancy and referred on.
Foot problem are very common and can effect every one of all ages. From corns and calluses to bunions and hammertoes, what often may appear as something small and insignificant, can pose great difficulties with footwear and with many daily activities like work and excercise.
Additional problems may complicate matters such as diabetes and poor circulation. With regular footcare foot problems can be prevented. Looking after your feet is one of the most important aspects of personal health care whatever your age. During your lifetime your feet could walk the equivalent of four times around the world.
When we are young the joints and ligaments in our feet readily adapt to the shock of absorbing our weight. As we grow older structural changes like bunions and hammertoes can afflict these joints and limit their range of movement. Ligament and tendons become less flexible and the foot needs more support and padding to adapt to the strain of carrying you around.
To make sure that your feet stay healthy you need to look after them, keeping them clean warm and well supported. Caring for the feet is important to avoid foot pain as well as foot problems in the future.

How it works
Sessions last for approximately 1 hour. Clients are fully awake and fully clothed (apart from removing footwear).
Many people with foot and mobility problems find it difficult to attend clinic appointments and welcome the convenience of receiving therapy in the comfort and convenience of their own home.
Even for people who can attend a clinic, the fact that your feet are pain-free and you’re relaxed and de-stressed is made even better because you haven’t got to travel home again.
You don’t need to provide anything. I bring all the sterilised equipment and towels I will need and use a fresh set for each client I see.
I bring my own dressings and can provide podiatry socks and aids as required.
I am registered as a 'Dementia Friend' and am gentle, patient and understanding of the various health concerns of my clients.
Happy feet mean happy people!
