National Feet Week

The Podiatry Team

To celebrate National Feet Week which is taking place from 8th – 14th March, The Team at the Forest Foot and Health Clinic are encouraging the people of the New Forest and surrounding areas to get their feet checked.

Many people choose to ignore common foot complaints which can lead to serious issues and pain and many will suffer in silence. This can lead to easily treatable common foot complaints becoming more serious and affecting overall health and wellbeing. A podiatrist is an expert in foot health and the best person to turn to when experiencing fungal nail infections, corns, heel pain and hard skin or indeed any other symptoms relating to the feet.

Most conditions can all be routinely treated giving feet a new lease of life and avoiding pain and discomfort from reoccurring. It is not to be underestimated how heavenly healthy feet can feel with a bit of extra tender loving care.
