Timeline PhotosWelcome to Foot Health Week 2019!

This week, feet come first! For the next 7 days we are working with podiatrists all around Australia to spread awareness of just how important your feet are. Foot conditions heavily impact our health and our communities and as university-trained lower limb experts, podiatrists are as important as ever in reducing and reversing this impact. Podiatrists are trained to diagnose, treat and maintain your feet to help you get back to living your life pain-free.

Over the coming days keep an eye out on this page to learn the impact of foot health and how a podiatrist can help you. We will also share some tips and advice on things such as symptoms to look out for, how to take care of your feet, and when to take a visit to your local podiatrist.

Additionally, podiatrists all over Australia are hosting events and stalls, giving free foot checks, advice and spreading the message with the community. So everyone, STAND UP FOR YOUR HEALTH! This week Find Out Where Your Feet Fit In 👣
