Probably, you have experienced foot pain or have had a foot disease. Podiatry can prevent a problem to become chronic and remove the pain from quotidian activities.

Having a good foot health means enjoying life: walking on the beach, practising sports, climb a mountain and join the surroundings, scroll through the streets of a new city and going anywhere you please. Don't you think podiatry can benefit your lifestyle?

South London Podiatry, all about foot care

Foot care

Foot care starts by taking care about your own foot. In South London Podiatry, we think that feet should be cared the same way we do with hands, body and face. Non-cared feet can be unpleasant and cause problems that can affect our gait.

Some common foot problems, like cracked heels can be prevented just by moisturising heels with creams weekly or filing your foot with a pumice stone; or also, you can prevent callus by using comfy shoes. In South London Podiatry, we are more than willing to give you tips and assess you, that’s why we try to publish new tips in our podiatry blog.
