According to the NHS, the average Briton walks between 3,000 and 4,000 steps every day. Having this figure in mind, it is easy to understand that over the course of a lifetime, our feet and lower limbs endure considerable strain. As a result, foot discomfort and pain affect a large percentage of the UK’s population, and if left untreated, these conditions can interfere with your daily routine. The good news is that you don’t have to live with these limitations, as Associated Chiropody Services offers a range of effective treatments and podiatry services that can prevent and alleviate foot-related conditions.
Our feet are an incredibly complex part of our bodies: there are 26 bones and over 100 ligaments in each foot, and our soles have more than 200,000 nerve endings in them. Qualified podiatrists and chiropodists are equipped with the knowledge and tools to diagnose and treat common foot problems effectively, therefore helping make vast improvements to the quality of your life. Moreover, professional podiatry services can also be beneficial when it comes to preventative foot care. An experienced podiatrist can provide personalised advice on the most suitable feet hygiene routines and footwear for your lifestyle and needs.
