First Steps At Fitter Feet For Life
This website is packed full of information about us and about foot conditions we deal with. We hope that the menus at the top of each page will get you quickly to the information you want, but we always suggest that you phone our knowledgeable reception staff.
Just explain the problems you are experiencing and they will either book the correct appointment for you, or have a podiatrist phone you to clarify the treatments we can offer you.
If you are unsure of how to proceed, our reception staff can also book you a ‘free foot check’ appointment to establish the source of your problem and then arrange the correct course of treatment.
The Fitter Feet For Life Experience
Your free foot check may immediately suggest a course of action. In other cases, Fitter Feet For Life, as health care professionals, will offer you an initial consultation at which we will take a full medical history and do basic tests such as checking the blood circulation and feeling in your feet. We also check the way you walk and move your lower leg joints, using video slow motion gait analysis.
We will discuss your concerns with you and then make a diagnosis and treatment plan.
The session is usually completely painless and takes 45 minutes.
How does Diabetes affect my feet?
One of the first ways in which diabetes may affect your feet is through the loss of sensation within your feet, often starting at the toes. You may experience a cotton wool like feeling or numbness in your feet, this is called neuropathy. Your chances of losing feeling in your feet increases with the number of years that you have diabetes and research suggests that up to one in three people with diabetes have some loss of sensation (called neuropathy).
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a condition that causes inflammation in many joints of the body. Unlike osteoarthritis which is caused by wear and tear, rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease where a faulty immune system attacks the tissue that lines and cushions the joints, leaving them swollen, painful and stiff.
