A note for GP's
We’ve just published a patient communication to help them help themselves to healthier feet, in a preventative way, before problems start.
Feet that ‘feel’ good inspire and support movement. So why aren’t more people ‘foot healthy’ and moving?
‘Out of sight, out of mind’:
Sadly, this is very true for one’s feet. Human beings ignore their feet until there’s a problem. As you know, the results can be chronic problems with ankles, knees, hips, back and neck, which can impact overall health and wellbeing.
Cramming more into your 10-minute consultations isn’t the answer – Patient behaviour change is.
At Fitter Feet for life, we would like to help you educate your patients:
- To see and recognise the signs of a developing problem,
- and To have the confidence to say something and seek your advice sooner.
Patient awareness and participation in the care of their own feet is key to healthier feet.3 Easy Steps Download the patient communication (PDF)
