"I first visited Soft Soles Podiatry to have a look at my painful corns and calluses on the sides and soles/balls of my feet.
I have suffered from corns and calluses for a long time due to my long-distance running and intensive badminton training regimes. Also, I sustained a bad sprain to my left peroneus longus and left tibialis anterior tendon whilst playing golf in May 2012, which had aggravated the growth of the corns and calluses on my feet during my injury rehabilitation.
I have tried, with little success, different kinds of over-the-counter pads and cushions to help alleviate the pain on my feet. I have also resorted to buying larger sized trainers and shoes with the thinking (sadly, erroneously!) that these will reduce the rubbing against the painful corns on my feet during walking and exercising.”
Smelly feet (aka Bromodosis) are often caused by more than just poor foot hygiene and management. That makes it easy to swiftly improve your foot health with a step-by-step regime. By treating the feet, socks, and shoes collectively, steady progress will be made. You may also consolidate this and achieve lasting results by incorporating improved dietary habits and lifestyle choices.
Serving as the base of support for your body, your feet are crucial for good balance. From your toes to your muscles, tendons, and ligaments, they help you to maintain balance as you walk or stand. The height-to-foot-size ratio shows that the taller you are, the larger your base of support, i.e. your shoe size.
According to the University of Rhode Island Department of Electrical, Computing, and Biomedical Engineering, the average height-to-foot ratio is about 6.6 inches of height for every inch of foot length. Understanding that this ratio is just an estimation and many people have larger or smaller feet than this would suggest, we take your height and your physical needs into account when providing personalised podiatry services.
A client says… “Michael is very knowledgeable about foot problems, offers solutions to them, and tries to 'educate' clients on the importance of proper foot care in a way that they will remember the advice - I now know how to tie my shoelaces correctly (!), and I have bought two good pairs of supporting socks that are appropriate for my needs.”
