We already know that our feet are the foundations of our body and undertake a monumental amount of work every day just to get us from A to B – and back again.
But did you also know that to compensate for the huge forces they endure, our feet actually adapt their shape and function three times during each step. This demand places a huge amount of stress through the joints, ligaments and tendons in our foot and lower leg.
So it’s no surprise that injury to the foot is extremely common and in the UK there are far too few specialists to help when things go wrong. This is where Footfocus can really help. Footfocus is a specialist Podiatry Clinic run by Aengus Shanahan
