This week saw our 6000th patient register for assessment/treatment at Health First Foot & Gait Clinic in Southam, Warwickshire
Yes 6000 is a large number, but not as large a number as the nearly 12000 different feet (allowing for the occasional missing foot/leg) of which we have checked the vascularity (circulation) for instance, or the over 100,000 different toes that have been looked at for signs of dermatological (skin) problems.
Big numbers indeed. But what do they mean? Well to us, it means that we have fixed a lot of feet and helped to keep a lot of people mobile & pain-free, which enables them to enjoy a quality of life that they couldn’t before they came to see us.
That makes us happy. And it makes them happy too and they kindly leave us reviews such as this:
“Very professional and friendly service – solved my foot problems where many others had failed -highly recommended.”
For any fans of the TV Series Red Dwarf, you may remember this: “I am Holly, the ship’s computer, with an IQ of 6000”
Now fixing foot-related problems doesn’t require an IQ of 6000, but it’s certainly not a simple job. The foot consists of 26 bones, 33 joints, and hundreds of ligaments and muscles, all encased by some of the most complex skin structure on our bodies. As Podiatrists (Foot Specialist), we spend our lives learning about, dealing with, and resolving symptoms associated with this fascinating part of us.
So if you know of anyone with a foot or gait (walking/running) problem, then point them in the direction of our helpful FREE resource where they can find useful information and guidance
