What is National Feet Week?
National Feet Week is taking place from 8th to 14th March encouraging people of all ages to prioritise foot health. The majority of people will automatically book regular check-ups at the dentist or optician, but how often do those same people consider the benefits of an annual foot examination?
Podiatrists are keen to encourage people not to ignore common foot complaints which can lead to serious issues and pain. Fungal nail infections, corns, heel pain and hard skin can all be routinely treated giving feet a new lease of life. It is not to be underestimated how heavenly healthy feet can feel with a bit of extra tender loving care.
How can I get involved?
When posting on social media use the hashtags #NationalFeetWeek and #Letstalkaboutfeet. This will help raise awareness. Join in the #LaceRace! All you need is a pair of luminous yellow laces, a stopwatch and someone to take a video!
Take a look at the video of our Lead Podiatrist, Jonathan Small, running the Lace Race Challenge with his Dragonboat Racing Club Pershore Phoenix:
