As well as helping a number of children with their foot health issues (which prompted a blog), I have been asked to give various talks and presentations. I have also written several articles for podiatrists to share my expertise in relation to treatments for cancer patients.
In the talks section you will find a short video explaining how pregnancy can affect your foot health, which covers five key areas :
- ingrown toenails
- hard skin and corns
- fungal infections including athlete’s foot
- plantar fasciitis
- basic toe and ankle injuries
All of these can be problematic during pregnancy due to the various changes that are taking place in the body. We quite often find patients who have never seen a podiatrist before needing a little extra help during this time.
