Foot Health Practitioner

A Foot Health Practitioner (FHP) is someone who is qualified to assess, treat and improve a variety of foot conditions. Feet should be routinely serviced at least once a year – after all your feet support you over your whole lifetime. They walk 3.5 times round the world – that is a lot of steps!

A regular trip to a Foot Health Practitioner will mean that things that may seem insignificant can be nipped in the bud at the start.

Like visiting the Dentist, the Foot Health Practitioner should be a bi-annual routine check up for your feet.  Don’t ignore any pain or pinching as foot issues normally escalate.
