Today is World Diabetes Day! Diabetic foot care is crucial in the world of podiatry. Diabetes can affect the feet in different ways, including affecting the blood circulation and sensation of the feet. These changes can lead to other issues with the feet, which can sometimes be irreversible. #worlddiabetesday2023 #diabeticpodiatry #diabeticfootcare #diabetesawareness

Due to the extreme weather today, I have made the decision to close the clinic today and cancel any appointments booked in. All those that had appointments have been contacted 😊 Please stay safe out there! The roads are very dangerous with flooding and trees down. Stay safe and warm 🤗 Lucy ❤️ 👣

Last-minute appointments are available today in Faversham! 10am 11am 1pm Get in touch this morning to get booked in 😊 Lucy 👣 ❤️

Hi everyone, Just a quick post to let you know I'm having some technical issues! My laptop has needed to be sent away to be fixed, so I'm working from a tablet and my phone, so please bear with me 😊 Because of this, I'm unable to access some parts of my patient booking system, so I'm unable to produce invoices or digital receipts until it's back 😖 Sorry for any inconvenience Lucy ❤️ 👣

🤩Fun Fact Friday!🤩 Did you know?! The first pair of shoes date bac to 3,500BC! 😱 They were found in an Armenian cave, they were made of old leather shoe and somewhat resembles a modern shoe. Perhaps we should have come further in the past 5,500 years? As mentioned in my previous Fun Facts post, footwear is very important. Having the correct, supportive footwear is key to ensuring the feet are correctly supported and stable when walking, running or even in the office!

👣👣Terminology Tuesday👣👣 The A-Z of Podiatry This week's condition is Gout! Gout is a painful form of arthritis. When your body has extra uric acid, sharp crystals can form in your joints (usually your big toe). Flare-ups of symptoms like pain and swelling come and go in periods called gout attacks. Treatment is usually a combination of symptom management and changing your diet but can also involve medication and physical removal of the Gouty Tophi (buildup in the joint) If you would like any further advice on treatment for Gout, please contact the clinic during normal opening hours on the details below.

🤩Fun Fact Friday!🤩 Did you know?! When you run, your feet take up to 5 times your body weight in pressure! Footwear is incredibly important when exercising. You must make sure you wear comfortable shoes that are shock absorbent, especially when jogging and running. We recommend that you buy your shoes in person so you can try them on to ensure a comfortable fit. If your shoes hurt when you first put them on, chances are they are not the right pair for you. If you would like any advice on your footwear, please contact the clinic during opening hours on the details below.

👣👣Terminology Tuesday👣👣 The A-Z of Podiatry The condition of the week is Fungal Toenails! Fungal nail infections are very common and not serious. However, they can take a long time to resolve. Fungal nail infections sometimes start at the edge of the nail, the infection often then spreads to the middle of the nail, making the nail discoloured and sometimes thicker in parts. The nail can also become brittle and pieces can break off. Sometimes the whole nail lifts off, causing pain and swelling in the skin around the nail. Fungal nail infections often develop when your feet are constantly warm and damp. You're more likely to get an infection if you wear trainers for a long time and have hot, sweaty feet. There are a variety of treatment options for fungal nail infection, including over the counter treatments and more advanced clinical treatments provided here at Easy Feet Podiatry.

🤩Fun Fact Friday!🤩 Did you know?! The average person walks 110,000 miles in their lifetime!! That’s the equivalent of walking from Glasgow to London 860 times over! As a keen walker myself, I understand the impact walking (especially long distance walking) can have on the feet. They need lots of TLC when they are under lots of pressure. Lots of people come to have podiatric treatment as routine foot management for a variety of issues. Mostly nail trimming and callus removal due to friction and pressure build up caused by day to day walking and moving.

👣👣Terminology Tuesday👣👣 The A-Z of Podiatry This week the condition ill be talking about is Eczema. Eczema is a very common skin condition that causes the skin to become itchy, dry and cracked. It is more common in children but can also develop in adults too. It's usually a long-term (chronic) condition, although it can improve significantly, or even clear completely. Eczema can affect the feet by causing dry, flakey, inflamed patches of skin. This can cause irritation, open wounds and cause the individual to become more susceptible to skin infections A common condition that affects the hands and feet is Dyshidrotic Eczema. This type of eczema causes itchy, fluid filled blisters on the hands or feet that come and go. The symptoms usually last 2 to 3 weeks at a time. The first symptom is often a burning or prickling feeling in the affected area. It can be treated with moisturisers and steroid creams that are prescribed by your GP If you need any further information, or would like to book an appointment, please contact the clinic during opening hours on the details below or book online.

🤩Fun Fact Friday!🤩 Did you know?! Abnormalities, pain, growths, and other issues with your feet can represent systems of other diseases. There are many different indicators in your feet that can suggest something more serious, even something simple such as the loss of hair on your feet- if you have hairy feet to begin with that is!

👣👣Terminology Tuesday👣👣 The A-Z of Podiatry This week the letter is D and the word is Diabetes Diabetes is one of the most common medical conditions in the world. Currently, more than 5 million people in the UK alone are living with Diabetes (this is an all time high!) There are 2 types of diabetes, Type 1- where your body cannot make insulin and Type 2- also known as insulin resistance, where your body cant make enough insulin or what it does make, doesn't work effectively. Type 2 diabetes is the most common- with around 90% of people diagnosed as having type 2. The risk factors of type 2 diabetes are multiple and complex. They include age, family history and ethnicity, as well as living with weight issues. Research has consistently shown that for some people, combined lifestyle interventions - including diet, physical activity and sustained weight loss - can be effective in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes by about 50%. There are a variety of foot complications that can arise due to diabetes, this can range anywhere from diminished sensation in the feet and reduced blood supply, to infections and the more severe, amputations. If you would like some more information about this or you would like to book an appointment to get your feet checked, please get in touch with the clinic today via telephone or email.

🤩Fun Fact Friday!🤩 Did you know?! Thanks to the 8,000 nerve endings in the soles of the feet, they are one of the most ticklish parts of the human body! But don’t worry, having ticklish feet can be a good sign; reduced sensitivity could be a symptom of neuropathy which is a medical condition often (but not always) linked to diabetes.

👣👣Terminology Tuesday👣👣 The A-Z of Podiatry This week is the letter C and the word is Cracked Heels! Cracked heels are one of the most common conditions that I see within the clinic, especially coming into the summer months when individuals are more likely to be wearing open sandals or flipflops. Cracked heels are caused by the callus build up not being able to move flexibly to accommodate the movement of the foot. The skin then cracks to allow this movement to occur. Some individuals suffer with cracked heels more than others. Cracked heels can be treated easily using a scalpel to remove and thick, hard skin, filed to smooth using an abrasive paddle file and then regular moisturisation of the feet using a Urea based foot cream. At Easy Feet Podiatry, I recommend Flexitol or Dermatonics as my 'go to' foot creams. If you have any questions about cracked heels, or would like to book an appointment, please contact the clinic on the details below.

Fun Fact Friday! Did you know??? Nearly 1/4 of all the bones within our bodies are located in the feet! With 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles, 10 tendons, and 107 ligaments in each foot, they’re intricate pieces of work! This is why it’s so important to look after them as they have a lot of delicate moving parts! If you have any questions about your feet, please do contact the clinic during opening hours.

👣👣Terminology Tuesday👣👣 The A-Z of Podiatry This week the topic is Bunions A Bunion (or Hallux Valgus to a podiatrist) are bony lumps that form on the sides of the big toes. This deformity is caused by a shift in the angle at the base of the big toe joint, causing it to develop and move sideways, pushing the big toe towards to the smaller toes. Bunions can be genetic (so you can thank your parents, or grandparents!) but they can also be caused by joint problems caused by osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid arthritis. unfortunately, its unclear why most bunions develop. Bunions can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the big toe joint. It can cause issues with walking and being able to find wide enough shoes to accommodate the bunion deformity. Individuals who suffer with bunions should ensure they wear wide fitting, comfortable footwear that have laces or velcro straps to ensure correct fastening. Bunion pads can provide protection from the pressure in shoes, these are available from your local podiatrist or chemist. Pain killers may help reduce any pain and inflammation experienced with bunions. A GP or pharmacist can help with this. You may be referred by your GP or local podiatrist to a podiatric surgeon if other treatments have not helped and your bunions are getting worse. The operation wont return your foot to normal but most people find that it reduces their symptoms and improves the shape of the foot. For more information, contact the clinic during opening hours.

Fun Fact Friday! Did you know??? Your feet can sweat up to half a pint of sweat in 1 day 😳😳 This is due to the 250,000 sweat glands in your feet, which can also result in smelly feet 🤢 There are ways to work around this, such as washing them daily with soap and water (ensuring you dry them thoroughly), removing hard skin from the soles of your feet, changing socks every day, and avoiding nylon socks. A podiatrist will be able to help with some of these tasks too.

This week I am starting Terminology Tuesday going through the A-Z of Podiatry! This week we are starting with Athletes Foot Athletes foot is a fungal skin infection, most commonly found on the soles of the feet and in between the little toes. Athletes foot is commonly seen in individuals who regularly take part in physical activities. It can also occur in individuals who do not change their shoes/socks regularly and those who are unable to dry adequately between their toes. This condition is easily treated with medication in the form of spray, cream or powder. Socks and shoes must be treated with an Anti-fungal spray too to kill any remaining fungal spores- if this isn't done, you may end up re-infecting yourself!

Calling all fashionistas! As a podiatrist, I'm here to remind you that your shoe choices can have a big impact on your foot health. High heels in particular, can be a major culprit in foot and ankle pain. They can also cause other issues such as calluses, corns and bunions! Wearing heels for extended periods of time can cause a host of foot issues, including Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis and even Stress Fractures! If you do wear high heels, try to limit your time in them and choose lower height heels with a wider base for better stability. When it comes to everyday footwear, make sure your shoes fit properly and have good arch support to prevent issues like Flat Feet and Plantar Fasciitis. Don't forget to alternate your shoes daily to give your feet a break and allow your shoes to air! If you have any questions, concerns or would like to book an appointment, please contact the clinic during opening hours on 07904423371. 🗓 Booking available via website, WhatsApp, Phone, Email or Direct Message 📞 07904423371 🌍 www.easyfeetpodiatry.co.uk 📧 [email protected] 📍Garages 1-2 The Courtyard, Mersham-le-Hatch Business Village, TN25 6NH #foothealthweek2023 #fhw #footwear #highheels #fashion #foothealth #ashfordkent #treatmentplan #footcare #faversham #favershamkent #crackedheels #kent #podiatryclinic #podiatry #podiatryuk #chiropody #podsfixfeet #ashford #podiatrist #verrucatreatment #verrucaremoval #verrucae #fungalnails #verruca #ingrowingtoenail

Hey there, over 55s! Did you know that taking care of your feet is especially important as you age? As a fully qualified podiatrist, I have seen in the clinic how foot problems can limit your mobility and independence, but they don't have to! Regular foot care such as nail cutting and and moisturising the skin, can help with preventing issues like dry skin, corns and calluses. Wearing comfortable, well-fitting shoes can also reduce the risk of falls and foot injuries. If you are experiencing any foot pain or discomfort, don't wait to seek treatment- Early intervention is key to preventing more serious issues! Come and see me in the clinic in Ashford or Faversham for a full foot assessment and tailored treatment plan to help keep you active and on your feet for longer.

As a podiatrist, I know that swimming is an excellent form of exercise that offers numerous health benefits. However, if you're a regular swimmer, it is essential to take care of your feet to avoid problems such as Athlete's Foot and Toenail Fungus. Here are some top tips for maintaining healthy feet while swimming: 1) Wear pool shoes or flip-flops in the locker room and around the pool to avoid the exposure to potential bacteria and fungi. 2) Dry your feet thoroughly after swimming, especially between the toes. 3) If needed, apply anti-fungal powder or spray to your feet before putting on socks and shoes. 4) Avoid sharing towels, shoes or other personal items with others. 5) Consider wearing water shoes while swimming to provide extra support and protection. Remember, taking care of your feet is crucial for enjoying the benefits of swimming without experiencing pain or discomfort. If you have any concerns about your foot health, please don't hesitate to contact the clinic on 07904423371 or email [email protected] Lucy ❤👣 🗓 Booking available via website, WhatsApp, Phone, Email or Direct Message 📞 07904423371 🌍 www.easyfeetpodiatry.co.uk 📧 [email protected] 📍Garages 1-2 The Courtyard, Mersham-le-Hatch Business Village, TN25 6NH #swimming #foothealth #podiatry #foothealthweek23 #fhw #foothealth #ashfordkent #treatmentplan #footcare #faversham #favershamkent #crackedheels #kent #podiatryclinic #podiatry #podiatryuk #chiropody #podsfixfeet #ashford #podiatrist #verrucatreatment #verrucaremoval #fungalnails #verrucae #verruca #ingrowingtoenail

Hey runners! Are you experiencing foot pain or discomfort while logging those miles or training for a big run? As a podiatrist, I know that running can take a toll on your feet and lead to injuries if you're not careful. You should make sure that you have the right shoes for your foot type and running style, and replace them regularly to prevent wear and tear. Warming up properly before your runs and stretching afterwards will prevent tight muscles, tendons and injuries. If you do experience any foot pain, don't ignore it- early treatment is key to preventing more serious injuries! Come and see me in the clinic in Ashford or Faversham for a foot assessment and personalised treatment plan to keep you running strong and pain-free. Lets work together to help you achieve your running goals!

Attention all parents and caregivers! Did you know that proper footcare is essential for your child's overall health, wellbeing and development? As a podiatrist, I have seen firsthand how foot problems in childhood can lead to long-term foot care issues. Here are some of my top tips: 1) Make sure your child's shoes fit correctly and are appropriate for their activities. 2) Check your child's feet regularly for any signs of discomfort such as blisters, redness or swelling. 3) Encourage your child to participate in activities that promote foot strength such as walking barefoot on different surfaces and doing toe raises. If you notice any foot or ankle issues, do not hesitate to contact the clinic for an assessment and treatment. We will work together to ensure your child's feet stay healthy and strong for a lifetime of activity and fun!

Onyfix Nail Correction Treatment is a new, innovative treatment for mild ingrowing toenails and mild to severe involuted (curved) nails! The treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and the band application is simple. The Onyfix Nail Correction bands are a composite band that is cured onto the widest part of the nail using a blue UV light. This band holds the nail at its widest part and encourages the nail to grow in a flatter shape. If you have any concerns with your toenails, if they dig in or you think they might be ingrowing, please contact the clinic for more information on Onyfix Nail Correction Treatment. 🗓 Booking available via website, WhatsApp, Phone, Email or Direct Message 📞 07904423371 🌍 www.easyfeetpodiatry.co.uk 📧 [email protected] 📍Garages 1-2 The Courtyard, Mersham-le-Hatch Business Village, TN25 6NH #foothealth #ashfordkent #treatmentplan #footcare #faversham #favershamkent #crackedheels #kent #podiatryclinic #podiatry #podiatryuk #chiropody #podsfixfeet #ashford #podiatrist #fungalnails #ingrowingtoenail #involutednails #onyfix #onyfixnailcorrection
