Cycling is definitely in season and we want to make sure that your feet are kept healthy and happy. We will be getting some expert advice, from David Eardley, Podiatrist and Foot Specialist at the North East Foot Centre on what to consider in caring for your feet and finding the right, correctly fitting pair of cycling shoes that are good for you.
Podfo® - The world's first truly dynamic 3D printed custom foot orthotics - have been on location last week, filming a new video to show how and why they are so great. Podfo® wanted to show a clinical environment and used the North East Foot centre as the location. Look out for David Eardley too, he's featured as the clinician in the film - the obvious choice being that he's the world's first clinician to prescribe Podfo®!
Whether it’s the London Marathon, Blenheim Palace Triathlon, or the Blaydon Race, competing gives you that excitement in your chest where you know that your training is done and you’re going to give it your best!
In this piece, we explain a little about the Foot Pressure Plate and how it’s useful to our athletic friends who like to use their feet a lot.
Sports podiatry addresses pain and injuries which result from biomechanical issues typically in the lower limbs. This can be through specific sports activities or merely from when we walk or run.
Sounds simple enough, but because our foot interacts with our lower limb, it’s not just a case of treating foot pain. Sports podiatry is also involved treating injuries and ailments which may cause ankle, shin, knee, hip or lower back pain.
Over the next few days David, our lead Podiatrist at the North East Foot Centre is out and about at Staffordshire University's footwear science meeting.... here he is looking rather happy about being let out of his clinic!
