Great Ideas for Foot and Lower Leg health

Life is full of opportunities that we want to grab with both hands. However a moments though on how best to protect and look after our feet and lower legs and could pay dividends in the future. Here are many great ideas that just may keep you on your feet .



Running Shoe Tips 

With pre-season sport training ramping up and New Years resolutions being written it’s a good time to start tracking the use of those new Christmas sneakers you got from Santa Claus! It is good to remember that runners only have a relatively limited life of use ranging from 600 to 1000 kilometres depending on brand and style.

Comfortable Orthotics 

When seeing patients for the first time, many of them express concerns and reservations when it comes to their orthotics. "I have orthotics but they are uncomfortable" is a comment we often hear.

Runners or Cross Trainers...Which should I buy? 

Do you know when we should be using a  running shoe and when a cross trainer would be more appropriate? Have a read of these few tips.Having worked in a technical footwear store fitting athletic footwear, I often get asked many questions about footwear. In a series of blogs over the coming months I will aim to answer some more FAQs podiatrists get relating to footwear. One of the most common questions I get asked is “can I use a runner for walking even if I don’t run?” In short, yes, you can use a running shoe if you plan on walking and don’t intend to do any running but there are some significant differences between runners and cross trainers that many of us don’t know and it is important to make sure you are using the right shoe for your desired activity.  Read More...



Football Boots 

Joel Selwood wears Asics. Wanting to find the right football boot for you?With local football well and truly underway, it still comes a bit of a surprise that many avid footballers are yet to invest in a good football boot. Over the weekend I witnessed a couple of season ending injuries to a couple of great suburban footballers.

These injuries may have been prevented or at the very least the degree of damage may have been reduced if the appropriate footwear were being used. Selecting the right football boot in regards to stability and support can be hugely important in minimising injuries and there is one brand in particular does it better then most. Read More...
