The 2018 Foot Health Survey by Scholl and the Australian Podiatry Association (APA) reveals three out of four Aussies admit they don’t prioritise their foot health, and one in three don’t care for their feet at all! The APA polled more than 1,000 Australians about their foot care habits and the survey demonstrates the enormous impact issues such as lower limb pain or restricted movement can have on everyday activities. With the average person walking a total of 128,000km or more in their lifetime, APA recommends regular check-ups with a podiatrist, implementing self-care by cleansing, moisturising and monitoring your feet for changes, wearing correctly fitting shoes, using insoles for extra comfort and, if your gait or movement is limited or you’re in pain, visit a podiatrist.
