Walking & Hiking
Hippocrates (c. 460 – c. 370 BC), was a Greek physician who is often referred to as the "Father of Western Medicine”. At Total Care Podiatry we very much agree with his philosophy that “walking is the best medicine”!
We love to see people out walking, enjoying the great place we live in and we do our best to assist them in this activity. Sometimes we need to address aches and pains, providing advice on footwear or tailoring an exercise program to help ensure your walking is pain-free and enjoyable.
Bushwalking, hiking and endurance walking take this exercise to the next level and have some specific issues that need to be addressed. Most common are those dreaded blisters! Paul has been helping people explore the great outdoors for over 25 years, providing Information sessions to the Geelong Bushwalking club and pre-trek foot checks for walkers participating in the 2016 40km Surf Coast Trek.
At the 32km point of the Surf Coast Trek many walkers were very glad of our foot & leg first-aid to get to the end. Whatever type of walking you love doing, if you have any discomfort, let us help get you back on the trail smiling!
