One of Total Foot Health’s patients is training, along with a group of local people, to walk to Machu Picchu in aid of the Stars Appeal. Not only does this involve a gruelling walking challenge, but they are also raising thousands of pounds for the Stars Appeal. Elizabeth talked to this intrepid group at Cotswold Outdoor about how to ensure that their feet were fit and strong and able to carry them all the way! This involved education on what to look for when fitting walking boots and how to lace them. There was also emphasis on socks, nail care and how to prevent blisters.
We are always happy to talk to groups about foot health, especially if a local charity is involved – just let us know.
