Corn Be Gone

Mrs G from Baldock was just about to give up on her walking hobby. It was too painful to go very far, and none of the podiatrists she had seen had been able to give her lasting relief for the pain.

Enter Podiatrist Ian from Amber Health, with a solution.

Foot Health Awareness Month

April is Foot Health Awareness Month and here at Amber Health we are encouraging you to think about your feet and look after them to help keep them free from injury, pain and illness.

Most of us don’t think about our feet often, but they are actually pretty amazing. Your feet contain one quarter of all your bones, with 33 joints, 26 bones, 19 muscles and 107 ligaments in each foot. And every time we use our feet, we are asking them to provide us with support and balance, whether we are standing, walking, running or jumping.

Since most of us take between 5,000 and 10,000 steps every day, it’s easy to see why our feet are so prone to illness and injury!
