Why ‘Consulting Foot Pain’?

ConsultingFootPain (brand name) was set up to provide information for everyone. Good foot health can make a difference in your life. My passion is to make academic material more comprehensive. Dissecting away myths, fables, and fiction together with useless products is important. Foot health and podiatry offer so much more. Much of the material published comes from the US field of podiatry, orthopaedics and physiotherapy. At present most professional UK sites associated with podiatry and orthopaedics are membership sites and offer limited advice. Local practices vary widely in the type of material published. As ConsultingFootPain (CFP) remains independent it can select material of the highest value and build upon requests. During the Covid-19 period, when lockdowns were in place, CFP tripled its output and now has over 150 linked health articles, some not related to feet but wellbeing. 

If I stir up a hornet’s nest and achieve active improvement, then I can retire happily. Until then I will write articles, conduct interviews, publish books and place the stamp of foot health at a higher priority level than is often given. By signing up you will receive an update on information published in the last few months so you don’t need to keep checking the site. You can also join me on Facebook – www.facebook.com/david.tollafield

Should you wish to consider a career in podiatry you will find material on my site as well to assist you further.  CFP has banded together to write a brand new guide on podiatry as a career which we hope to publish in 2022. By signing up you can keep ahead of the top articles.
