What is ‘ConsultingFootPain’?


Welcome to this free health site with some self-help advice. You can learn more about foot health and the profession of podiatry as the main feature, but since establishing the site, the range of subjects has been extended. In September 2023 I am launching a wider range of topics which are not directed at the foot alone but contain information of value to patients from a different author or clinical condition. 

ConsultingFootPain offers impartial information without the promotion of products other than recommended sources. The opinions expressed in articles are those of the editor/authors alone. Use the magnifying glass (top right) to search for subject material or type in your subject.

 DISCLAIMER: This site does not replace the need for a professional consultation. 

If you cannot find an answer to your foot health concern, contact me at busypencilcasecfp@gmail.com. You may wish to write about clinical concerns and leave a comment at the bottom of articles stating, ‘keep confidential. Professional face-to-face consultations are not available. This site will only respond to people seeking genuine help and does not provide legal advice.  Please help us help others so that we can share information.

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.

You can find out more about a career in podiatry. Much of the material published comes from the USA podiatry, orthopaedics and physiotherapy field. At present most professional UK sites associated with podiatry and orthopaedics are membership sites and offer limited patient advice. Local practices vary widely in the type of material published, but there are some good sites so check locally with your podiatrist. ConsultingFootPain (CFP) is independent, selects material of the highest value, and builds upon personal requests. CFP now has over 200  linked health articles, some not related to feet but well-being. 

David’s philosophy – if I stir up a hornet’s nest and achieve active improvement for foot health information, then I can retire happily. Until then, I will continue to write articles, conduct interviews, publish books and place the stamp of foot health at a higher priority level than is often given. You can also follow me on Facebook – www.facebook.com/david.tollafield or Tweet @myfootjourneys

Should you wish to consider a Career in Podiatry you will find material to assist students and careers teachers.
