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 more about a career in podiatry. Much of the material published comes from the USA 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. ConsultingFootPain (CFP) is independent and 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 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.
