Football needs Podiatry
Football and podiatry. What a combination! The FIFA World Cup has arrived in South Africa. 64 games, each game with at 22 pairs of players feet, plus the 3 pairs of the officials, on the field at any one time! (Unless someone gets sent off).
Add the team officials and finally the fans – 98,000 of them for the first game. Feet for Africa. Call for the podiatrist.
The podiatrists associated with the World Cup are ready for foot problems that might afflict players, officials and fans.
I was surprised to learn from one of the World Cup podiatrists that very few countries have a podiatrist associated with their teams. I think this is a great opportunity to get them to understand that many foot injuries can be prevented and treated better by podiatrists than anybody else.
During the next month, I hope everybody enjoys this great event and when ‘footbal feet’ get sore, they will find some special South African podiatrists ready.
