To make it clear Andrew our Foot Health Practitioner is not a podiatrist.
A foot health practitioner has 2 years training, whereas a podiatrist has 3 years and the extra year includes a placement in a hospital with surgical procedures eg ulcers, packing wounds and gait analysis.
Andrew is able to:
– nail cutting, including advice and treatment of ingrown nails
– removal of corns, calluses and hard skin
– fungal and thickened nails treated
– Verrucae advice and treatment (not freezing)
– Diabetic and high risk foot care assessment

Researchers funded by the MS Society have found that short periods of moderate intensity aerobic exercise (like walking or steady cycling) can help to improve fatigue levels and enhance overall quality of life in people with MS. Read

We now have balance-trainer and motomed in place.
Training for both pieces of equipment will be finished this Friday 17th. Walls bars will be up soon in Physio room. We have also purchased therabands and a physio ball. We are fortunate that a laptop has been donated for therapists use.
Members will book an appointment with Tricia (Friday) or David (Mon or Weds) for an induction of the equipment and setting of a programme (book a normal appointment slot/time). When you are confident and you can use the equipment and follow your programme, you can then use but only if another therapist/sue/volunteer is in the centre (H&S).
There will be an induction fee (to be agreed), gym sessions will be free for now (but a nominal charge will be introduced later to cover maintenance of equipment/additional insurance). Induction slots will be available before the end of the month.
Our next Open Day will be on Wednesday, 5 February from 10 am to 3 pm at Peachcroft Christian Centre, Lindsay Drive, Abingdon, OX14 2RT. The theme for this Open Day will be “Eating, Drinking, Kitchen and Clothing”. We hope to have information and examples of both small and larger aids. As always all are welcome to attend our Open Days. Just drop in. Refreshments available.
