Finding your feet again.
It looks like we are getting some summer-like weather here in Calgary. The never-ending winter seems to have finally come to a close! Summer weather means we’ll be putting away our winter parkas and boots in favour of light clothes and sandals! But for some of us, taking out those open-toed shoes and heading out barefoot makes us a bit shy or self-conscious by the state of our feet.
The winter months can be tiring and hard on our feet, leading to issues such as severe cracked or dry skin, calluses, corns and warts. You may also experience other common foot problems such as athlete’s foot, ingrown nails and fungus. These problems are common for everyone, and as much as we can tell you it’s perfectly normal, it doesn’t make wearing your summer sandals any easier.
New Foot Care Clinics!
In partnership together, the Medicine Shoppe Crowfoot and Marion Smith-Olson from Toes on the Go Advanced Foot Care are proud to offer foot clinics on the third Wednesday of every month! Making it easier for you to feel confident stepping outside this summer!
As a Certified Podologist, Marion is extremely knowledgeable about foot conditions and treatment options. She knows and understands the importance of taking care of your feet. A Certified Podologist has completed advanced training and education in infection control, advanced foot care, gait analysis and biomechanics of the foot and lower leg. This allows them to provide personalized care and specific treatment based on each client.
We are pleased to offer our clients a subsidized rate of only $20 for Marion to assess, provide care, and make recommendations specific to your foot health needs.
