Foot Care Practitioner
Foot Care Practitioner Diploma
The most satisfying feeling in life is to be able to take care of others. The foot care practitioner diploma gives you a chance to fulfil this. The foot is often neglected, even though it is a complex part of the human body. It is known that in a lifetime, we walk as many as 3 rounds of the earth and with each step, we place two and a half times our body mass on 52 bones (26 for each foot). Going by these statistics, we can deduce that although our feet are strong like an appliance part, can be sensitive to stress or injury if used beyond their capability. This is when the therapist steps in. Even when it is a little wrong with the feet, certain factors may hamper people from taking care of them. Stiffness in the knees, hip joint pains, arthritis etc. may restrain access to the feet. However, other issues such as corn, flat-foot, nodules, blisters and inflammation, structural flaw and even nail conditions can be cured minus any medical intervention or surgical procedure. Then there are some people who understand the importance of keeping their body parts in prime condition. They often take the assistance of a foot health expert who is a professional, and adept at providing care, treatment and advice for achieving happy feet. This course consists of 10 sessions of theory teaching, which can be pursued from home. Please note that this Course does not entitle you to join the HCPC register or be recognised as a Podiatrist. This course will not make you a podiatrist but you will come across all the basic guidelines of foot care for further studies. If you are looking to take up training in podiatry/chiropody, this course will give you a great start in the field and may help towards your application.
