Another of Nicolas' key focuses a podiatrist in Woolwich is ensuring his patients experience the best possible standards of hygiene, so after each day's practice at Feet by Pody, Nicolas ensures that every re-usable tool that can be sterilized follows a rigorous three-hour sterilisation procedure.

Podiatric medical treatment is widely popular nowadays due to advancement in medical science. Today's people frequently visit a podiatrist's chamber with any of their foot and ankle issues rather than visiting a common physician. Podiatrists are basically considered as a specialist in treating all types of major and minor foot problems including muscle injuries, tendon, ligaments and joint problems, nail and skin issues for example callus, ingrown toenails, blisters, and different other fungal infections.

This will give the feet a chance to get used to the stress being placed upon them. Speed should be built up slowly and towards the end of the run, a gradual slowdown will allow the feet to return to the walking mode slowly. Blisters should be treated as early as possible. Use moleskin (or duct tape if you have nothing better), and cut a hole for the blister to rest in, to avoid pressure on it. If it must be popped, do so with a sterilized needle at the base of the blister.
