060-Happy Feet

Show Notes

Issues with feet and lower limbs tend to be a problem that plagues all hikers at one time or another. These issues can be relatively minor and annoying on short hikes and crippling on longer more difficult hikers. Either way they stop us from enjoying our outdoor adventures.

In this podcast episode I talk with Canberra based Podiatrist Matthew Hotchkis from Podiatry Professionals about some of the more common lower limb issues that can cause problems for hikers and discuss ways to minimise their impact as well as prevention and treatment.

You get to listen to a program of your choice, at a time of your choosing, and through your preferred technology e.g. the computer, a smart phone, or a tablet, etc.

Podcasts have the advantage over other types of media in that you can be doing other activities  such as driving to work or exercising while you listen.
