We came, we saw, and we... declared War on Foot Pain! College of Podiatry Conference in Harrogate proved to be a place where curious, knowledgeable and passionate professionals meet. We were overwhelmed by their positive and supportive response to Aussie Soles and would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU.
Many people asked: "Why do you need to be so radical and declare a War?" Well, how else could we attract attention to the need to promote Podiatry as an essential health issue? Many people consider foot pain a norm, forgetting that untreated foot problems lead to loss of mobility in older age. And as we are all likely to live longer we need to maintain our quality of life and independence!
Therefore we have decided to convert our little playful stunt into a proper campaign. Many of our new friends and professional podiatrists extended a helpful hand and participated in our pilot survey: its full results will be published in a few days on our new website dedicated to War on Foot Pain.

We will also invite other podiatrists who feel this campaign has value to participate in the survey and exchange ideas on how to take Podiatry mainstream.
Once again, many thanks to the College of Podiatry and all the wonderful people who visited our stand for their support. We had a fantastic time in Harrogate!
James, The Founder of Aussie Soles UK
