National Foot Health Awareness Month

Foot healthcare is highlighted every April during National Foot Health Awareness month. According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, approximately 20 percent of the U.S. population has at least one foot problem annually. Your Total Foot Care Specialist would like to remind the public that foot pain is not normal.
