Podiatrists sharing their knowledge
PodiPedia’s goal is to help the public understand what Podiatrists do and how we can help you.
Our mission is to educate, and we are not alone, because loads of other Podiatrists share our ambition.
We spoke with Podiatrist Steph Owen at her Worcester clinic, SO Podiatry, and learned a few things about how she helps her patients, the public and other health and fitness professionals…
As well as being a fantastic and experienced Podiatrist, specialising in MSK Podiatry, Verruca treatments, Nail Surgery and more, Steph is also really active in the community offering education, advice and training.
If you are a Podiatrist or a health and fitness professional, there are loads of ways that you can share your knowledge with the public. Below are are few things that Steph has done.
