    Podiatry Arena is a forum for discussion BETWEEN Podiatrists and other foot health professionals.

    Increasingly people with their own foot problems are posting here seeking help. This is not the forum for this and these messages get deleted. The forum rules are explicit:
    As much as we would like to help, the aim is for this forum not to be overtaken by specifc patient complaints (look at the numbers posting in the Foot Health Forum), so this forum can stay focused on communication BETWEEN podiatrists and other foot health professionals. There is nothing wrong with Podiatrists seeking advice about particular complex patient problems.

    Occasionaly someone has posted a message about their own foot problem and it has taken time for a moderator or an admin to notice it and Podiatry Arena members have taken the time to reply. In light of this the thread is usually left as effort has been expended by Podiatry Arena members. This is the exception and almost all theads will be deleted.

    There is also the legal issue of providing online advice which has not been resolved in some countries, so we just do not want to go that way.

    Please Note: at the top of every page it says "A global forum for communication between foot health professionals" - how can it be made any clearer?

    The welcome email every new member gets, explains the above policy. Please read it.

    Please don't waste your time sending us abusive emails if your message gets deleted.
