    The physical demands of podiatry care may negatively affect a podiatrist?s career.
    But what is the prevalence of work related musculoskeletal injuries and pain in Australian, New Zealand and United Kingdom podiatrists?

    Monash University and Western Sydney University researchers are measuring the prevalence of work related musculoskeletal injuries and pain in podiatrists.

    To be part of this unique research please go the survey link:

    Or contact:
    Dr Kelly-Ann Bowles (kelly-ann.bowles@monash.edu) or
    Dr Cylie Williams (cylie.williams@monash.edu)

    This research has been approved by the Monash University Human Research Ethics Committee ( MUHREC approval CF16/1009 - 2016000538)

    Currently struggling to work with patients due to wrist pain from heavy work load. Need advice from fellow suffers! GP and physio think it Carpel tunnel syndrome..... Anyone out there offer any help with regard to chiropody tools or chais or techniques

    I'd find a good OT to help, try to change the position, equipment (many nippers are very large for female hand size), a brace could help, as could standing. An occupational physio may also be of help.

    Hi All,

    Thanks to all who have completed this survey - we're in our last week (closes on the 22nd) and we're short our target, especially from the NZ.

    If you could tweet/FB/share with colleagues the survey link, FB or twitter link that would be appreciated. We'd love another 250 responses but even better if we could make it to 1000 (would take 325 responses) that would be awesome!!

    We want to hear from all pods, with or without pain! This is the first step in a large project looking at how we keep our pods safe in the workplace.


    You can also find us on FB and we will share the results there:

    or on twitter:

    Thanks in anticipation.
