your feet are safe in our hands
Hi, my name is Steve Bloor, and I am so grateful to be able to help people regain their lifestyles by helping them to stand, walk & run painlessly. It's been such a privilege to have helped thousands of patients over the last 30 years. All I can say is, "Thank you".
I live on the beautiful Lizard Peninsula, near the coast with my wife Liz and our four children.
I'm a Registered Podiatrist, with 30 years experience in treating people. I successfully completed a 3 year full-time Diploma in Podiatric Medicine (DPodM - Degree equivalent) in the 1980's at Plymouth School of Podiatry leading to State Registration.
Since graduating I've attended many post-graduate courses in musculo-skeletal podiatry & other areas of lower-limb healthcare. I've worked in both the private sector & NHS, and I believe Podiatry can form an integral part of overall healthcare in order to optimise our overall health and welbeing.
I am passionate about promoting good foot-health in what I call "Positive Podiatry." I see healthy feet as foundational for general health because healthy feet enable us to stay active! As part of my commitment to promoting overall health I founded Helston Health Walks in 2010.
I lecture around the UK to NHS Podiatry & Physiotherapy departments as well as to groups of independent practitioners on the theory & practice of podiatric biomechanics and orthotic therapy, as well as more recently on the health benefits of Natural Human Gait.
My approach to treatment is curative as opposed to just palliative, believing that if you can correct poor joint alignment, posture and function then pain relief is long-lasting & can be permanent. So I utilise rehabilitation exercises, as well as orthoses for treatment of lower-limb injuries.
Of course preventative treatment is also desirable so, as well as treating adults, I also treat children. Specialising in Podiatric Biomechanics & Musculo-skeletal Podiatry for over 20 years has given me a greater ability to diagnose the causes of joint & muscle problems throughout the lower-limbs.
