Padding and cushioning are fundamental aspects of podiatric care that significantly contribute to the comfort, well-being, and overall health of patients. Understanding their importance is essential for Allied Health Assistants supporting Podiatrists in delivering effective care.

It’s essential to provide clear and comprehensive information to the patient regarding the treatment plan and its expected outcomes.
