RCPod appears on Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4

Womens feet
The College gave listeners expert advice about the five stages of a woman's foot

The RCPod spoke to Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4 on Monday.

It happened after the publication of a recent Women and Equalities Committee report into the high rate of foot injuries in female footballers linked to footwear. Woman’s Hour was keen to discover more, so they invited the College onto the programme to discuss the different stages a woman’s foot goes through in a lifetime.

RCPod spokesperson, Emma McConnachie, joined Nuala McGovern to discuss the topic. Emma covered the changes that can occur in a woman’s foot structure, focussing on the changes that occur during pregnancy, post-partum and into menopause.

The segment is available on BBC Sounds at the 48-minute mark.
