Qualified podiatrist: Marcel Moreton's
work at the Mid Canterbury Foot Clinic
has expanded and another experienced
podiatrist has been employed to give
patients greater options.
A podiatrist is qualified by their
education and training to diagnose and
treat conditions affecting the foot,
ankle and related structures of the leg.
Marcel Moreton of the Mid
Canterbury Foot Clinic has lived in
Rolleston for eight years with his family
and is well-positioned to tend to
people's podiatric needs throughout
the Selwyn area.
He has been qualified and has
worked in this specialist field for more
than 10 years.
While he has a particular interest in
children's podiatry, he focuses on all
aspects of the science -- from
sportswear through to the treatment of
corns and calluses, and in-grown
He also deals with diabetics' foot
problems, manufactures orthotic
insoles and provides shoe advice.
During the past five years, his clinics
have expanded and he has recently
taken on another experienced
podiatrist to offer patients greater
options regarding where and when
they can be treated.
To that end, his Lincoln clinic has
moved to new premises at 32 Gerald St,
alongside Lincoln Eye Optometrists.
The Rolleston Clinic is open an
additional day a week, now offering
appointments on Friday afternoons.
And recognising a growing need,
Marcel will shortly be opening clinics in
both Halswell and Hornby.
Callout to people with
Poor hearing: We tend to take this sense
A local hearing-care expert is giving
people living with hearing difficulties
an incentive to do something about it
today. This is because people often
struggle for years with hearing
difficulties, telling themselves, ''My
hearing really isn't that bad'' or ''I will
get around to it eventually''. This is
despite ongoing problems such as:
Struggling to follow conversations in
noisy environments, such as restaurants
and social situations.
Difficulty following conversations on
Being thought of as being rude or
aloof by others who mistake poor
hearing for poor listening.
Regularly asking people to repeat
themselves -- ''Sorry, what was that?''
Although hearing loss is often
thought of as being an overall lack of
volume, more commonly people with
hearing difficulties only miss the
higher-pitched sounds in speech, such
as ''s'', ''th'', ''f'', ''t'' and ''k''. In the
presence of background noise, it
becomes extremely hard for someone
with hearing problems to fill in the
gaps and follow the person they are
listening to, as sounds are jumbled.
By amplifying the higher frequencies
in line with the wearer's unique pattern
of hearing loss, hearing aids fill in the
gaps, and conversations and music
become clear once again.
In a recent independent study,
people who had been fitted with a
modern receiver-in-the-ear hearing aid
were asked about their experience with
the device. A total of 100 per cent of
those who took part experienced
improvement in noisy environments,
with 80 per cent reporting significant or
massive improvement, and 100 per
cent also agreed with the statement ''I
wish I had done something sooner!''
