Blisters are not just the most common FOOT injury in sport...

They're THE MOST COMMON injury in sport!

What's more, foot blisters are associated with a 50% increased likelihood of additional training-related injury (in a study of 2,130 male US Marine Corps recruits participating in initial physical training)
Blisters are not just the most common FOOT injury in sport... They're THE most common injury in sport!

Did You Know?

  • Many of your clients aren't asking you (or have stopped asking you) about blisters!

  • Most don't think there's anything you (or anyone) can really do.

  • They think heat is inevitable, sweat (moisture) is inevitable, and friction is the inevitable consequence.

  • That's when they come to accept blisters as inevitable in their active lifestyles.

I've Been Helping Athletes With Blisters For 15 Years

“After all the various, typical ‘blister remedies’ suggested by the collective experience on the track, it become such an issue I could not even stand on it, let alone move. My race was done! Certain that it wouldn’t make any difference, I hobbled my way over to Rebecca's tent to present my dilemma. At 8:10am, she had finished with my foot. I stood, and could noticeably tell the difference immediately. I could walk! So I decided to shuffle around for one lap to test it out. By the back straight I was unable to feel any discomfort in the area and had returned to a full run. Without Rebecca’s treatment, my race was over. I was able to put on another 34km to the tally due the treatment.”

Matt, SA

“Monday she refereed 1 hour of OzTag games, then played a 1-hour game. In a very competitive game, she came off and she had tears in her eyes. I said “are your blisters hurting” and she said “no my feet are the best I have ever felt them, dad, I cant feel any blisters at all!” She was so happy and emotional that for the first time in 4yrs she had no blisters. And tonight she played competition State Cup touch-football. As soon as she got home I asked the question again “how’s your feet” and she said “dad still no blisters and can you please thank the lady you have been talking to and let her know how my feet are and thank her for helping me”. She is just so exited to finally be blister-free from your help and recommendations.”

Ray, NSW

Here's What I Can Tell You

The real reason you're struggling to really help your clients with their blisters:

  1. You’re focusing on the wrong cause of blisters (this is widespread)
  2. You lack the framework to work to (and resources)


The fact is, we're coming at blisters from the wrong angle - and it's a hard habit to break

And so...

Is It Any Wonder?

  • Blisters continue to be the most common injury in sport?
  • You're using a scattergun approach to blister prevention?
  • You're not sure how to do things differently?
  • Your clients are putting up with blisters?

Start Managing Blisters Better

Your Clients Need You!

Dealing with blisters can be tricky, but it doesn't have to be

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Is taping your go-to blister strategy? Feel like you’re clutching at straws if it doesn’t work?

  • Ever had someone get blisters with a shoe you recommended, and you’re at a complete loss to explain why?

  • Do you compromise your orthotic prescription to avoid arch blisters from orthotic irritation?

  • Do you have clients say they’ve tried every prevention strategy there is - and you don’t know what to suggest next?

In 2021, Dr Doug Richie and I Looked At All The Blister Research

Here's What We Found

  • Inconsistencies

    Both the lay and the academic side of blister information is fraught with inconsistencies, leading to confusion and over-simplifications to the point where it’s just plain wrong.

  • Friction

    A closer look at that word is required. While “friction” is a fundamental factor to the cause of foot blisters, it’s more counterintuitive than you might expect, because friction has two different meanings. And this is where a misinterpretation occurs that makes us look in the wrong places for preventive opportunities.

  • Hiding In Plain Sight

    Doug and I are just flabbergasted that as podiatrists, we aren’t aware of the "bone movement" aspect of blister causation. This missing link of bone movement is literally hiding in plain sight and is where podiatrists can play a leading big role in managing blisters better.

“Congratulations on putting together a fantastic resource which is easy to navigate and offers the most comprehensive educational tool about friction lesions which I have ever seen.”

Doug Richie, DPM

“I highly recommend this course for all podiatrists, especially those working with the active or athletic population. Blister management is an important skill to bring to the sports medicine team, and it's a skill that podiatrists are perfectly positioned to deliver. Effectively managing blisters can make a significant impact on the overall health and performance of athletes across a range of sports. This is the ultimate course you need to give you those skills.”

Kent Sweeting BHlthSc(Pod), Performance Podiatry & Queensland Orthotic Lab

“This is truly a thorough and complete resource on everything blisters, offering practical treatment solutions and careful explanations supported with scientific reference. The course content is clear and well guided. For any Podiatrist working with athletes and those active, the skills and additional resources tools this course provides are a welcomed and valuable addition.”

Natalie Morgan BSc(Pod), Nailsworth Podiatry

Foot blisters are a legitimate pathology

And Podiatrists Are Legitimately The Right People To Be Dealing With Them!

I hope you can see there is an opportunity here to help your clients more with this misunderstood, often overlooked and ridiculously common foot problem. As podiatrists, and as sports podiatrists, this is our problem to fix, just as much as plantar heel pain and Achilles tendinopathy are.

FAQs

  • Think you can save money and do this yourself?

    Unlikley, otherwise you'd already be doing it. This topic is counterintuitive. There are errors in both academia and the lay media. This course is designed to help you hit the ground running. The cost of researching and designing the marketing materials alone would be substantial, in monetary terms and in time.

  • Think this costs too much?

    This knowledge will last your whole career (unlike equipment - and it won't depreciate). And you'll be treating the most common injury in sport better than 99% of other podiatrists.

  • How long do I have access?

    As long as remain subscribed as a member, you'll have ongoing access to the course, the private group and all the resources and bonuses. You'll also receive ongoing updates, new marketing materials and support to help you develop and continue growing your blister prevention business. You are free to cancel your subscription at any time, but there is a 12 month minimum term to cover our costs so we will prorate your bill. Nobody has ever cancelled early and there is a 3 month money back guarantee, so you can feel safe that you're making the right decision by joining Blister Prevention Business.

  • Don't have the time for this?

    I get it! Bite-sized, easy-to-find, intuitive, jump in and out where/whenever you like. Done!

  • Think this is too hard?

    On top of the knowledge and marketing materials, you've got world-class support. Doug and I will be in the private Facebook group for all your questions, to keep you moving forward.
