About Rebecca Rushton.png

Hi, I’m Rebecca.

I’ve been a podiatrist for 25 years and have a special interest in the management of foot blisters in sport.

It was 2008 and it took 8 minutes...

Eight minutes to get blisters at the back of my heels :(

Long story short, I read a lot stuff (research papers), changed a few things, and now I don't get blisters any more.

Since 2012, I've been helping athletes get on top of their own blister issues through my Blister Prevention website and by volunteering at multiday ultramarathon events.
