Foot Care Isn’t a Luxury, It’s a Necessity — Especially For Seniors

Most of us spend very little time thinking about our feet, and even less time actively taking care of them. Yet by age 50, the average American logs 75,000 miles on the pair, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association.

By paying attention, getting care and treatment when you need it, and managing conditions like diabetes and heart disease, you might just get another 75,000 miles out of them.

Foot disorders in older people are very common and can lead to pain and disability, and consequently loss of mobility and independence. MORE
