MORE FOOT CARE TIPS FOR SENIORS

Seniors need to be cognizant of their feet more so than others. Due to their frequent use, your feet change over time and as your body changes (if you gain weight for instance), your feet can be impacted even more. Your feet are the means by which you navigate in this world and as you age, you naturally lose mobility, strength, and function. However, with a great health and wellness program, you can slow the process of aging, which includes in your feet as well. When your feet are properly taken care of, you decrease the risk of falls and increase your overall quality of life. The foot doctors at AllCare Foot & Ankle Center will partner with you to keep you moving for life. Contact us today!
