The feet are flexible structures of bones, joints, muscles, and soft tissues that let us stand upright and perform activities like walking, running, and jumping. With increasing age our skin tends to get thinner and lose is elasticity. You may find minor wounds take longer to heal.
The older you get, the more you need a shoe which holds your foot firmly in place to give you adequate support. Shoes that have cushioning or shock absorbing soles will give you extra comfort while walking.

Exercise can also help to keep your feet healthy- it tones up muscles, helps to strengthen arches and stimulates blood circulation.

Feet are like cars, they need maintenance to run well. If you wake up some morning and can barely walk, or your toenails are loose and turning yellow... that's a maintenance call. Circualtion problems are common with older feet.

WAYS TO HELP YOUR FEET:

TAKE CARE OF YOUR FEET:

Prevent ingrown toenails by trimming toenails regularly if feet become unusually uncomfortable when walking or standing... hobble into a podiatrist office or consider trying support inserts from an athletic specialist reailer.
