Will your feet last through your whole journey in life?
The foot is a unique structure specially designed to cope with all the body’s weight, activities and lifestyle. Our foot changes as we sit, stand, move and age. A healthy foot is one in which all the parts are in good condition and performing their functions properly.
The foot functions most effectively when the balance and weight bearing of the body is correctly distributed throughout the foot. Our feet need to feel comfortable to function correctly and allow us to remain mobile. We are more likely to stop being physically active if we cannot walk comfortably, which can reduce our quality of life.
With proper detection, intervention, and care, most foot problems can be lessened or prevented. Good foot care and regular foot checks are an important part of your health care.
