As we age, foot problems can develop that may lead to limited mobility and ultimately more serious health conditions. Routine foot care is important for:
- maintaining muscle and bone strength by supporting mobility and physical activity
- proper foot and body mechanics which help prevent falls in seniors
- identifying early signs of other more serious health issues such as diabetes or poor circulation
It is recommended that seniors receive foot care every five to six weeks.
