When we are born we are given our feet. As we grow and mature, our feet grow with us. They are with us for our first steps, our first fall, our walk down the aisle and so much more. Our feet take us on journeys, to work, to school and just about everywhere else. They are so important to us and we often do not appreciate them enough. As we age, our feet start to wear down from all of their use. The average life expectancy of an American has increased by 30 years. This means that we have 30 more years to use our feet.

The body’s “mirror of health” is its feet. Why is this? Well that is because podiatrists are usually the first ones to see signs and symptoms of oncoming diseases and conditions. Diabetes, arthritis, and vascular diseases can all be found in the feet first. Some of the most common signs of these disorders are brittle nails, dry skin, and tingling in the feet. If you experience any of these symptoms in your feet, it is important to see a podiatrist right away. Once examined, you can prevent a minor problem from becoming a severe issue.

With the right foot care, many of your foot and ankle problems can be prevented. Foot pain is not just a part of growing older, and you should not live your life thinking that it is. More than 300 foot and ankle ailments can be prevented just by visiting a podiatrist twice a year. These examinations are very important. A podiatrist will help you find the right fit for your shoe, teach you different exercise options to keep your feet in optimal health, and can also prescribe custom orthotics to insert into your shoes to help aid in reducing pain and other foot and ankle conditions.

Walking is also key for the aging foot. If we do not walk our feet and our bodies will not be healthy. Over time the feet will deteriorate and weaken. Sores and structural issues can occur. Avoid these severe health issues by making time to walk for at least 30 minutes a day.
