Foot problems and foot pain are not a natural part of ageing. Take simple steps to ensure poor balance, foot problems or ill-fitting shoes don’t trip you up.
Footcare is important for everyone, as our feet enable us to walk, shop, drive, do housework, and importantly lead an active lifestyle. When choosing the right shoes ask advice from your podiatrist, physiotherapist or occupational therapist and remember shoes should fit firmly and have a non-slip sole.
Put your best foot forward by wearing the right shoes. Watch this to discover how.
Be physically active. Include exercises that build strength in your legs and feet and improve your balance.
