Preventive foot health

Older adults are at very high risk for foot problems. In one study 87% of older people reported atleast one foot problem. Feet widen and flatten, and the fat padding on the sole of the foot wears down as people age. Older people's skin is alsodryer. Foot pain, in fact, can be the first sign of trouble in many illnesses related to aging, such as arthritis, diabetes, and circulatory disease. Foot problems can also impair balance and function in older adults.
