Healthy Feet Can Aid With Fall Prevention

Poor weather conditions can produce natural hazards on the ground increasing the risk of injury due to falling. From a Podiatrist's perspective, simple measures to help prevent fall related injuries can begin with your feet.

 

Wearing proper sturdy shoes, using orthotics and using a walking aid when needed, can increase stability especially on slippery surfaces. Taking care of minor foot pain right away will help keep you in proper form when walking or performing other healthy activities and reduce risk of further injury. These and many more foot related conditions can be treated by Dr Stanford at Aurora Foot and Ankle Clinic.
