Improved Health Outcomes
If left untreated, common foot symptoms, especially in the older population, can lead to more serious issues like falls and accidents or chronic illness. In patients with diabetes, the disease often causes nerve damage in the feet and very slow wound healing. The slow wound healing can lead to infections and even amputations. Therefore vigilant foot care , especially as we get older, is critical in the prevention and proper management of chronic disease.
