If your feet are sore, aching or tired, it makes it difficult to stay active and independent. Foot problems and foot pain are not a natural part of getting older and ensuring that you wear the right shoe can significantly decrease the chance of you having a trip or stumble. Some foot problems can be the first sign of more serious medical conditions such as diabetes, circulation or nerve conditions. These problems may require treatment from a podiatrist or other health professionals.
