Your feet and ankles are complex, weight-bearing structures that are subjected to a great deal of strain day in and day out – while working, exercising, or playing sports, or during routine activity such as walking or climbing stairs. Wearing ill-fitting shoes eventually takes a toll on your feet, as well. And as you age, you are more likely to experience foot and ankle problems ranging from arthritis to nerve damage and poor blood circulation to diabetes and ulcer-causing infections.
