The Importance of looking after your feet
Most people don't think about their feet until there's a problem. Foot issues are very common due to the fact that we spend at least 4 hours each day on our feet. Poor fitting shoes and high heels can cause bunions, calluses, corns, ingrown toenails and many other painful foot conditions. Foot problems can lead to more serious issues, including knee, hip, and back pain. It is very important to look after your feet as foot problems tend to get worse as we become older.
