Today Dr. Reminga talks about the changes that happen to our feet as we age. Time has a way of taking a toll on our feet. As with most things we use repetitively, wear and tear can result… our feet are no different. Arguably, the feet are the MOST used and abused parts of the human body. On average, at age 80, a person will walk around the earth, at the equator… 5 times in their lifetime. That’s 115,000 miles or... over 216 million steps. Every part of the body ages, however… the feet in particular, can get worn down over a lifetime due to wear and tear from repeated impact, weight-bearing, pressure, friction and trauma. No wonder people often say… “My Feet Are Killing Me!” That statement may be the most common health complaint. Our feet are put through a lot over a lifetime… 216 million steps is impressive!

In today's program, Dr. Reminga talks in depth about the effects of time on the human foot. The feet lose resilience, elasticity, and strength as we age. What is the best course of action for aging feet? Dr. Reminga talks about this interesting topic in today’s program. We all age… there is not getting around that. Listen to Dr. Reminga and learn how to take care of your feet as you age.
