Falls can limit your independence. And the fear of falls can stop you from living your life the way you want. In severe cases, falls can lead to chronic pain, disability and dependent care.
Your podiatrist can assess your risk of falling and advise you on the best way to reduce your risk. Your podiatrist can help by treating any foot pain linked to falls and identifying the best footwear to keep you upright.
Your podiatrist can also design a strengthening program for your feet and legs, with simple, effective exercises that can be done at home without special equipment.
