Three out of every four adults experience some kind of foot ailment during their lifetime. Excessive weight gain, poor shoe choices, and medical conditions like diabetes or vascular disease can all contribute to foot and ankle difficulties. Some issues, such as non-healing wounds, can even lead to life-threatening conditions when ignored or untreated.
