NEWS RELEASE February 12, 2016 Contact: Betty S. Weemes, 787.5117
The American Podiatric Medical Association conducted a recent study showing that almost 75% of all Americans will have at least one foot problem throughout their life.
Most foot problems are related to abuse or overuse of the feet, while other foot problems are caused by deformities or congenital malformations.
Your foot’s health is very important to sustaining mobility and balance throughout your life.
