According to the American Podiatric Medical Association the average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. This means that by the age of 50 most individuals in relatively good health will have walked approximately 75,000 miles. With this amount of activity and stress, it’s hardly surprising that most people at one time or another in their lives will experience an annoying or painful foot problem. At the office of Gary Feldman, DPM, we help patients of all ages protect the health of their feet to enjoy optimal comfort and function throughout all daily activities.

Remember, taking a proactive approach to the health of your feet is far simpler than dealing with a preventable injury. Maintaining your feet for the long run depends on how well you treat and care for them today.
At the office of Gary Feldman, DPM, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
