Feet Should Support You For Life

It’s not surprising that decades of walking, running, jogging and even standing can all leave their mark on your feet. Aging brings many changes to your feet, which can leave them more likely to hurt.

Foot Pain and Aging: Problems You Could Encounter

As you start putting more miles on your feet, you may notice that:

Your feet may change shape. In many people, the arch under the foot begins to collapse as ligaments become more lax. This often leads to pain in the arch and heel. You may need to buy longer shoes to accommodate your changing feet. If you keep buying the same size shoes that you wore when you were 35, your feet may hurt more because of being stuck in too-small shoes.

You may loose cushioning in your feet. The natural fat padding in your feet that helps cushion your weight tends to dwindle with age. This can leave the bones in the balls of your feet with less protection, causing pain.

Your skin changes. Blood circulation to your feet decreases as you get older. Not only does this lead to the loss of fat padding, it also causes your skin to become thinner and drier. Your feet are more likely to develop cracks and other superficial injuries, and with the decreased circulation they’ll heal more slowly than in years past.

How HyProCure can help?

HyProCure relieves, and can even prevent, a variety of seemingly unrelated foot and body conditions by correcting a commonly unknown problem—misaligned feet.
When your feet are misaligned, it leads to a chain reaction of misalignment in the body, affecting the knees, hips and back, often resulting in pain when standing, walking and running. The most common sign of misaligned feet is the inward rolling of the ankles, which is called Hyperpronation. However, misaligned feet can lead to a variety of other symptoms including, flat feet, foot pain, back pain, knee pain, hip pain, bunions and hammertoe.
