Introduction

Foot deformities and other foot conditions are relatively common in individuals of all ages. They can disrupt foot alignment, cause severe pain and sensation abnormalities, and affect walking and functional abilities. These symptoms can lead to decreased physical activity and frailty in older adults. In this programme, Helene Simpson discusses various foot conditions. She outlines the assessment for each condition and explores the most effective, evidence-based therapeutic interventions to ensure optimal outcomes.
