While there is no surefire way to prevent foot and ankle problems, one easy and important preventative practice is simply buying shoes that fit.

Many people haven’t had their feet sized in years, or even decades. That can be a problem since feet tend to splay out over a lifetime.

“You may have wore a size nine in your 20s,” Dr. Brian Kleiber said. “But now that you’re in your 50s, that’s probably changed.”

He also suggested that people ease into exercise routines, such as running, that place stress on feet and ankles.

“It’s important to maintain an overall fitness level,” he said “Don’t just decide to do six miles of running one day to start.”
