Foot Care

Healthy feet become increasingly valuable as we age. A good specialist can help prevent or repair problems.

Seniors have a hard time staying active and independent if they can't stay on their feet. Podiatrists and other foot specialists provide expert advice about preventive

measures, orthopedic footwear and devices, and surgery. Common foot ailments include:

  • Fungal and bacterial problems
  • Heel and Achilles pain
  • Bunions and ingrown nails
  • Corns and calluses
  • Diabetes-related problems
