Geriatric Foot Care at Our Clinic

As we age, our feet undergo natural changes that can affect mobility, balance, and overall quality of life. At Our Clinic, we understand the unique foot care needs of older adults and are dedicated to providing comprehensive geriatric foot care services to help our senior patients maintain healthy, active lifestyles.

Understanding Geriatric Foot Health

The feet are a vital part of mobility and independence, especially for older adults. However, aging can bring about a variety of foot-related issues, including:

Decreased circulation

Reduced skin elasticity

Thinning of the fat pads on the soles of the feet

Weakening of muscles and ligaments

Development of foot deformities such as bunions, hammertoes, and arthritis

These changes can lead to foot pain, discomfort, and an increased risk of falls and other injuries. That’s why proper foot care is essential for maintaining mobility and preventing complications in older adults.

Comprehensive Geriatric Foot Care Services

At Our Clinic, we offer a range of geriatric foot care services tailored to the specific needs of older adults. Our experienced podiatrists and healthcare professionals provide:

Routine foot exams to assess skin integrity, circulation, sensation, and biomechanics

Treatment of common foot problems such as corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, and fungal infections

Customized orthotics and footwear recommendations to provide support, stability, and pressure relief

Management of foot conditions associated with chronic diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and peripheral neuropathy
