FOOT CARE FOR SENIORS

Do you have problems reaching your toes?

Or are you caring for an elderly relative or friend, have you asked them about their feet recently.

As we age reaching our toes can become difficult and cutting our toenails can become impossible.Fungal nail infections can go unnoticed  or untreated.

If you or a loved one are having  a problem reaching your toes a visit to a podiatrist can help. Podiatrists treat all kinds of problems associated with the foot and lower limbs, from toenail cutting to ingrown nail surgery. They are able to treat diseases, injuries, and deformities of the foot and ankle, as well as the problems seniors experience most often: heel pain, plantar fasciitis, nail fungus, and foot odor, They can also catch the signs of diabetes, arthritis, and nerve and circulatory disorders, all of which can be detected in the feet.

Call us if you have a question we can help.
